Castle-Hughes has been on a press junket for the show and discussed her teen stardom and Oscar nomination for Whale Rider and becoming a teen mum on Entertainment Tonight.

When asked about the Oscar night, Castle-Hughes replied "I remember being really hungry, so I remember trying to always sneak little craisins in between shots". Keisha was also questioned about becoming a teen mom - "I was really lucky with incredible family support around me. I come from a very big family as well so, one more in this big tribe that we already had, so it's been a wild ride."



Over the weekend Castle-Hughes took some time out on the water on ex-pat Phil Somerville’s boat, joined by a large crew including Tickled director, David Farrier and fellow Kiwi Fleur Saville.
