Hello Rose fans! Earlier today, a new interview of Rose was published on NZ Herald, as a part of a series called “Sitting Room Only”. It’s a very different and fun interview, so make sure you check it out. You can do so by clicking the still image below, and screen captures will be added to the gallery as soon as possible.
Sitting Room Only is a new interview series airing on nzherald.co.nz, directed by Hannah Marshall and produced by Rose’s bestfriend and past co-star Fleur Saville. The intimate series will feature some of New Zealand’s best-known actors and musicians talking about life in Los Angeles and their journey to success. And as one of the most talked about kiwis at the moment, of course our Rose had to be included!
Rose McIver: My early acting was ‘horrific’
iZombie star Rose McIver has been acting since the age of two – featuring in everything from Shortland Street and Power Rangers to feature films like The Piano and The Lovely Bones.
But while film-makers were quick to embrace her young talent, the 26-year-old Kiwi wasn’t so sold on her early performances.
“I was told by somebody that I was prodigious with accents and I was so good at them. I went back and watched a clip… I’m horrific. I’m terrible,” she says in the latest episode of Sitting Room Only.
The actress, who now lives in LA, says people are often quick to assume her career was driven by her parents, but nothing is further from the truth.
“My mum was really hesitant. It was never a focus in our family.
“It was like other people did tennis or singing. I was just allowed to be in a movie.”
McIver’s most recent television credits include Once Upon a Time, Masters of Sex and Play It Again, Dick.
