Profile image for Ian Mune

Ian Mune

Actor, Writer, Director

Quite aside from being a talented and prolific actor, Ian Mune has made behind the scenes contributions to many New Zealand screen landmarks. Mune's writing career ranges from some of New Zealand's earliest television series to Goodbye Pork Pie. His work as director includes classics Came a Hot Friday and The End of the Golden Weather, and the hit sequel to Once Were Warriors.

I get very envious of the people who can just go on churning things out, but at the same time, I assiduously avoid getting into that situation. Ian Mune in a Listener interview, 17 April 1976
