Elisabeth Easther

Having started her professional life as an actress, playing Victoria the dinosaur in the children’s series, Johnson and Friends, Elisabeth knew, if she wanted to make a living, she’d need to find other things to do too. Consequently, she took to writing for magazines, newspapers, radio and the stage and has been doing just that, here and in the UK, for the last 18 years. Elisabeth has also worked in radio, as a tour guide in Turkey, she's been a magazine editor, a script advisor, a life guard and, occasionally still, an actress.

Elisabeth won the 2014 Adam NZ Play Award for her play Seed.
