Jason Pirihi


Jason Pirihi was just nine-years-old when he joined the cast of TV series Sea Urchins, starring a trio of boys caught up in adventure on the water. After three series playing Hape, the most mischievous member of the trio, Pirihi won a co-starring role in chalk and cheese comedy An Age Apart, opposite then 68-year-old British import Deryck Guyler. Pirihi went on to act in Patricia Grace project Ruia Taitea.

It was choice — a wonderful experience. Jason Pirihi, remembering his time on Sea Urchins.
