John Clarke

John Clarke (Venture Crewman)

DOB: 11th July, 1950

Mini biography: John was a comparatively late starter in his acting career, having his first role in the stage musical “Jesus Christ Superstar” in 1999 at the age of 39. He spent his earlier years as a musician, and played drums and sang in professional dance bands through the 70’s and early 80’s. John was born and bought up in Christchurch New Zealand, and moved to Auckland New Zealand after he quit the music business in 1987. A chance one-off gig playing drums backing a stage revue in Auckland got him thinking, and after auditioning and scoring his first role as one of the priests in J.S. Superstar in 1989, he has continued to ‘walk the boards’ in many many stage productions. He took acting for film classes, and started auditioning for film and television roles. After the usual round of disappointments and hard slog, John has since appeared regularly on various television drama’s and commercials, and has had roles in many short films and feature films. John is single, lives in Auckland, and is a bit of an animal fanatic. His ’best friend’ is an 8 year old blue roan English Cocker Spaniel called “Blue”.
