  • How he landed his first TV role on Skitz
  • What it was like acting with his mates on The Semisis
  • How his character’s name came about in Tongan Ninja,
  • Behind-the-scenes observations from The Strip
  • How bro’Town began, and the important messages behind some of the silliness
  • The joys of playing Falani in Outrageous Fortune
  • Hilarious behind-the-scenes details from Eagle vs Shark
  • How performances were worked up in Radiradirah
  • An insight into feature film Love Birds
