Profile image for Ray Woolf

Ray Woolf

Actor, Performer

Ray Woolf’s career as a performer spans from rock’n’roll to jazz, including touring shows of The Rocky Horror Picture Show and The Sound of Music. Born in England, but New Zealand-based since the early 60s, Woolf’s television work includes singing, acting, and hosting his own talk show. He was New Zealand Entertainer of the Year in 1975.

I don't think I could have survived on just being a singer, or just being an actor, or just being an MC. You have to kind of mix it all up. Ray Woolf in a November 2008 radio interview.
