Andrew Hawthorn

Producer, Director

After starting his career as an actor then doing eight years in the editing suite, Andrew Hawthorn has made his biggest mark in sports coverage. A child star in kidult drama Hunter's Gold, Hawthorn did time as a radio DJ and TV editor before moving into sports for TVNZ. After helming Olympics coverage and groundbreaking America's Cup coverage that was seen around the world, he joined Sky Sports in 2010.

From riding on bullock trains, hurtling down hillsides, to gunfights and horsegalloping chases through town at a breakneck speed, the show had everything a kid would want to watch, let alone be a part of. Andrew Hawthorn recalls acting on Hunter’s Gold
