I've never been to New Zealand before. But one of my role models, Xena, the warrior princess, comes from there.
There were two movies that asked me to go to Australia or New Zealand for long periods of time. One was 'Lord of the Rings' and one was 'The Matrix.' But I was actively involved at that time raising my family, and I couldn't really take that time out.
I'm a Kiwi. I'm from a beach suburb called Takapuna, which is on the north shore of Auckland in New Zealand.
New Zealand was one of the most beautiful countries to drive through for the scenery and the vast scale of the place.

I'd move to Los Angeles if New Zealand and Australia were swallowed up by a tidal wave, if there was a bubonic plague in England and if the continent of Africa disappeared from some Martian attack.

God bless America. God save the Queen. God defend New Zealand and thank Christ for Australia.
New Zealand's Daniel Vettori is a very good bowler.
I got to dress up in funny clothes and run around New Zealand with a bow and arrow for 18 months, how bad could that be?
When we shot 'The Lord of the Rings,' we had special permission to film in wild areas of New Zealand that could be accessed only by helicopter. They would drop us off and we would work all day, and they'd pick us up and take us out again.

I would have thought there's no greater country to watch rugby than New Zealand.
New Zealand is the only country I know well enough to write about. It can sometimes lead to complications.
I moved from New Zealand to Melbourne when I was 17. I'd planned to go to university to study French, but I was offered a contract to write and record an album that was too good to pass up. Looking back now I think that was pretty young but, at the time, I was ready to have an adventure.
I think it would be impossible not to be an Internet kid, coming from New Zealand, because culturally it's a little barren.
I think it's inevitable that New Zealand will become a republic and that would reflect the reality that New Zealand is a totally sovereign-independent 21st century nation 12,000 miles from the United Kingdom.

I moved out to New Zealand to live as I thought the warmth and peace and quiet would help me. I went away and changed my whole life routine.
