Danielle Mason


Danielle Mason graduated from drama school Toi Whakaari in 2002. Two years later she won Chapman Tripp theatre awards for Best Female Newcomer and Outstanding Performance, and starred in low budget movie Futile Attraction, a satire of reality TV shows. In 2006, Mason featured in horror comedy Black Sheep. This time she played Experience, an animal rights activist fighting off a farm full of mutant sheep. Mason went on to play the reluctant object of an ageing DJ's affections in web series High Road. In family drama Wilde Ride, she is a dirt bike enthusiast looking after her sister's daughter following a tragedy.

All the characters embark on this huge journey through a slightly larger than life New Zealand landscape. And at every turn we encounter monsters. Seeing people with a set way of doing things totally out of their depth — as horrible as it sounds, there’s something very funny about it. Danielle Mason in the press kit for 2007 movie Black Sheep
