Gaia

Keisha Castle-Hughes

Gaia is a hospital nurse in her first year after training and she's also Axl and Zeb's flatmate – which is a good thing for the boys because at least now there's at least one person in the apartment who's got their act together. Gaia's mother died when she was born, and Gaia was brought up on Waiheke Island by her solo father Bryn, who is an organic vegetable grower, nudist and who discovered, in mid-life, that he was gay. Gaia is known for her common sense.
