Michael Fowler

Wellington, New Zealand

Actor, Musician, Dancer

Trained actor/musician currently working as a Bar Manager in Wellington. Have a wide range of acting experience from extra work (Lord Of The Rings, King Kong, Avatar), to short films and childrens theatre (almost two years solid of this! Wrote and directed during this time as well). Grew up as a dancer, 13 years training in Ballet and 5 years traing in Jazz and Modern. Have an active passion for music, currently play bass guitar for two covers bands who play regularly in the Wellington scene. Love any type of performance that challenges both the performer and the audience and gets the creative juices flowing.
