Career Highlights


A recent graduate of Toi Whakaari: New Zealand Drama School, rising star Daniel Cockerill is an ambitious performer with an (already) impressive portfolio that continues to expand. Appearing in a number of roles while honing his craft — including lead in Women Beware Women and supporting in Angels in America and Romeo and Juliet — Cockerill holds outstanding accolades both on-screen and on-stage, thriving in theatre and film alike. In fact, the adaptable young actor keeps himself secure in both camps, and in 2022 Daniel managed to secure lead roles in both Chaz Harris’ short film You’re Out and Janaye Henry’s theatre production SexWise Tour.
