David Weatherley


Born and educated in England, David Weatherley served in the Canadian Army before arriving in New Zealand in 1961. His long theatre career includes lead roles in everything from Henry V to Evita. He often acted onstage alongside Ian Mune, who directed Weatherley in two men in a boat tale A Great Day (part of TV's Winners and Losers). Weatherley’s many screen credits include roles in shows from Under The Mountain (as one of the aliens) to early drama series Spotlight, Shortland Street to Hounds, and Grampire to Power Rangers. In 2006 he won an award for his portrayal of a dementia sufferer in short film Together.  

...tall and broad-shouldered with wavy blonde hair, a clear accent, and a charm enhanced by a slightly smashed-up looking face, whether by motorcycle or genetic collision I am not sure. Director Ian Mune on casting David Weatherley in A Great Day, in 2010 book Mune - An Autobiography, pg 172
