Jay Saussey

Actor

Jay Saussey, the daughter of a drama teacher, started her career as one of the young stars of Deepwater Haven in 1993, after previously playing a small role in Vincent Ward film The Navigator. Deepwater Haven saw Saussey play one of the two children of tugboat skipper Jack Wilson, played by Australian actor Vince Martin. The role earned her Best Juvenile Performer at the NZ Film and TV Awards. Since then, Saussey's had an active film and television career, appearing in everything from Hercules and Shortland Street (she played nurse Tamsin Yates for two years), to Outrageous Fortune and Fracture.

I’m very lucky to have been involved in the New Zealand film and television industry since a young age, and worked with some incredible people over the years. May there be many more years ahead. Jay Saussey
