Fern Sutherland


Fern Sutherland first won TV exposure over three seasons of The Almighty Johnsons, playing long-suffering PA to demi-god Dean O’Gorman — and romantic interest of a man who almost froze her to death when they got intimate. The Unitec acting graduate was award-nominated for the part. She followed it with a plum role in mini-series The Brokenwood Mysteries, as a sharp but formal small-town detective.

All the cops we talked to all had the blackest sense of humour. They would find the funny side, almost as a coping mechanism. And I think that comes through in the show. Fern Sutherland on researching her role on The Brokenwood Mysteries, NZ Herald, September 2014
