‘Bad Kiwis’ filmmaker, writer and actor Rebecca McFadzien in the frame


The 8th Annual Fort Myers Film Festival wrapped up last night at the Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre with a champagne and dessert awards ceremony, and taking top honors as Best Short Short film was Bad Kiwis, directed by and starring Deb Foster and Rebecca McFadzien.

Rebecca plays the part of Summer. An actor, singer, dancer, filmmaker and writer, Rebecca strives to empower others to be true to themselves while also creating positive change throughout the world through the stories she tells. Essentially, her goal is to bring a little sunshine into the world and make people smile.

Although McFadzien was born in New York, she considers herself a true Kiwi because she was raised in New Zealand, where she developed her love of acting and her dislike for wearing shoes.

She graduated with a Bachelors of Performing and Screen Arts Degree at Unitec in Auckland, made an appearance or two on both Shortland Street (as Veronica Greenwood) and Power Rangers, and then moved to Los Angeles. More recently, she has played the female lead roles in the pilots for three new television series: Project J, Walter Wants a Woman and Fairy Luna and Friends.

Rebecca has performed in a wide range of roles on stage too, including Anne in The Diary of Anne Frank, Sandy in Grease, Mayzie in Seussical, and Belle in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. She has also been doing some presenting work for both live and recorded events.

She loves swimming in the ocean, gazing up at the moon, collecting crystals and connecting with people. To find out more about Rebecca, check out her Facebook page:
