Wesley Dowdell

Actor

Wesley Dowdell auditioned for his first play in an attempt to get out of a maths class at Onehunga High School. It was love. At 17 the “born Westie” began the first of many roles with Auckland’s Massive Theatre Company. In 2007, a guest turn playing a gormless tow truck driver on Outrageous Fortune blossomed into an ongoing role. In 2014 he got behind the drumkit  — playing Knuckles in comedy series Coverband.

It's quite fun playing an egg. Wesley Dowdell on his role in Outrageous Fortune, on radio station The Rock, 17 June 2009
