Drama students enjoyed hearing from Hollywood/New Zealand actor, and ex-Head Boy, Tim Foley.

He played Richie McCaw in The Kick, (a 2014 TV film) which focussed on the Rugby World Cup in 2011 and screened on television in August.

Recently Tim has worked on the Hollywood film, Jack the Giant Slayer, as well as NZ's Blue Rose, Nothing Trivial, and Shortland Street for three years.

Tim was back in Dunedin for a weekend as part of the Allen Hall centennial celebrations, as he studied Drama at Otago University, before studying at Toi Whakaari/NZ Drama school.

Tim appreciated all the opportunities and encouragement he received at Logan Park, and fell in love with acting after travelling with One Act Play groups in Year 11. It was then he decided he wanted to be a professional actor.
