WHAKAMĀRAMA

Mēnā he rite tonu te momo kiripuaki ka kawea e tētahi kiriwhakaari i roto i ētahi whakaari maha, ka kīia kua ‘kiriwhakaari toka’ ia. Ka tino honoa te kiriwhakaari ki taua momo kiripuaki, pērā i te toa whawhai me te kuia tāwharau i tōna whānau.

If an actor repeatedly plays a particular type of character, they are said to be ‘typecast’ in that role. The actor becomes strongly connected with that type of character, such as a fighting warrior, or a grandmother protective of her family.
