Eds Eramiha

Actor [Ngāpuhi]

The multi-talented Edmund Eramiha (Ngāpuhi) has worked as a model, kapa haka performer, Muay Thai fighter, theatre tutor and television presenter. But since his break-out performance in Lee Tamahori movie Mahana (2016), he is probably best known as an actor. In 2021 Eramiha was nominated for an NZ TV Award for his first leading role in Vegas  as Kingi, a newly appointed gang leader, trying to move his community away from the drug trade. It marked the fourth time Eramiha has worked with director Kiel McNaughton. The pair also collaborated on film The Legend of Baron To'a and TV shows Find Me A Māori Bride and This Is Piki

These are people I look up to in the acting world, people who paved the way for young Māori to come through and give it a shot. They inspired us and encouraged us, so being able to work with them — wow. Eds Eramiha on the cast of TV series Vegas, Stuff, 8 April 2021
