Career Highlights

Mike Minogue has probably played enough policemen in his career to pass as a real officer. He’s starred in TV doco-drama How to Get Away with Murder: The Scott Watson Case and NZ thriller-series Rage, which earned him a nomination at the 2012 NZ television awards for Best Supporting Actor. Mike later scored a win for Best Actor at the 2019 awards for his performance in Taika Waititi’s mockumentary series Wellington Paranormal. Despite the police theme, Mike has proved himself to be extremely versatile on and off the screen. He is the creator of popular web-series The Watercooler, inspired by real life stories sent in by viewers.
