As the country reels from the quake overnight, Kiwi stars at home and abroad have checked in on Twitter to send their love home.

Soon after the 7.5 quake hit north Canterbury just after midnight, New Zealand's biggest stars immediately sent their best wishes, with some even struggling to contact their own families.

Lorde, who is currently working on her album in the US, wrote on Twitter that Kiwis are "made of tough stuff" and encouraged her fans to help each other out.

Β While Xena and Ash vs Evil Dead star, Lucy Lawless tried to look on the bright side after the recent events of the past week:

She wasn't the only one to link the quake back to last week's events with Donald Trump becoming President-Elect in the US election.

Tickled director David Farrier acknowledged that it has been a tough time all around, and encouraged kindness.

Other stars shared their own accounts of feeling the quake, including Anika Moa who was woken by the quake and called it "freaking scary".

And songstress Brooke Fraser was upset still trying to get in touch with her family, though she later tweeted she'd heard they were safe and hoped everyone else was able to get similar reports.

Here are some more tweets from Kiwi celebs passing on their love to anyone who might be struggling today:
