Cast[edit]

Humans[edit]

  • Sophie Stuckey as Summer Farley - The main character. Smart, cute and witty, Summer is really nice and one of the two humans attending her school. She has two best friends, Heidi and Bobby; even if Bobby is in love with her, she considers him just a friend. She is trying to fit in and she has lots of dates.
  • Eros Vlahos as Jake Farley - Summer's younger brother.
  • Richard Lumsden as Dr Mike Farley - Summer's dad.

Monsters[edit]

  • Amy Wren as Heidi - Summer's girl best friend, she's a zombie. She's nice but isn't afraid to say what she thinks. She wears wacky neon clothes. She has proven to be a good friend, but a bit of a show off like when she tried to take Antonio off of Summer.
  • Kane Ricca as Bobby - Sweet, funny, he's a werewolf. He has a huge crush on Summer and is her boy best friend. He doesn't like when Summer dates other guys.
  • Dan Black as Rolf - a werewolf, he's Serena's boyfriend. Hot, but unusually quiet, his breath apparently stinks.
  • Charlie Jordan Evans as Serena - Beautiful, mysterious but very mean, she's a vampire. She makes sure to make Summers life a misery, however she has been a tad kind to Summer in episode Banned so Summer could help her. She seems to be friendly at times; yet she gets jealous of other girls around Rolf.
  • Andrew Harrison as Dr Tempest - Principal of Darkness and Head of English, he's a teacher at Stoker High. He's a vampire.

Others[edit]

  • Lee Simmonds as Bolt - a Frankenstein monster, he's Jake's best friend.
  • Phillipa Peak as Magda - Summer and her dad Mike Farley's housekeeper, apparently human but there are suggestions there is more to her than meets the eye. She has a crush on Mike Farley.
