Jodie Rimmer

Actor

Born and bred Aucklander Jodie Rimmer has been acting since she was a child she got her start in 1990s horse dramas Rogue Stallion and The New Adventures of Black Beauty. Since then her screen resume has displayed her versatility: from starring as a sex worker in her light-hearted debut feature I’ll Make You Happy, to playing real-life journalist Donna Chisholm (Until Proven Innocent), a drug smuggler (Shortland Street), a hard-partying lawyer (The Strip), and an award-winning turn as ex-flame to the main character in In My Father’s Den. In the 2020s Rimmer was seen in Netflix series Sweet Tooth, and Kiwi comedy Nude Tuesday

Brad (McGann) created a script that was so dense and so textured, so really as an actor it was all kind of there. It was brimming, the grief and the pain ... that character will always be special for me. I loved playing her. Jodie Rimmer on In My Father's Den, during an interview for TV show Good Morning
