Rob Kipa Williams reveals new drama for Ari when the soap returns in the New Year and explains why there might be a proposal on the cards for Ari and Mac!
Rob Kipa-Williams has had a big year since joining Home and Away as ex-con Ari Parata.
From a hospital siege to nearly splitting up Marilyn and John (before they really DID split up) he’s also had an almost love triangle with bar owner Mackenzie Booth and his own brother Tane Parata!
Rob announced Ari’s future with Mackenzie to whatsontv.co.uk with the soap set to take an extended Christmas break in the UK very soon and teased a major storyline in the offing …
“I loved my first year so much. I’ve been here for fourteen or 15 months,’ Rob commented.
Ari came in with a hothead, and he softened a little and proved that he could be romantic.
“Some more surprises are coming really soon. One of my busiest times at the show ever. There’s still more coming up if you think I’ve been busy now! Rob wouldn’t let you know exactly what’s on the cards, but he did say that it’s going to change Ari’s life …
“Let’s just say that he’s going to face one of the hardest choices he’s ever had to make,” he teased.
Recently, after Mac’s head was turned by Ari’s younger brother Tane, Ari and Mac’s blossoming relationship was almost nipped in the bud.
When Ari took a break to give Mac room from the Bay, he came back needing a decision. And she, fortunately, chose him.
‘The attraction of Mac to Tane was more of an infatuation,’ Rob explained.
“He’s the ‘bad boy’ mark.
“In the past, she had these kinds of relationships, but she decides that she needs a good kind of guy with some principles and values.”
They’re back on track now. Might there be a plan in the offing?
“It’s on the cards, considering the pace of the partnership! “Rob chuckled.
He does not, to Ari’s credit, play life in half. And I don’t think the Mac is going to be lured away by Tane.
With Tane getting involved in some very dodgy dealing and their nephew Nikau pondering a move to New Zealand to be with mum Gemma Parata, here’s hoping Ari can find some happiness with Mac. Although, this is Summer Bay!
