Todd Emerson


Since winning his first lead role on stage at age 11, Todd Emerson has built a lengthy CV on stage and screen. In 2015 he joined the main cast on Westside, playing career criminal Bilkey Van Heeder, and starred as a man who enters a parallel world in Sally Tran’s feature film Timeslow. Emerson also played Peter Hudson in stage play Hudson & Halls Live, which recreates a TV show by the beloved chefs.

I was actually shooting Westside at the same time as performing Hudson and Halls, so I'd go from playing this super-closeted 80s dude in the day to this completely camp one at night. Todd Emerson in an NZ Herald interview, 14 June 2016
