Cliff Curtis cast as a lead in Avatar sequels

One of our best Kiwi actors, Cliff Curtis, has just landed one of his best roles ever - as one of the lead characters in the upcoming Avatar films!

Avatar was a massive blockbuster hit and directed by the guy who created the legendary Titanic amongst other huge films, so these upcoming roles for Cliff are an oppurtunity of a lifetime. 

The news was shared exclusively to the NZHerald by one of the film producers saying "Not only is Cliff a great actor but he is a great person too."

Cliff's character is leader of the reef people clan, Metkayina, and his name is Tonowari.
