Playing the character of Bob, the boarding house Manager, Greg Johnson uses his considerable talent to make the role his own. Greg is a veteran star of New Zealand screen. Besides performing in numerous local television series, he has acted in such feature films as The End of the Golden Weather, The Piano, Spooked, and The World’s Fastest Indian. Greg initially auditioned for a different role in the film, but was immediately identified as a potential Bob. Given the opportunity, he relished the part and brought an endearing mix of gruff humour and compassion to it.
