Guestbook Entry

  1. Kiaora Rena,

    I’ve been a fan of yours since the first time you played the role of Beth Heke. I rented it in 1995 in Cincinnati, Ohio. I’m thrilled to see you continue to have success over the years. I’m an indie filmmaker and screenwriter from America, never been to Aotearoa, but one of my buddies is Ngati Ranginui and from Tauranga. He’s working on building a Marae here in Las Vegas, Nevada. He respectfully cleared it with the Native Paiutes first. They supported his idea. I pray someday in the future I will get to work with you. I pray the Dead Lands is a success. Sincerely, Jason Anthony Fisher

    • Thanks, Jason! I’m hoping to get to Vegas soon and maybe we can meet, kanohi ki te kanohi (face 2 face)! For now, go to my pro face book page as there’s a link there for the OWW Reunion Documentary that you can watch online! Rena xo

  2. Hi Rena,

    I saw Once Were Warriors for the first time today. I was three when it came out- so I hope you’ll forgive the delayed fanmail! I was beyond moved and particularly blown away by your performance. I saw you before in The Straits (and I always thought you were pretty badass) so I guess it shouldn’t have gobsmacked me quite like that.

    Anyway, I was just googling around to find out what other work you’ve done when I stumbled on this website. I love that there’s a message section to write to you!

    I’m so happy that you are out there, doing such excellent and diverse creative work. I’m always saddened when us women of colour are put into simple stereotypes, or just african americanized, and it really makes me feel privileged to now have the chance to check out some more of your films and tv shows.

    Seriously, thank you.

  3. Hi Rena

    Thank you for simply being an excellent performer. Have enjoyed your performances thus far and will continue to do so in the future.

    thank you & take care

  4. Hi Rena! I am a Hong Kong student studying in the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. I took a subject studying multiethnic identities and lives. Our lecturer mentioned you as an example. I watched your film Once Were Warriors and I appreciate it very much. I then chose to write about you and your ethnicity. I’d like to know more about you and see more pieces of art from you. Thank you and take care.

  5. Rena you are amazing. Saw once were warriors with my daughter years ago and loved it. I knew I remembered you when I watched the straits..I am so disappointed that its cancelled. I loved all of you on the show. Also didn’t realize you have done lots of movies.Am a huge fan of you. You are beautiful. Hope I can see more of you. Gigi from California.

  6. Dear Rena,
    Thank you for your inspiring performances we enjoyed. This weekend we will watch the Once were warriors movie and sequel with the children to look and discuss one of the many faces of life. I read about your endeavors in life and wish you succeed in all things that you pursue (can imagine you left your mother very proud). All the best. Wim in the Netherlands.

  7. Just seen the ‘Straits’. Electric performance from you. Very very impressive. You have something special. Was in your wonderful country (NZ!) last April.What a place ! So fortunate to be there. Regards. John in Australia. x
