Rawiri Jobe

Actor [Ngāti Tamaterā, Ngāti Huia, Ngāti Raukawa]

Actor Rawiri Jobe got his big break when a Wellington director scouted him performing in a Victoria University production of Twelfth Night. After extensive international stage work, he landed a TV role in 2014 as Azza, the laidback flatmate of the title character on Step Dave. Jobe played plumber Kahu Taylor on multiple seasons of The Brokenwood Mysteries, before joining the cast of Shortland Street in 2019 as paramedic Eddie Adams, who gets in gang trouble and later fathers a child. Jobe is also a recurring character on Lucy Lawless detective show My Life Is Murder. In 2022 he co-directed award-winning web comedy Self Help. 

Someone once told me that the job of an actor is what you do in-between jobs. So it's being ready for auditions, staying fit, going to the dentist, getting your hair cut, having a shave. Rawiri Jobe on being prepared, The Bay of Plenty Times, 17 November 2018
