Fiona has worked in the performing arts for 30 years. Starting off she was a passionate writer and performer within live comedy shows such as A Girls Gotta Eat, The Barb Dwyer Show and I'm Gonna Marry Marvin. Over the last ten years she has had roles on several TV shows including Brokenwood Mysteries, Supercity, Terry Teo and Shortland St. Diversifying as actors do, she also spent over ten years working as a casting director mainly on TV commercials as well as some drama and cast the movie Broken English. Having also appeared in several TV commercials as an actress, Fiona brings a wide-ranging view of the acting profession to her classes. Her aim is to help students gain both knowledge and the confidence to help them tailor their performances to best suit screen acting and her classes are a mixture of techniques aimed at this outcome.
