Native Affairs – Home from Hollywood

By Ward Kamo

For many, Cliff Curtis is the multi-cultural face of Hollywood. From Colombian drug lord, Iraqi rebel, to an Indian self-help guru, he's played the lot. 

Now he's landed - potentially - the role of his life, playing the lead character - an American Māori - on the highest-rated drama ever, Fear the Walking Dead.  Native Affairs caught up with one of Te Arawa's most famous exports, Cliff Curtis, at his home marae of Tapuaekura.
