Phil

{cell_title}

Phil Marsten

Phil Marsten is a member of the Cross County Pony Club, the rival pony club to Pine Hollow’s own Horse Wise. He recently started taking riding lessons at Pine Hollow. Phil and Stevie are intensely competitive and they constantly try to outdo each other in the ring or on the trails.

It is obvious to everyone else that they are attracted to each other but they spend so much time arguing they fail to see it themselves.

Stevie pretends not to care about Phil but she gets intensely jealous if any other girl shows interest. And Phil can’t work out what Stevie wants. It is a tumultuous friendship and a budding romance, but not without its hassles.

Glenn Meldrum ( Plays Phil )

It was rather a casual beginning to his career in show business. Glenn’s father read in the paper that they were looking for kids to play the lead role in the Australian television series Genie from Down Under, and asked if he wanted to give it a go. Glenn said O.K., did his first ever audition and scored the lead role in a series which was acclaimed in both Australia and Britain. "I was only eight then," Glenn explains. "And I thought I would just go for it and if I didn’t get it, no problems!"

Glenn is one of the coolest young actors in the business. Although dedicated and extremely professional, he has a laid back acceptance of the life he is now leading. "When I audition, if I get the part that’s great. If I don’t I just move on. That’s showbiz," he explains.

He was one of the charmed few picked from over 1000 talented youngsters who auditioned for the stage show The Sound of Music, and played Friedrich von Trapp during its Melbourne record breaking season. His other stage roles include Gavroche in Les Miserables and Young Peter in Mame.

Glenn has played comedy roles in the 9 Network’s Kindy Theatre and appeared in three Australian movies, including the acclaimed The Wogboy. He has done dozens of commercials and loves singing, dancing and Music Theatre lessons.

Glenn plays a lot of sport, including football, basketball, cricket, tennis and roller hockey. "And I love horse-riding. Every year we go on holidays to Bright and we ride there. I’m getting pretty good at it but I will be having lessons for this role," Glenn says.

I think I like him, because he’s kind of like me. He’s a normal 14 year old boy and he likes the girls. It will be good to play him because he’s similar to me so I know what he’s thinking.

The Saddle Club™ series stars three heroines, Stevie, Carole and Lisa, who form The Saddle Club™ at the Pine Hollow Stables. Each character has a distinctly different personality but all share an equal love of horses and a strong loyalty to each other.
