Tina Grenville


After winning awards for her acting at Wellington Girls' College, Tina Grenville was named 1964's Model of the Year. But it's as an actor, both in New Zealand and Australia, that she is best known. Highlights from a 14 year stint across the Tasman include Logie-winning show The Godfathers, and soap The Restless Years. Back home, she played spirited mother Val Johnstone in short-lived drama Homeward Bound, and co-hosted 80s show Good Morning. She also featured in early horror film Death Warmed Up, and black comedy Predicament. Grenville's autobiography A Life in Three Acts was published in 2012. 

The cameras in television and film give the actors a much more intimate exposure. Film work feels more like reality. Tina Grenville
