- Former Shortland Street star Shane Cortese is taking up real estate.
He has passed the exams to become a licensed real estate agent and has signed on with NZ Sotheby’s International Realty (NZSIR) to focus on the affluent Auckland suburbs of Takapuna and Herne Bay.
There’s no cause for fans to panic though as the move doesn’t spell the end of his acting career.
“Having a family means I can’t go off to the US or England and be in a long-running television series there. I’m also very committed to NZ drama and would very much like to remain filming here in NZ,” Cortese said.
