Fasitua Amosa

Actor

The son of a Canterbury Presbyterian minister, Amosa moved to Auckland as a teen. He got early acting experience via drama productions at Sunday school and Kelston Boys' High, before formal training at Unitec. In 2004 Amosa won a plum role as a ghost (and narrator) on TV's Insiders Guide to Happiness. He has since acted on Harry and Go Girls. Amosa was on the creative team of web series satire Auckland Daze (he played an unfunny comedian); and Daryl - An Outward Bound Story. He was one of the suspects on web whodunnit Alibi. The Auckland theatre actor has also voiced many adverts and documentaries.

For a lot of Pacific Islanders, Sunday school is their first drama school. White Sunday is very competitive. Each family is invited to do their own items; they might do a speech and a skit and a song ... it's high stakes stuff. If you stuff up, a jandal will literally be thrown at you. I had the lead role in my high school show. It was terrible but a good excuse to hang out with girls. NZ Herald interview with Fasitua Amosa, 17 May 2016
