Rose McIver


After appearing briefly in The Piano at age three, Rose McIver went on to star in big budget fantasy series Maddigan’s Quest while still a teen. Since then she has played one of the passengers in true life train disaster tale Tangiwai - A Love Story, and starred as a crime-solving zombie across five seasons of American series iZombie. She went on to co-star in Kiwi movie musical Daffodils and acclaimed US sitcom Ghosts.

Rosie is surprising as an actress. As funny and light-hearted as she is in person, she can summon real depth and strength to a performance as an actor. She’s able to bring true grit to a character and there aren’t many young actresses out there who can do that. Lovely Bones director Peter Jackson in The NZ Herald, 17 August 2010
