Date of Birth : Jul 27th 1968
International film star Cliff Curtis was born in a small Bay of Plenty town in New Zealand called Rotorua on 27th of July 1968 and attended Western Heights High School. He worked for four years as a builder and glazier before breaking into the world of television and film. Cliff Curtis was trained at the New England Drama School during 1988-89 before appearing in “The Piano” in 1993.
The actor’s interest in serious theatre – particularly the relationship between Maori and Greek myths – took him to Switzerland’s Teatro Dimitri Scuola for study. His earlystage appearances include such classics as MacBeth, The Cherry Orchard and Porgy and Bess.
