All-rounder Aidee Walker played in a band that won the 1998 Smokefree Rockquest. In her final year of acting studies at Unitec, Walker was cast in film The Locals. Following an extended, on-off role on Outrageous Fortune — as the ballsy Draska Doslic — she was award-nominated for How to Meet Girls from a Distance. Walker-directed short film Friday Tigers won two gongs at the 2013 NZ International Film Festival.

She's played rep hockey and studied Māori. She plays guitar. She has directed three music videos for her friend, singer Anna Coddington ... She has lived in California, London, Spain and Hamilton ... If this was anyone else, I expect they'd have collapsed from exhaustion, or exploded from the effort. Greg Dixon in the NZ Herald, 5 October 2013

2014 - 2015, As: Jen, Writer - Television

Twenty-four year-old barman Dave finds his life turned upside down when he meets the girl of his dreams — Cara, 14 years his senior, and the owner of three kids. Over two seasons, the light-hearted drama explored whether their live-in relationship could survive the weight of low expectations, and her unruly family. Created by Kate McDermott (This is Her), Step Dave starred Swedish emigre Sia Trokenheim (2014 film Everything we Loved) and Brit born Jono Kenyon. Interest in the format encompassed the Ukraine — which remade the show in 2016 — France, Hungary and Greece.

After her husband is jailed, matriarch Cheryl West (Robyn Malcolm) decides the time has come to set her family on the straight and narrow. But can the Wests change old habits? So begins the six-series long saga of the Westie dynasty. Hugely popular at home (beloved by public, critics and awards-nights alike), and imitated overseas, Outrageous Fortune has been a flag-bearer for TV3 and contemporary NZ telly drama; the series proved — in all its grow-your-own glory — that genre TV in NZ could be so much more than overseas stories pasted to a local setting.
