The ASB season of Under the Mountain will be not only Simon Mead’s Auckland Theatre Company debut but his first professional theatre experience. Before graduating from The Actors’ Program in 2016, Simon appeared on television series Nothing Trivial, Hillary and The Cul de Sac. His most recent role was in the TVNZ telefeature Why Does Love? playing Harry Harallambi, the drummer of the iconic New Zealand band, Dance Exponents. Simon is very much looking forward to working with this fabulous cast on a fun, adventure-packed New Zealand story and knows it will be the best introduction to live performance outside of drama school that he could have.
