Natalie Medlock Writer/Director Profile



Natalie is a British-born New Zealand actress, writer and burgeoning director. She’s best-known for co-writing and starring in HBO Max’s feature film There’s No I in Threesome, which garnered international acclaim from the likes of the New Yorker, the LA Times and The Guardian. Her other acting ventures have included roles in popular Kiwi shows such as long-running drama Shortland Street, The Almighty Johnsons, Auckland Daze, as well as Netflix’s Roman Empire and Amazon Prime series American Playboy: The Hugh Hefner Story. As a writer, Natalie has worked across both New Zealand and Australia - a career highlight being a story producer on Australia’s most popular soap Neighbours. She has written across most genres, and is great on, or leading a story table. A number of Natalie’s writing projects are currently in development with various media companies, such as NZ On Air and the New Zealand Film Commision. The latest being The Pact, a drama series based on a short film she wrote and directed (which did an acclaimed run on the festival circuit). Keep an eye out for it, as it is set to screen later this year.
