History is made: Sparks fly when Chris Warner meets Alf Stewart (VIDEO)

What happens when you put of two of the most enduring soap opera characters together in one room? After years of wondering, we finally found out in this exclusive video. 

Shortland Street‘s Chris Warner (played by Michael Galvin) and Home and Away‘s Alf Stewart (played by Ray Meagher) are two of New Zealand’s most beloved soap opera characters, chalking up 52 years in front of the camera between them.

How do they cope? When do they get recognised? How will their characters finally die? We engineered the Batman vs. Superman of modern soaps to get all the answers:

Starrring: Michael Galvin and Ray Meagher
Directed by: José Barbosa
DOP and Sound by: Michelle Sokolich
Bad questions by: Calum Henderson and Alex Casey
