ABOUT THE CHARACTER
SENIOR CONSTABLE STELLA DAGOSTINO
PLAYED BY NICOLE DA SILVA
Stella Dagostino, 26, Senior Constable
Stella has spunk. And lots of it. Whether she’s in a crisis situation with Tactical Response, or just at a party where the drinking games are in full swing, you know that Stella will be in it to win it.
This season, it seems her relationship with Michael has cooled right down as Stella meets a new woman, Cleo, in the most unlikely of circumstances. She seems a most welcome distraction and on the surface they seem to be good influences on each other.
Just because Michael isn’t out of sight, doesn’t mean he’s out of mind. An unexpected event, midway through this season, will jolt Stella into realising how much he really means to her.
