Kevin J Wilson

Actor

Kevin J Wilson specialises in playing no-nonsense Kiwi blokes. Brought up partly in a house in the bush, Wilson began his long acting career at Auckland University. Since his TV debut in Pukemanu he has acted in almost every genre, and starred in movies Chunuk Bair and Pictures (as photographer Alfred Burton), and police series Shark in the Park. Wilson also initiated 1984 movie Wild Horses, and has directed several shorts. 

It wasn’t until Pukemanu that Tony Isaac and Murray Reece decided they wanted actors to be New Zealanders [with NZ accents] ... up until then I used to have this beautiful Oxford accent, and I had to get rid of it. Kevin J Wilson, in an October 1990 Listener interview
