Fraser Brown

Actor, Producer

Since studying acting and commerce, Fraser Brown has worked on both sides of the camera. The 2001 Toi Whakaari graduate has portrayed paranoid lawyers (Shortland Street), cynical DJs (The Insiders Guide to Happiness), and cops (Harry). In 2014 he starred in Moa-nominated TV movie Field Punishment No. 1 as Archibald Baxter, a pacifist who was sent to the front lines during WWl. In real life, Brown has a growing CV as a producer. He has worked both with producer Matthew Metcalfe (2017 motor racing documentary McLaren) and through his own production company, FB Pictures (rich meets poor drama Orphans & Kingdoms).
