India Mullen announces she's leaving Red Rock as season 2 wraps
School's out for the cast of TV3 soap Red Rock as the stars head off on a four-month break.
Cast members such as Adam Weafer, Kathy Belton, Denise McCormack and Richard Keogh will be looking forward to some fun in the sun after filming wrapped on series two of the hit show yesterday.
However, not everyone will be back on set in September when the show kicks off its third season.
Actress India Mullen, who plays Katie Kiely on the series, has decided to say goodbye to the show, the Herald can reveal.
The 22-year-old has decided to try new acting opportunities.
"We are sad to see India go but equally so grateful to have had her as part of the Red Rock family," a TV3 spokeswoman said.
"She is on screens until the end of this year though, so isn't going anywhere just yet. The door has been left open for her [to return]."
The brunette has been part of the show's main cast since Red Rock debuted in January last year.
Meanwhile, Mullen's co-star Adam Weafer, who plays her on/off boyfriend on the show, revealed he plans on spending the summer looking for more work.
"I am going to go and hunt for some jobs and if it doesn't happen I'll get my own work," he said.
The actor is also a member of indie band Where's Luke? and hopes the coming months will bring success for the group.
"I have a band and I am releasing an EP. We are going to work on that over the summer.
"Music is amazing, that's my other half. It's great to relieve the brain sometimes because you can get so wound up in your character."
The Red Rock season finale airs next Thursday at the later time of 10pm
