Set in Sydney’s inner west, Bump follows overachieving year 11 student Oly (Nathalie Morris) when she suddenly discovers she’s pregnant, goes into labour at school and has to raise a child while doing her trials and HSC.
To make things even more confusing, Oly soon discovers that the father isn’t her boyfriend but another boy from school, Santiago (Carlos Sanson Jr.) who she had a one-night stand with. Her mother, Ange (Claudia Karvan) is the head of English and just might be secretly in love with the Chilean-born PE teacher at school, Matias Hernandez (Ricardo Scheihing Vasquez)… Aka Santiago’s dad 😬.
From that premise alone, you can already expect to buckle up for a bumpy ride of relationship and baby drama, full of a diverse range of Australian characters. But, Bump also raises an important issue with stories about teenage mums: whenever we talk about teenage pregnancy, we always put blame and importance on the mum. The father of the child gets off scot-free. Without spoiling the plot, Bump puts the responsibility of raising the child equally on Santiago, the baby's father, and we love that.
Anyway, if you wanna stop here and quickly binge the first ten eps, go on, that’s perfectly valid. Okay, you all caught up now? Great, so here’s everything you need to know about the cast of Stan’s Bump and where you can find them on Instagram.
