Mike Wesley-Smith

Actor, Reporter

Sitting bored in the car while his sister auditioned for The Legend of William Tell, Michael Wesley-Smith ventured inside and stumbled into a professional acting career. Discovered by the show’s casting director, he went on to appear in all five seasons of hit The Tribe. He also starred as the newest student at Atlantis High, another show made by company Cloud 9. Later, after completing a law degree in Otago and studying at Christchurch's NZ Broadcasting School, Wesley-Smith became a reporter for Three, and has worked on Campbell Live, Story and Newshub Nation. He has also reported for Sky and ESPN.

I am consistently amazed at the level of loyalty and interest in the show... Michael Wesley-Smith on the loyalty of The Tribe's fanbase, during a Facebook chat, 28 August 2011
