Notes

"I don't have classic good looks ... but then I'd rather play the off-centre roles. I'm quite happy playing a drug addict or the bastard in the wheelchair." – Joel Tobeck (courtesy NZ OnScreen) One of Australasia’s most widely experienced and respected actors, Joel was born in to a theatrical family, and made an early start on stage with his mother Liddy Holloway at the age of five. His stage work has ranged from Shakespeare to musical theatre. He has worked as a singer and guitarist in bands on both sides of the Tasman and his skillset embraces voice work, radio, improv, Theatresports, dance and choreography. Joel’s screen appearances have been similarly diverse. Two dozen film roles on a spectrum from whimsical comedy to intense drama and horror; and a television career that has seen him move comfortably between New Zealand, Australia and the U.S in a variety of genres. In 1997, he won Best Actor in the NZ Film & TV Awards for ‘Topless Women Talk About Their Lives’. Joel has appeared regularly in many New Zealand dramas and comedy shows, including the ‘Xena: Warrior Princess’ ‘Hercules: The Legendary Journeys’ and ‘Young Hercules’ series and more recently, "Underbelly: Land of the Long Green Cloud" and the popular ‘This Is Not My Life’. US guest-starring roles include ‘Sons of Anarchy’, ‘The Glades’, ‘Hawaii Five-0’, ‘A.K.A.’ and ‘Without a Trace’. In Australia, he is best known for lead roles in ‘The Doctor Blake Mysteries’, the critically-acclaimed drama ‘Tangle’, and the comedy, ‘:30 Seconds’ which saw him nominated for the Most Outstanding Performance By an Actor award at the 2010 Australian Subscription Television & Radio Association Awards. After a gap of nineteen years, Joel is also currently playing his second regular character in New Zealand’s long-running medical soap ‘Shortland Street’.
