Ben Barrington


193 centimetre tall Ben Barrington played Olaf, a well-meaning but lazy God on TV's The Almighty Johnsons. After graduating from drama school in 2001, Barrington won a Chapman Tripp award for his stage work, and was nominated for further gongs for Insiders Guide to Happiness, as a doctor close to cracking up. After time as romantic interest on Aussie hit Offspring, he joined Shortland Street in 2015. 

The Insiders Guide to Happiness is a production that I'm still fiercely proud of to this day ... kind of a world all its own, that show. It just had this tone to it that wasn't like anything else. Ben Barrington on The Insiders Guide to Happiness
