Carmel McGlone


Tawa-raised Carmel McGlone drifted into acting while studying music. Since then she has performed on both sides of the Tasman, and played Aunt Daisy, Lady Macbeth, Marilyn Monroe, and a gormless male in Digger and Nudger. McGlone’s first sizable screen role was an “enormously enjoyable” six months on 80s TV series Marching Girls. More recently she appeared in web hit Reservoir Hill, and starred in Hook, Line and Sinker.

It was very unusual for New Zealand television ... TVNZ were a bit scared of it. I think they thought it might leap out of the set and bite them. But it was just a nice lovely series. Carmel McGlone on The Marching Girls, in a 1990 interview
