Actor, Director

Hamilton-born Aidee Walker was in her final year of acting studies at Unitec, when she got a part in horror film The Locals. These days Walker is a writer and director too. Her acting CV includes many memorable roles: Lee-Anne in true story telemovie Catching the Black Widow, the fiesty Draska Doslic in Outrageous Fortune, widow Kate Ryder in One Lane Bridge and her award-nominated turn in comedy film How to Meet Girls from a Distance. Walker has directed for everything from sitcom Kid Sister to Mystic and Westside, as well as writing, directing (and often acting) in a run of shorts — including 2013 award-winner Friday Tigers

She's been to five universities, was sports captain at her high school, has a bachelor's degree in performing arts from Unitec and has made an award-winning short film which she wrote, directed and acted in ... If this was anyone else, I expect they'd have collapsed from exhaustion, or exploded from the effort. Writer Greg Dixon in The NZ Herald, 5 October 2013
