Joe Naufahu


Joe Naufahu turned to acting when a promising rugby career was cut short by a knee injury. He’s appeared on both the television screen and the big screen, including Go Girls, global hit Game of Thrones, and a critically praised part in movie The Last Saint. His previous sporting career has proven handy too, with a number of turns playing a professional sportsman  including as two past All Blacks.

I got into acting because my passion for rugby was taken away from me, and I found it again with acting. Joe Naufahu in an interview with Stuff, 30 June 2020
