Jeffrey Thomas

Actor, Writer

Jeffrey Thomas was born in Wales and graduated with a Master of Literature from Oxford University. Since arriving in Wellington in 1976, his televison credits have ranged from Close To Home and Gloss, to Mercy Peak and cop dramas Shark in the Park and The Gulf. In the 1980s he starred in a Welsh language drama series Bowen. An award-winning playwright, he has also acted on the big screen and the stage.

For years I thought acting was an inferior profession — the noble calling was obviously writing. But I’ve got to love acting — it’s a really interesting discipline. The combination is perfect. You act with other people and then go off and write on your own. Jeffrey Thomas, in a 6 May 1989 Listener interview
