Tainui Tukiwaho

With 12 films, shorts and TV shows under his belt (including hosting Māori Television talk show O Whakaaro), in 2010 Tainui Tukiwaho scored his biggest role to date: starring as legendary entertainer Billy T James in telemovie Billy. He also played a role in another based-on-a-true-story tele-film, Tangiwai. Fluent in te reo, the 2001 Unitec graduate is one of the team behind Auckland’s Smackbang Theatre.

My understanding is that at one point he was filming during the day and doing live gigs at night. I just don't know how he did it ... I only pretended to do it and I was exhausted!
