Will Hall
A schoolboy flair for drama was Christchurch actor Will Hall's first step on the road to Shortland Street - the turning point in Will Hall's life came at St Andrew's College when he was bitten by the acting bug. "It was only at St Andrew's that I realised I was any good at acting." Hall, a self-confessed member of the "cool rugby crowd", was faced with the option of accountancy classes taught by his own father or drama classes taught by the charismatic drama teacher, Rozena Hallum. Hall chose the stage. "Drama was a way of avoiding accounting." It was a decision that settled his career.

"Initially Rozena had her reservations about me and some of my mates -- the lads from the rugby team -- who took drama in the sixth form," recalls Hall.
"We started the year doing Shakespeare for our assessment. I did Shylock from The Merchant of Venice. An outside adjudicator came in and -- a surprise to everyone -- liked what I had done and gave me the top mark in the class."
Now retired, Rozena recalls the occasion well: "Will did one of Shylock's speeches in a way that was all his own. It was absolutely riveting. His father was very impressed."
Because the family were keen that Hall had a meal-ticket, he did a commerce degree in property evaluation and management at Lincoln University but the urge to act remained strong.
Will’s credits include the NZ Screen Director’s Guild Awards for ‘Best Actor in a TV Series ‘Insider’s Guide to Happiness in 2005 & the NZ Film Awards for ‘Best Supporting Actor’ in ‘Netherwood’ 2012. He has also starred in many more films and TV series including Shortland Street, Eagle vs Shark, Mt Zion, Nothing Trivial, Power Rangers & Westside.
