Wesley Dowdell


Wesley’s first introduction to live theatre was at the age of 14 when he was taken along to see Jesus Christ Superstar at the Aotea Centre. From then on in he became fascinated with performing. While at school, he was picked up by Auckland-based Massive Company, whom he credits with his early acting training and developing his love for performing. His first production with Auckland Theatre Company was the 2014 season of Once On Chunuk Bair. His most recent theatre credits include The Biggest, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and Daffodils. Wesley is most known for his role as Aaron Spiller on Outrageous Fortune, but other TV and film credits include The Worlds Fastest Indian, Lovebirds, Coverband, Hillary and Funny Girls. Yet to be released TV and film credits are Roman Empire 2 for Netflix and Kiwi Christmas, set to hit theatres in December. Wesley’s other passion is music, and he can be seen playing in his duo group Jez and Wez.
