Nicole Whippy was born in Suva, Fiji where she lived for the first couple of years of her life until her family migrated to NZ. She is best known for her work as a Television and Theatre Actress. VAI will be her film directorial debut.
“It is an absolute honour to find myself here creating Vai with my sister and 8 other strong, inspiring Pasifika women. I hope that as a roopu we each represent our island with dignity while showcasing the uniqueness of that nation, its people and landscape.”
