The hit Disney Channel show followed three teenagers, Emma, Rikki and Cleo, who turned into mermaids pretty much anytime they came into contact with water.

Not only was H20 arguably one of the best childhood shows, it also helped launch the careers of Aussie homegrown actors like Phoebe Tonkin and Angus McLaren.

Phoebe Tonkin was just 15 when she was cast as Cleo Sertori in H20. Since then, the now 31-year-old model and actress has continued to find fame both in Australia and overseas. 

After the show, Tonkin reunited with her on-screen boyfriend Angus McLaren (who played Lewis) during a brief appearance in Packed to the Rafters.

In 2010, she landed a role in Home and Away and the Aussie film Tomorrow, When the War Began. 

The next year she moved to LA where she continued acting and became a Chanel brand ambassador. In 2012, Tonkin scored the role of Hayley Marshall in The Vampire Diaries and The Originals alongside fellow mermaid Claire Holt (who played Emma). 

Most recently, the Sydney born actress starred in Stan's drama series Bloom, which McLaren also appeared on. Speaking to Popsugar, Tonkin explained she was interested in the show as soon as she read the script.  

"I got sent the script and read the first one and sent an email to my agent and was like, 'I would do this in 10 seconds, get me that job!'" she told the publication. 

"Even in the first few pages of reading it, I realised it was very unique for Australia and will make a big impression that Australia is a big rebab.netpetitor to the rest of the world."

Outside of acting, Tonkin is dating Phantom Planet singer Alex Greenwald, who she shared a cute photo with on Instagram earlier this year.
