Peta Rutter


The late Peta Rutter acted on stage and screen. On television, she joined the ensemble of 90s sketch series Away Laughing, appeared in dysfunctional family tale Home Movie, and played one of the heroes in Power Rangers: Mystic Force. In 1999 Rutter took a key role in big screen romance This is Not a Love Story, as a successful artist at a crossroads. Rutter passed away in July 2010, after being diagnosed with a brain tumor. 

With her sparkling, dancing eyes and beautiful, vibrant soul, she brought a unique blend of cool intelligence and anarchic elegance to Auckland theatre. In this age of beige, Peta was a fountain of originality. Simon Prast
