Tane was in his third year of studying Stage and Screen when he got the audition for Shortland Street. 

Born overseas but brought up in NZ, Tane's been in love with acting his whole life. He only started taking it seriously in the last few years. 

Tane grew up with Jayden Daniels, who plays Curtis Hannah on Shortland Street. Outside of acting, he enjoys reading, making music, dancing and drawing. 

Tane also enjoys being able to perform every day at work, doing what he loves. 

Tane admits that he has a dormant dark side, maybe his character Ali does too?
