Profile image for Oliver Driver

Oliver Driver

Actor, Director

Oliver Driver's career has seen him fronting arts programmes and breakfast show Sunrise, and portraying everyone from villainous alien Mr Wilberforce to a sensitive sperm donor and a wacky nurse. The ex-Auckland Theatre Company artistic director has also done time with music station Alt TV, co-starred in chalk and cheese comedy Sunny Skies and directed many episodes of Shortland Street.

I think the best stories, the best plays, and the best television shows stir up a conversation, and create a debate: the kind where people go out arguing about it afterwards. Oliver Driver in The Dominion Post, 11 May 2004
