  1. Gday Rena my name is Roy i noticed your from the Bay of Islands NZ i knew someone else whom was born there his name was Kevin Ray Smythe i knew him for many years i considered him many things inc a Brother, an Uncle, A Housemate, Workmate etc hes now with the angels i was at his funeral it was an honour to know him i was wondering if you may have known him by any chance if not thats ok and btw your an awesome person yourself please keep up the awesome work wishing you all the best please take care and stay safe….

    • Kia ora Roy, I’m sorry for your sad loss. I asked my brothers and sisters and although most heard of a “Smythe’ family no one was familiar with Kevin. How old was he? And where did he grow up in the Bay of Islands?

  2. Hi Rena, don’t know if you will remember me ! It’s Brian Molyneux from New Zealand.
    I ‘ve followed your career over the time since we last met, StarWars and Siren particularly and I think of it, as a great honour to have known you and worked with you !
    Arthur is no longer with us, I lost him 3 years ago and miss him greatly!
    You probably won’t get this, bit I just felt like giving it a go !
    I have all of the photos of you in the gowns we made for you and all look fabulous !
    I hope this gets through.
    Lot’s of love,
    Brian ( Molyneux)

  5. Hello, Rena – Did I just hear you doing an industrial v/o for Microsoft Power Apps? If not you, there’s another New Zealander who’s gotten into the act.

  6. Felt inspired to express my appreciation for your works and craft. Both as an actor and also as an indigenous actor. When I see you on screen, I know the character will come alive and have substance. Thank you for putting your all into your work and sharing stories through your craft.

  7. Hi Rena,
    I was just watching you on The Orville and wow, you just get more amazing! Incredible and inspiring, very real and funny character, I cried! You won’t remember me, but I met you at a Grand Slam con in Pasadena years ago, after you did Star Wars. You signed my Once Were Warriors video and gave me a lobby card which you signed, so awesome! Still have them on display. I remember you said you gave your only copy of the film to your agent and no longer had one, and I called 2 video stores in the area, both of which were sold out. I felt so bad, but you hugged me and thanked me! So nice! I had no idea there was a sequel to Warriors, but I’ll be getting it soon. It must have been funny and cool to work with Temura Morrison on that, then Star Wars too, what a trip! Anyway, so glad to find your website, you’re the best!

    • Thank you Sonia! I don’t get to this website very often. Especially since I’ve been doing social media. I’m mostly on instagram @renaowen
      Thank you for the lovely memories. I was able to buy quite a few OWW dvds in the USA but I still have got around to opening my online shop!
      You stay safe and well!XO
