Angela Marie Dotchin (born 31 March 1974 in Auckland, New Zealand) is an actress. She's most known for her roles as Kirsty Knight in Shortland Street, and as Emilia Rothschild in Jack of All Trades.

Personal life[edit]

Dotchin was born on 31 March 1974. Her father is a businessman of Welsh ancestry, with whom she traveled extensively, before the family returned to New Zealand in 1985. Dotchin also has an older sister. She attended Meadowbank Primary, in Meadowbank, Auckland and Selwyn College, in Kohimarama, Auckland.

Dotchin was the partner of New Zealand actor Temuera Morrison for six years.[1]

Career[edit]

In 1990, at the age of sixteen, Dotchin began modeling. Her first audition was for the role of Kirsty Knight in the long-running soap opera Shortland Street. At the time, Shortland Street was a private hospital, and Kirsty was one of the two receptionists. Later she moved ‘upstairs’, where she became PA to the clinic’s medical director.

American audiences were introduced to Angela by her roles in the Xena: Warrior Princess series and the Hercules spin-off show Young Hercules. Her popularity from these roles helped her land a starring role opposite Bruce Campbell in the short-lived television series Jack of All Trades.

Subsequently, she has appeared as Auckland private investigator Jodie Keane in a trilogy of made-for-TV thrillers: Lawless, Lawless: Dead Evidence and Lawless: Beyond Justice.

Dotchin moved to Britain in 2002, and currently works as a personal assistant in the fashion industry.[2]
