Geraldine Brophy


Geraldine Brophy is one of our most loved and recognisable actors. She has a swag of awards for her work, which — she half-jokes — come in handy as doorstops. After beginning her screen career with walk-on parts in McPhail and Gadsby, she went on to iconic titles like Shortland Street and Second-Hand Wedding. Brophy has gone on to a second act in her career, writing for the theatre.

Brophy is the secret of this film's success. Her Jill is a rare combination of great dignity and impeccable comic timing; the best single performance I've seen in a New Zealand film for years. Graeme Tuckett, reviewing Second-Hand Wedding in the Dominion Post
