Haanz Fa'avae-Jackson

Puppeteer

Since graduating from PIPA (Pacific Institute of Performing Arts) in 2014, Haanz Fa’avae- Jackson has had an explosive introduction into
both the screen and theatre scene. The young actor has been working alongside many well established creatives such as Victor Rodger,
Fasitua Amosa and Rachel House. Over the years, Haanz has performed with Fresh (TVNZ), as well as a few community shows such as Meet
the Fakas and The Girl from Niue Island. For Auckland Theatre Company, he has performed in The Eel & Sina and Inky Pinky Ponky. Haanz
has found his feet in the world of film and screen, featuring in commercials, short films, and tele-feature In Dark Places based on the book about Teina Pora. His biggest role to date is the feature film Hibiscus and Ruthless, in which he plays the pseudo intellectual Stephen Kalahi. Haanz continues to find and reach for new heights with his recently found passion for acting, hoping to inspire other young fathers who wish to pursue their dreams.
