At just 21, Mile Fane has accepted the role of Youth Arts Coordinator at Auckland Theatre Company.
The daughter of David Fane and Bronwyn Bradley, who are also both part of the GCM family, Mile says she's been an informally trained actor for 21 years. "My dad is David Fane of The Naked Samoans and bro'Town. Seeing your dad as a cartoon character on TV and travelling the world is pretty life-shaping".
She attributes her early success to her willingness to get involved in any way possible. “Just put your name forward for whatever work you're looking to get into. Maybe you won't be right for that one, but you can get involved and they'll remember you“, she says.
The role will see her connecting the youth of Tamaki Makaurau with theatre; maintaining and developing programmes for primary schoolers up to university students. Programmes include Mythmakers, Summer School and the Here & Now Festival.
A huge congratulations to Mile, what an incredible role for such a promising, young talent.
