Antonia Prebble

Miss Hardcastle

This is Antonia’s debut profes­sional theatre role and she is extremely excited to be tread­ing the boards once again.

Originally from Wellington, Antonia has been working as a professional actress for over twelve years. Her very first roles were in musicals and operas, most notably CARMEN (Wellington City Opera). Antonia’s debut televi­sion appearance was MIRROR MIRROR II and while still pur­suing her high-school educa­tion, she played the lead role in five series of THE TRIBE.

After graduating from school, Antonia presented the chil­dren’s show WNTV and began an English Literature degree at Victoria University. In 2005 she moved to Auckland to play Loretta West in the hit series OUTRAGEOUS FORTUNE, for which she has won a Qantas Award for Best Supporting Actress.

Antonia enjoys combining her love for travel and for acting. In 2007 she studied with Philippe Gaulier at his theatre school in Paris and the following year she attended a “Summer Acting Intensive” at the Larry Singer Studios in New York.
