Biography

Often referred to as a 'Kiwi legend', Jodie Rimmer captured our hearts on the big screen in the New Zealand film IN MY FATHER’S DEN, directed by Brad McGann in 2005.  Her role as Jackie garnered both local and international attention, Jodie being awarded BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS at the 2005 Air NZ New Zealand Screen Awards.

She was head-hunted to play the lead in the Australian produced film PLAYING FOR CHARLIE, by the director Pene Patrick.

Jodie has been a professional actor since the age of 12. She grew up in Auckland, starting out in theatre and television. Over the years Jodie’s work has continued to feature prominently on the small screen with lead roles in UNTIL PROVEN INNOCENT, & THE STRIP (where she won BEST ACTRESS in the 2003 TV Guide Peoples' Choice Awards), FILTHY RICH and POWER RANGERS to name but a few. Most recently she is set to star in SWEET TOOTH which was released in June 2021 on Netflix.

Jodie's feature film debut was I’LL MAKE YOU HAPPY where she starred with well-known New Zealand actors Michael Hurst and Rena Owen. She has worked alongside international stars such as Rhys Ifans playing his wife in the UK BAFTA award winning television feature NOT ONLY BUT ALWAYS, directed by Terry Johnson. Jodie has also worked with industry stalwarts such as Aaron Spelling on the American show FORBIDDEN ISLAND; she was a core-cast member of YOUNG HERCULES in which she co-starred with Ryan Gosling and she was a regular guest on the long running HERCULES and XENA shows. Her next feature film which is set to debut later in 2021 is NUDE TUESDAY.

In 2019, she was a contestant in New Zealand's CELEBRITY TREASURE ISLAND.

Jodie is also often heard on radio or TV as a voice over artist, most recently on THE BACHELORETTE/THE BACHELOR 2021, and PUPPY SCHOOL.
