Toby Sharpe (Will)


Toby Sharpe, originally from Wellington, studied Architecture after leaving school. He has always had a passion for art and over the last 7 years has been selling pieces to make ends meet as an actor.Currently he and his wife own and operate an Auckland photography business ‘Kelly Newland Photography’.

He has been a jack of all trades working as a Train Driver at Wellington Zoo, a Ski instructor for 3 seasons in Canada (absolutely brilliant) and 1 in Scotland (bloody awful) and he made and sold bone carvings in Denmark for a summer.

He travelled for most of the 90’s through North & South America, Asia, Europe and finished off by driving through Africa for a year and a half with a Landrover bought in Glasgow.
