It is with heavy hearts and deep sadness that we announce the passing of esteemed and iconic Theatre and Television actor and one of Circa’s founding and beloved members, Ray Henwood ONZM.
Since arriving in New Zealand from Wales in 1962, Ray’s contribution to NZ film and theatre has been immeasurable and in 2006 he was awarded the Order of Merit for services to film and theatre.
Please join us in offering our sincere condolences to the Henwood family, the Circa Theatre whanau, practitioners and patrons, the local Television, Radio and Theatre industry as well as everyone Ray has connected with over the years.
He will be greatly missed.
