ScreenTalk Short: Elizabeth McRae

Interview – 2018

Actor Elizabeth McRae is probably best known as Marj the receptionist on Shortland Street. Since starting her screen career in the 1970s on shows like The Games Affair, she has acted in everything from anthology show About Face to movie Rest for the Wicked. In this ScreenTalk Short, McRae talks about a sweaty day on The Games Affair, being told Shortland Street was a bad idea, getting too close to a bull on movie Jubilee, and changes she has seen in her time as an actor.
