Lucy Wigmore


In 2007 Lucy Wigmore did something unusual — take over an already established role on Shortland Street. In spite of the show’s famously protective fanbase, Wigmore's portrayal of Dr Justine Jones soon became a fan favourite. Since her departure, the Toi Whaakari grad has played policewoman Lillian Armfield in Aussie drama Underbelly: Razor and taken on directing, with short films Sign Language and Stationery.

On Shortland Street you never quite know in what direction your character will be heading next, and what I like about film and theatre is that you play someone who's in a fixed story, with a beginning and an end. Lucy Wigmore in the NZ Woman's Weekly, 9 June 2008
