Brooke Williams

Actor

Christchurch-raised Brooke Williams took her first acting lessons at age four. Since graduating from drama school Toi Whakaari in 2004, she has won theatre awards for starring in Romeo and Juliet, and contributed a trio of memorable roles on New Zealand television: as Van's Russian bride on Outrageous Fortune, depressed Norse goddess Eva on The Almighty Johnsons, and well meaning PA Lana Jacobs on Shortland Street. After Australian miniseries Anzac Girls, Williams headed to North America in 2016 for time travel show 12 Monkeys, then played the brutal, "out of control" Snowflake on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

I get so biased. I read scripts and as soon as I read my character, if they do something bad I immediately justify where it's come from and why. I adore them and feel quite protective of the characters I play. Brooke Williams in The Dominion Post, 9 August 2011
