Hey Rena nice site!!!! I hope you are having a wonderful time in your new endeavors.
Rena, I have questions to ask of you about the filming of OWW.
I have choreography and costuming questions, actually.
Yet, I hate hogging this section, and fear that I might have already done so.
Is there another way to more privately “talk” to you, possibly? If so, I’d love to continue the conversation there, if that suits you.
I have a suggestion as to how this might be accomplished: I follow your Twitter page. If you follow me back, then I can PM you in twitter and give you my private email address. Then, if you wish to, you can email me there. I don’t wish to give out my email here.
~~ Abbie O.
For me, having not grown up with technology, I talk quicker than I type! Time wise and current schedule, I can accommodate a skype session soon?
I can’t skype! I don’t own a computer. I don’t own a tablet or …. either. I’d love to do the email thing with you, if you are amendable. I have a lot of questions about OWW to ask of you. I’ll DM you on twitter and give you my email. Then, you can take it from there if you wish, and I am hoping that you do.
Per prior message, sorry Abbie I don’t have the luxury of time to do it by typing. Get skype on your phone xo
Rena, my dear, you won’t believe this but I don’t have a smart phone either! But that said, I reckon you and I have found another solution to his problem / this situation haven’t we? 😉 Yes, we have and it appears to be working, thus far. Cheers to you and have a great weekend!
What I’ll doing in the future to accommodate everyones questions about Once Were Warriors or other jobs I’ve done, is to host live question & answer sessions via my professional face book page. So keep an eye on that for a time and date for a Rena Owen Q+A Sess!
I’ll be keeping an eagle’s eye out for the Q & A with you. Rena on FB.
I hope the Q & A stays up for awhile due to time changes, and all that. 😉
Will be sure to pick a day and time frame for Q&A Sess that will accommodate US & NZ time zones 🙂
Rena, I advertised the upcoming promise of a Q and A in both my twitter account and on my facebook page, as well.

I appreciate your love n support Abbie!
I just finished watching the complete series The Straits and you were absolutely fantastic in the role of Kitty Montebello. Continue success with your career and all the very best. Thank you!
Thank U David Easter! I LOVED playing mama Kitty M! We we all very disappointed when the series was not renewed. Unfortunately, ABC took a budget cut and The Straits was their most expensive show due to been shot on location. Here’s hoping there will be another similar character in my acting future!
Sorry, I have to add one more thing: I keep running into people who have seen ‘Once were Warriors” and who (like me) called it one of their favourite films, the hard-hitting subject matter notwithstanding. Ms. Owen, you really should have won the best actress award at the NZ Film Awards, the programme spoken of in the documentary. That it was denied you, is still a travesty to my mind. And we all could see how hurt you were that you got overlooked in the documentary as well. Heart-breaking, but, at least you got your upset off of your chest, which is good. And, you went on to be honoured around the world and in everyone’s hearts and minds, as well.

Thank you again Abbie. During my OWW documentary interview, I had not expected Julian to ask about that NZ award loss. That question did take me by surprise and my emotional response to it equally surprised me. But it was honest and real. Although I missed out on the establishment vote, at the time what helped me the most was knowing I had the peoples vote! xoxo
This website is lovely, Ms. Owen. Your acting is right up there, as well. I first came to know of your work through the film, “Once were Warriors”, as many other people have, around the world. The film remains one of my all time favourite movies. The documentary on / about the movie was equally compelling viewing. I’m so glad that Julian Arahanga thought to gather the Heke family around again for a nice reunion.
Do you take suggestions, for this website, Ms. Owen? I hope you do. I would love to read the full articles from the magasines on this page, please: http://renaowen.com/magazines/
The Listener magasine and NZ Film magasine articles interest me most. I reckon those would be quite good reads. Thank you, in advance, for the future posting of the articles, should you chose to do so.
Take good care, everyone and have a great day!
Thank U Abbie! I’m very grateful to Armando Madero who did an amazing job of taking my old website and revamping it into this hot new site which I’m slowly but surely learning how to navigate 🙂 I am very open to all suggestions. Unfortunately with the Listener & NZ Film Magazines, they were all pre-internet in the mid 1990s, so are not available online. One day when time is on my side and I am back in NZ, I want to digitalize all my old media that came prior to the digital age we now live in. I have boxes full of great media and photos to be posted one day! For now, I’ll be posting articles and photos I can access. Appreciate your support!
Right-O, Rena! 🙂
OK well … when you can scan the lot of articles and photos of you, I’ll be reading them then. And, what good fun that’ll be, eh?
Say, I love your replies to me on twitter, from this page of yours: https://twitter.com/TheRealRenaOwen
I’m here on twitter: https://twitter.com/ShesSoPithy
Cheers to everyone here and have a good day and/or evening, please.
Yep, there will be a lot of reading for you! Back @ ya re having a good day/evening!
Thank you for replying to me on twitter, Rena, from your @TheRealRenaOwen page.
Btw, I’m here on twitter: @ShesSoPithy
I’ll greatly look forward to reading all the articles and such that you choose to digitalise and put up here, Miss Rena.
Until then do take care and have a good day / evening everyone!
I’m a newbie to social media with a lot to learn still. If you don’t get me here or on twitter, you’ll definitely get me on my pro face book page: https://www.facebook.com/TheRenaOwen
First time i seen “once were warriors” i keep watching over and over again, i thought the whole group were amazing actors, Thank You!
Thank U, Cecelia. 20 years later it still remains a cult-classic and one of the best roles I have had to date!
Just watched the Once Were Warriors reunion and was reminded of your outstanding work on the film.
You’re an inspiration to someone like me, a Polynesian actor just trying to make it.
Just found your Facebook page, and I’m excited to follow your cinematic endeavors.
Have a great weekend!
Bless U, Wayne. I thought Julian (Nig) did a great job of the reunion documentary, particularly knowing how much interview, general & film footage, he had to chose from! Ps. All the best with your acting aspirations! It’s a very good time to be Polynesian or Ethnically Ambiguous!
Sis Beth, nice house! Looking forward to support you on all endeavors you produce. Stay strong and God bless.
G’bless U brother. Appreciate da ongoing love n support of U n da ‘Aiga – always!
Your website is looking good. I think you are a wonderful person and I wish you long lasting success in all of your endeavors.
Couldn’t have done it without you, ARMANDO MADERO!!

Couldn’t have done it without you, RAYNA MADERO!!
