Elz Carrad as Caz Davis

he/him

Rūrangi marks the screen debut of 28-year-old newcomer Elz Carrad, our sensational leading man. Hailing from the Hokianga, Elz divides his time between his job as the manager of a small warehouse in Central Auckland, studying for his qualification as a personal trainer, touch rugby, acting courses - and raising his family with partner Dana. Elz speaks fluent Māori (te reo Māori was the primary language of his education up until age 16). He loves weight lifting, boxing, and Waka Ama (outrigger canoeing) and is also a skilled guitar slinger. Elz’s favourite snack is peanut butter on toast, and he’s the founding member of “Beard Club” - a club he and director Max Currie formed to exchange grooming tips on beard care. He keeps forgetting he’s trans.
