Profile image for David Fane

David Fane

Actor, Writer

Samoan-Kiwi David Fane has shown his comic touch on too many shows to name. A founding member of comedy group The Naked Samoans, he played multiple characters across five seasons of animated TV hit bro’Town. He dispensed wise words in hits Sione's Wedding and Outrageous Fortune, played serious on TV's The Market, and starred as a dodgy Pacific Island ambassador in 2008 series Diplomatic Immunity.

We've hit a nerve with the show on New Zealand television. We believe the show is a great reflection of New Zealand's multicultural environment. David Fane on animated hit bro’Town
