Peter Andrikidis is one of Australia's most respected directors. The Straits marks the third series where he has worked with rising talent Aaron Fa.Aoso, and the first to be based on aspects of his life.

.He.s had a pretty hard life . he.s got a lot to say,. Andrikidis says, who first worked with Fa'Aoso on crime series East West 101 and the soon-to-be released bikie telemovie Brothers in Arms.

"Aaron.s grown so much from East West one to East West three . he.s just learnt so much. He.s like a sponge and he just keeps getting better and better. Certainly, with this character [Noel Montebello] there.s a balance of humour and also, he has a heavy touch as well, so getting the tone of the show right was the big thing with all that cast, so it.s not corny stuff and it still has dramatic levels. »
