Alison Bruce

Actor

With a CV that includes everything from judges to Amazon queens, Alison Bruce has often been cast as the strong unsmiling type. Yet two of her biggest screen roles completely break that mould: the fraudulent but well-meaning fortune teller in 2001 feature Magik and Rose, and the eccentric mother in award-winning series Being Eve.

[Bruce] has long been one of the country's most technically gifted — and underused — actors. She has a face the camera loves and which, in this role, exudes exactly the required mix of warmth and pain. NZ Herald critic Peter Calder, reviewing Magik and Rose (July 2000).
