Grant Bridger

Actor, Singer

Grant Bridger did some of almost everything: he began as a radio DJ, released a handful of singles, and acted (and sang) on television, and at Auckland's Mercury Theatre. On screen, two of his biggest roles happened early. In 1976 he was a "nasty" factory worker in A Going Concern, New Zealand's second soap opera (after Close to Home). Two years later he played smooth-talking DJ Win Savage on TV's Radio Waves. Raised in Auckland and Hastings, Bridger also appeared in Sing, Gloss and in stage musicals. In 2019 he realised a long-held dream of creating one of his own, with the premiere of Petty Crime. Grant Bridger died in March 2023. 

...you can have as much natural talent in the world, and if it's not focussed and grown and nurtured, and given a direction, then you just have got a lot of potential talent... Grant Bridger on being invited to act at Auckland's Mercury Theatre, in a Radio New Zealand interview with Jim Mora, 14 November 2011
