Spring 2002, Pooja spent five months in Spain playing one of the lead roles, Sinjata, in the Sky One's series 'Is Harry On The Boat?’ based on the
best selling book and film. The story is about holiday reps and what they get up to in Ibiza. All the shooting was done in Almunecar in Southern Spain.
About the Series - from SKY-ONE Summer 2002 brochure
Is Harry On The Boat?
Will Harry be too hot for you…? Before Footballers’
Wives, there was Dream Team; before Club Reps,
Ibiza Uncovered. Sky One leads the way once again
with the sexiest drama series to hit the beach yet,
Is Harry On The Boat?, the first really honest
interpretation of contemporary life in Ibiza.
Whether you’re a leftover from the ‘Summer of Love’, about to embark on
your first clubbing odyssey or just looking for the ultimate chill-out, Is Harry
on the Boat? will be the definitive entertainment excursion. In the spirit of the
film adaptation of Colin Butts’ best-selling book, Sky One’s hedonistic new
drama series lays bare our reps’ relationships with holidaymakers and locals
in Europe’s sizzling party capital, Ibiza.
Preparing to guide you through a pure
rush of entertainment this summer,
our sexy six-pack of reps include the
adorable but dodgy cockney rogue
Garry (Quentin Jones), a real ‘Now
you see me now you don’t’ character;
Party King and shag monster of San
An. Then there’s Robbie (Charles
Kemp), of ‘**** me, she’s fit!’ fame.
He’s a cute and quirky Manc with a
taste for top totty and a passion that
burns all the way to his crotch, but
the amateur of the bunch when it
comes to the ladies. Gabriel (Gregory
Finnegan) is an alluring willowy figure
from the Emerald Isle, credible and
seductive, who takes a turn to the
Not to be outdone, Rosie (Lorna
Pegler) leads the girls. A sexy diva
with the voice of an angel and the
looks of a supermodel, her good
intentions are consumed by the fires
of ambition. Sinjata (Pooja Shah) –
catchphrase ‘Don’t even think about
it!’ – is sizzling hot, ready to do battle
with life and to follow her dream to
become the best new DJ on the
Ibiza scene. Donna (Louise Franklin)
completes the team, a sultry authority
figure whose naive charm, ample
bosom and razor wit are the
undoing of many.
Trying to keep this chaotic lot
together are Brian (James Doherty),
Resort Manager: ‘Can’t talk…I’m
having a drama’. Sharp, quick witted
and camp as Kylie, he’s hard at work
and hard at play. Cosmic Bob
(Stephen North), the bar owner, is the
philosophical type: ‘You p**s me off –
I’ll kick your face in. That’s karma,
isn’t it?’ A blissed out spliff-head, he
has found spirituality and now spends
his time in search of universal truths
and changing beer barrels.
A drama for those who are mad for it,
Is Harry On The Boat? looks set to
get viewers hot under the collar when
it makes its scorching debut on Sky
One this summer.
Filming on location in Spain,
the 18x 60 series is produced by
PlanetRapido for Sky One.
Great music, great look, great buzz.
