Theresa Healey first came to prominence in Alison Maclean’s celebrated short film Kitchen Sink but is probably better known for her five years as Nurse Carmen Roberts in Shortland Street. Other television appearances have included parts in Filthy Rich, Go Girls, Harry, The Blue Rose and Agent Anna. Theresa also investigated her Irish heritage in the documentary series Here to Stay and had leading roles in the films Vermilion, Jubilee and Savage Honeymoon. Theresa’s previous appearances for Auckland Theatre Company include Closer, Honour, Three Tall Women, Uncle Vanya, Calendar Girls and Trees Beneath the Lake, and has appeared in Tartuffe for Silo Theatre. Theresa has taken the last 18 months off from acting to team up with Deborah Hill Cone to write a five-part psychological thriller, which has been optioned and will go into production later this year.
