Jay Laga'aia

Actor

Auckland-born Jay Laga’aia is the proverbial man of many talents. A busy trans-Tasman career as actor/performer has seen him performing on stage (The Lion King) and screen (Street Legal, Water Rats, Star Wars).

I’ve always tried to aid myself in getting jobs by being multifunctional. If you’re from New Zealand you need many strings to your bow. Most of the Kiwis I know are triple threats – they can act, sing and dance. Jay Laga'aia
