Gary Stalker

Actor, Producer

Gary Stalker has performed many roles in his screen career, but is most prolifically an actor and producer. Stalker first appeared on New Zealand screens in the 1980s; he was a drunkard who threatens the heroine in Mr Wrong, and played writer Frank Sargeson in an episode of Epitaph. He also has producing, editing and camera credits under his belt including producing and co-directing 1997 drag queen documentary Screen Queen in Australia. Stalker was a partner at Auckland's Afterglow Films. The post-production house produced graphics, opening sequences for TV shows, and commercials. Stalker is also an established playwright. 

Ghost Trees is a masterful piece of storytelling essentially about grief and loss. But rather than being mawkishly sentimental, in the hands of the talented and intelligent Gary Stalker, it is a generous invitation to us all to consider our own sense of being and our connection to the natural world.
