Wellington actor Ginette McDonald stumbled in to her profession at the age of 15 after meeting playwright Bruce Mason who was keen to promote more Kiwi localism on stage. 

She invented her alter ego, Lyn of Tawa just a year later, and has gone on to feature in many plays and on Televison in this country and in the UK for the last 5 decades.

She is acting royality in Aotearoa, a national treasure.

She talks with Jesse about the books, shows and music that have influenced and inspired her.
