Actor Dean O’Gorman won his first lead role in a feature film in Bonjour Timothy at the age of 17. Soon after he starred in Shortland Street, then went on to appear in a long list of international and local TV dramas including Young Hercules, McLeod’s Daughters and The Almighty Johnsons.

In this ScreenTalk, O’Gorman talks about:

  • Getting the lead role in Bonjour Timothy at just 17
  • Being at the mercy of the writers on Shortland Street
  • Learning to play with swords on the set of Xena
  • A physically demanding role on Young Hercules
  • Playing a gay character in the film When Love Comes
  • Being a ‘man women would like to see’ on McLeod’s Daughters
  • A small but satisfying role in Serial Killers
  • Learning to play cricket with his left hand for Tangiwai: A Love Story
  • Being more conservative in real life than his character in The Almighty Johnsons
