Oliver Driver

The role is a world away for the actor who is probably best known to New Zealand audiences as Nurse Mike Galloway in the television series Shortland Street and was also recently seen as the child-like Jackson in the feature film Magik and Rose. SNAKESKIN Writer/Director Gillian Ashurst had previously cast him in her successful short film Venus Blue.

Driver is no stranger to accolades. He received the 1997 Best Actor award at the New Zealand Film & Television Awards for his role in City Life and won Best Theatresports Actor the previous year, for the third consecutive time.

His previous film experience includes Harry Sinclair's award-winning feature film Topless Women Talk About Their Lives and the short films C90; I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry, directed by Michael Hurst; Britta McVeigh's Thinking About Sleep and Trapped in the Palms, which he also wrote and co-directed.
