Angus McLaren is an australian actor. He is best known for playing Lewis McCartney on H2O: Just Add Water.

Personal life

Angus grew up on a dairy farm near Leongatha, Victoria. It has been said he is a keen sportsman, excelling at cricket, swimming and AFL football and used to date H2O co-star Indiana Evans between 2006 and 2012.

Angus McLaren and Jamie Timony, along with Will Shepherd, and Remy Hii (who also appeared as member of the Band in Season 3 of H2O: Just Add Water) are in a band called "Rapids".


McLaren got his first role as Jason Cassidy in the Australian TV series Something in the Air when he was only 12 years old. Some sources say he got this role with no prior experience and everything was due to an impressive audition. Others say he has appeared in a number of amateur productions for the Leongatha Lyric Theatre, as well as school productions before he made the leap to professional work. Several recurring roles followed.

Then, in 2004, Angus was cast as Degenhardt Bell for the series Silversun which was his first main role. He then made a few more appearances and finally landed on the set of H2O: Just Add Water as Lewis McCartney. While still starring in H2O, Angus also takes part in Packed to the Rafters as Nathan.
