Mark Hadlow

Sir Bruce Warner and Dr Michael McKenna

Mark Hadlow (ONZM) is one of New Zealand’s best-known actors. He is driven by a passion for performance and has performed in countless theatre shows throughout New Zealand. Mark has appeared in dozens of films and several television series and commercials, and has completed radio voice-overs in the thousands. He has directed many plays throughout New Zealand, some independent productions and some for The Court Theatre in Christchurch and Fortune Theatre in Dunedin. MAMIL, written by his mate Greg Cooper, has drawn a combined audience of almost 50,000 to date and still revels in the art of the one-man show. Acting, performing or entertaining people on a live stage is something he is utterly passionate about. Mark has played many roles in Peter Jackson films, including

The Hobbit trilogy, Meet the Feebles, King Kong and soon-to-be-released Mortal Engines. Being in the ASB season of Shortland Street The Musical with such a fabulous bunch of talented actors and production team makes being in the Auckland Theatre Company, as always, a pleasure.
