Bio

Edward Clendon has worked in various capacities as a performer in film, television and live entertainment since graduating from UNITEC’s acting program in 2007. Much of the last fifteen years has been devoted to circus, working as a core acrobat and aerialist with Auckland-based cirque-theatre company The Dust Palace, with whom he has toured locally and internationally to much acclaim.

Edward is also a highly trained stuntman and creature-actor (The Rings of Power, Ash vs. Evil Dead, Evil Dead Rise, Sweet Tooth, Bad Behavior, Time Bandits).

Edward rides horses and practices and competes in the Chinese martial art Wushu. He also loves to perform in traditional theatre, most recently treading the boards with Auckland Theatre Company in Hyperspace to rave reviews.
