Best Role of All
Rotorua-born actor Cliff Curtis, 41, talks to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer about his role as flight medic Rabbit in NBC show Trauma. Curtis says it is “the most fun character” he has ever played. “He’s got endless possibility, he’s heroic, he’s a bit of a goofball, [he’s] masculine [and] a character I’ve not had the opportunity to play in film,” Curtis says. He has shocked the makers of the series shunning the use of a stunt man or special affects, including performing a medical procedure on himself while filming on a cliff-face. Executive producer Dario Scardapane described Curtis as a “super hero”. He next stars in the M. Night Shyamalan fantasy film The Last Airbender as Fire Lord Ozai. The film is due for release in 2010.
