David de Lautour

Actor, Director

At age 18, Christchurch-born David de Lautour won a scholarship to train at New York's American Musical and Dramatic Academy. Since then De Lautour's globetrotting career has included recurring roles in New Zealand (TV's Being Eve, playing Eve's boyfriend Adam) and the US (sitcom What I Like About You, playing British boyfriend to one of the main characters). Back home, two Kiwi icons are on his resume: likeable career criminal Ted West in Westside,and All Black Stephen Donald in TV movie The Kick. De Lautour also has multiple credits as a director; in 2018 he co-created crime drama Alibi

Being able to put on the All Blacks jersey is awesome, even if it is for a film [...] And Stephen is a well-liked guy who has worked his ass off and loves New Zealand, so I draw some parallels with him. I'm a proud New Zealander, passionate rugby fan and like to work hard. You don't always get the call-up, but be prepared for when you do.
