Jarred Blakiston


Jarred Blakiston is a 2016 graduate of The Actors' Program, but began his professional career many years earlier, aged 12, with a role on New Zealand’s long-running soap opera Shortland Street. Since then, he has appeared on screen internationally in shows such as Power Rangers, The New Legends of Monkey, The Shannara Chronicles and, most recently, Amazon Prime’s The Wilds. Closer to home, he has appeared in Ablaze, The Gulf and When We Go To War. The Haka Party Incident marks Jarred's professional theatre debut after last appearing on stage in his graduation showcase Vernon God Little at the Basement Theatre, and he is very excited to be collaborating with the amazing team of creatives on this unique and challenging work.
