Glenis Levestam


Veteran actor Glenis Levestam began her screen career with the first drama written for local television: she had a small role in 1963 teleplay All Earth to Love. Levestam is better remembered for her role as Dot Paget, across 650 episodes of pioneering soap opera Close to Home. She played bossy sister to Maisie in 1988 TV comedy Bert and Maisie, narrated on series Pioneer Women, and has also appeared on TV's Country GP and big screen comedy Black Sheep.

In real life Glenis is an apparently merry and flexible woman whose sparkling sense of humour has been in no way dashed by the vicissitudes of the actor's life. New Zealand Woman's Weekly article, 13 June 1988, page 24
