Ingrid Park


Actor Ingrid Park has played evil (as a violent psychiatrist on Shortland Street), legal (as the feisty lawyer girlfriend to Jay Laga'aia's character, on Street Legal) and quirky (helping bury the body, on dead husband series Burying Brian). Raised in Palmerston North, Park studied engineering before getting her Shortland Street break in 1998. Playing dodgy doctor Mackenzie Choat, her plotlines included adultery, a problem with prescription drugs, and blowing up the clinic. In 2009 Park began five seasons on Go Girls, playing real estate agent Fran McMann. She also acted in TV series The Brokenwood Mysteries and Agent Anna.
