Molly Curnow is a young actor from New Zealand who brings curiosity, dedication, and humility to her work. After growing up immersed in rural musical theatre, Molly began acting professionally in 2019, appearing in Amazon’s The Wilds and Tikilounge Productions Teine Sā - Aitu. In 2021, she was accepted into Auckland’s leading drama school The Actors Program, where she was able to refine her talents for stage and screen acting and learn from New Zealand’s leading practitioners. Since graduating from The Actors Program, Molly has worked in television, film & theatre - most recently starring as Isla in New Zealand television drama Testify. She also had the pleasure of working with Massive Company on their 2023 devised theatre production ‘Heart Go… BOOM!’.

Alongside acting, Molly is also a singer-songwriter.
