Geraldine Brophy describes herself as a character actress, but her television and film roles have been very memorable ones. She played the lovable Moira Crombie in Shortland Street for four years, before moving on to roles in Serial Killers, The Insiders Guide to Love, and Outrageous Fortune. One of her favourite roles was playing the control freak bureaucrat Marion in Seven Periods with Mr Gormsby. More recently Brophy danced up a storm on Dancing with the Stars, and had a small but memorable part in Peter Jackson’s remake of King Kong. In 2008, she received a NZ Film and TV Award for best actress for her lead role in the feel-good feature film Second-Hand Wedding.

In this ScreenTalk, Brophy talks about:

  • Having a wonderful time on Shortland Street playing the lovable Moira
  • Playing a 'plumptious woman with a rampant sexuality' in Seven Periods with Mr Gormsby
  • The joy of performing on Dancing with the Stars even though she knew she’d never win
  • Working with Peter Jackson on King Kong
  • Working with director Paul Murphy on Second-Hand Wedding
  • How her many acting roles have changed her life
