Rawiri Jobe plays Azza in Step Dave

Rawiri is of Ngati Raukawa decent from the Kapiti and Hauraki regions.

He grew up in Tauranga where he was heavily involved in drama at Tauranga Boys College.

Following high school he moved down to Wellington where he studied theatre and media studies at Victoria University.

In his last year at university Rawiri scored a role in his first professional show at Circa Theatre playing Arthur in The Cape.

Recently Rawiri has spent time travelling throughout Europe and also went to the U.S for an extended period, hosting the Broadway hit Earth's Dinosaur Zoo in New York, an interactive theatre show for kids featuring a collection of life sized dinosaur puppets.

Following a 6 month season across the U.S. he toured with the show to Dubai.

Rawiri regards the travelling component to his theatre work as a highlight, but turned down another stint in the States to play Azza on Step Dave, his first lead television role to date.
