Esther Stephens


Having grown up in a musical family, Esther Stephens found it hard to decide between music or acting. So she did both. After training in performing and screen arts, she won an ongoing role as fashionista Olivia Duff in Go Girls. Since then, Stephens has had major parts in WWI drama When We Go to War and Westside. On stage, she won acclaim as suffragette Kate Sheppard in musical That Bloody Woman.

I think my priorities have changed drastically since I discovered this love of screen acting, and that really wasn't something I ever anticipated. So, from here, anything is a bonus really. Esther Stephens, in a 25 April 2015 NZ Herald interview
