Today's guest on The Mixtape is actress, writer, director, and musician Ana Scotney. She's a familiar face, she starred as Angel on Shortland Street, Sepa in The Breaker Uppers, and Sheena the she-wolf in What We Do In The Shadows spin-off Wellington Paranormal. Ana is of Maori (Tuhoe), German, Jewish, and Irish descent, and is a proficient speaker of Te Reo. But her list of talents doesn't stop there, Ana is also a guitar and piano player as well as a dancer!

She has started releasing music under the moniker Kotiro, her fresh sound incorporates modern beatboxing and Ana's amazing voice to create a vibrant cross between sound art and music.

Ana plays Mata in the brand new New Zealand film Cousins, based on the novel by Patricia Grace. She joins Charlotte Ryan for an open and honest conversation about the film, the difference between working in acting and music, and chooses her favorite songs on this episode of The Mixtape.
