Welsh-born New Zealand actor Ray Henwood has died:
One of New Zealand’s most beloved actors – and a man perhaps best known for helping highlight 1980s public-service New Zealand in the TV sitcom Gliding On – has died.
Ray Henwood died on Monday morning aged 82, Wellington’s Circa Theatre confirmed.
A pillar of Circa since co-founding it in 1976, the Welsh-born actor appeared in many plays, films and television programmes, notably the sitcom Gliding On.
Gliding On screened on TV between 1981 and 1985 – a comedy that “satirised a paper-pushing working life then-familiar to many Kiwis”, according to NZ on Screen. It featured four staff members at a government supply office. . .
