Liz and I go way back, well almost as way back as I've been an actor in Wellington. But it feels like longer. We have played sisters once before, the very first time we met actually, at a workshop. Liz was awesome then but just wait until you see her in Life. After.
Actress - Liz Kirkman
Liz Kirkman graduated with Honours in Theatre from VUW in 2002 and has been solidly performing and teaching since. For the last three years she has been tutoring Movement, Shakespeare and Acting for Camera on the UCOL Diploma in Performing Arts. You might remember her from such shows as, Educating Rita, the touring 2 person, 50 minute versions of King Lear, Macbeth and Othello, A Bright Room Called Day (Bats) and as Kathryn Beattie in newly released NZ feature film, Eternity.
Liz says, 'Life.After attracted me for many reasons. Getting the chance to work with Anita - who I've loved working with in screen acting classes - was a great coup, but I also couldn't help but be affected by Adam's striking poster image. It was a great visual container for the work to grow inside. I was excited about working on something distinctly female and exploring that relationship, in contrast to the work being created in a male dominated industry. This has been an enlightening process exploring the universal issues of grief and loss, which interest me not only personally and as a performer, but in my other occupation as a Craniosacral Therapist.'

What can I say, Liz? I AM SO EXCITED!
