Rebecca is a Kiwi who was born in New York and raised in New Zealand, where she developed her love for acting and her dislike for wearing shoes.
She graduated with a Bachelors of Performing and Screen Arts Degree at Unitec, made an appearance or two on both Shortland Street and Power Rangers, and then moved to Los Angeles. She loves swimming in the ocean, gazing up at the moon, collecting crystals and connecting with people.
She's an actress, singer, dancer, filmmaker and writer because she wants to empower others to be true to themselves, while also creating positive change throughout the world through the stories she tells. Essentially, her goal is to bring a little sunshine to the world, and to make YOU smile - and she hopes to do just that with Bad Kiwis.
Deb is a born and raised a "Westie" from Auckland, New Zealand who got the 'travel bug' and a thirst for adventure early on in life. At 18, she moved to London, then later to New York City and has settled (for now) in Venice, California.
Deb has always loved exploring the arts, particularly those involving a camera. Whether in front of it, or behind the camera, Deb loves to use her skills as an actress, writer, director, producer and photographer to create work that she hopes will inspire and give confidence to others who want to create work that brings them joy.
Not one to take herself too seriously, Bad Kiwis is a playful exploration of pushing things to the extreme. Deb had a lot of freedom to play as an actress and a director and she is particularly proud of what she and co-creator Rebecca McFadzien have done with this. It's an expression of what it feels like to be a kiwi actress in Hollywood. The good, the bad and the ridiculous.
