Laura Surrich: Facts About The New Zealand Actress Who Acted In The Cure And Separation City

Acting Career:

Laura Surrich is an actress, known for The Cure, Diagnosis: Death, Separation City and King Kong. The following are her exact roles. 

The Cure (2014)    Laura Surrich as Secretary

Action meets extortion in this understated sci-fi thriller all about scientific research.

The head of a research team for a cancer product, whose side effects have not yet been proven, refuses to give consent for the drug to be marketed. But he will receive severe pressure from the owner. 

The film The Cure has very good reviews and is among the best known feature films in the world. The feature film was produced over long months of work and the final result can be enjoyed in 2014 after its theatrical release.

We’ve seen many of the actors and actresses in this movie work in other movies before, but we’ve loved seeing them play together like Stephen Lovatt, Luke Hawker, Nathalie Boltt, Laura Surrich, Antonia Prebble, and Susannah Donovan.

As you may have seen, there are many people involved in the making of a film and therefore, a figure is needed to coordinate all that chaos and decide when no one knows exactly what to do which is where director David Gould was in charge. You will enjoy 90 minutes of an engaging story. Although the filming can be done around the world, the majority of the production was done in America, not New Zealand. 

One of the most important parts of the film is the decision of the team of musicians directed and formed by Daniel Sadowski as it is in this case. Another of the most important parts of a film is the choice of the frames to be used, the lights creating effects, the direction of the characters’ gaze… all these decisions in this film have been made by David Paul. 

Diagnosis: Death (2009) Laura Surrich as Tawny

Diagnosis: Death is a 2009 New Zealand-made horror comedy film directed by Jason Stutter, co-written by Stutter and Raybon Kan, and features three members of the Flight of the Conchords television series, Bret McKenzie in a major role and cameos by Jemaine Clement and Rhys Darby. 

New Zealand’s own Laura Surrich played the role of Tawny. The plot unfolds around a facility where new drugs are tested on willing volunteers. While at a weekend experimental drug trial, Andre Chang and Juliet Reid meet and soon discover that their lives are in danger. The building is closed during the trial period and the drug on trial is found to cause extremely disturbing hallucinations that point to a horrific double murder that took place on the premises. He soon realizes that the only way to escape is to solve the mystery behind this horrible secret. 

They eventually discover that the facility’s charge nurse, Nurse Bates, murdered her sister and her nephew at the facility and covered it up as a murder/suicide. In an attempt to keep them quiet, Nurse Bates tries to kill Andre and Juliet, but the ghosts of her victims return and take revenge, killing Bates by impaling her on a stool. Andre and Juliet are later cured of their ailments, even though they were given placebos at trial. They then leave to take advantage of the second chance they have been given in life.

The film was released on August 3 while the DVD was released on December 29, 2009. 

Spartacus (2010)  Laura Surrich as Slave/Bath Tub Girl (1 episode)

Spartacus is an American historical television series that began airing on Starz on January 22, 2010. It is a television series that presents the life of the famous rebellious gladiator Spartacus in a fictionalized way. The series also shows the life and adventures of his fellow gladiators and the Romans closest to Spartacus. It was shot in New Zealand and stands out for the numerous appearance of digital effects very similar to those seen in the film 300.

The main plot of the Spartacus TV show is the story of Spartacus, the leader of one of the largest slave uprisings in the period 74 BC in the Roman Republic. Executive producers Steven S. DeKnight and Robert Tapert focused on structuring the events of Spartacus’ vague early life leading up to the beginning of historical records. 

After the completion of the first season, titled Spartacus: Blood and Sand, production on the second season was delayed as Spartacus star Andy Whitfield was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Starz has decided to release a six-episode prequel mini-series titled Spartacus: Gods of the Arena. The actor’s illness returned and he died on September 11, 2011. In subsequent seasons of the series, the role of Spartacus was played by Liam McIntyre. The second season was called Spartacus: Revenge. On June 4, 2012, Starz announced a third and final season titled Spartacus: War of the Damned.

The series chronicles the life of the famous Spartacus, from his capture at the hands of the Romans in the region of Thrace, through his life in the gladiator school of Batiatus, to his rebellion and escape with his fellow gladiators. The story narrates all the adventures of Spartacus within the Ludus, his coexistence with the rest of the gladiators, how the Romans treat the gladiators themselves, and the experiences of Batiatus, the Lanista, and his attempts to ascend socially, unscrupulously using the gladiators.

Spartacus played by (Andy Whitfield)/(Liam McIntyre) was a Thracian warrior. His Thracian people became part of the Roman auxiliary troops in their fight against the Dacians, although he decided to desert them when he saw how the Romans did not comply with the conditions established with the Thracian warriors. When his villa is looted and burned, he flees with his wife but is captured by the Roman leader Claudius Glabro and sold to Batiatus, head of a gladiatorial school. Spartacus became a legend by defeating the Greek Theokoles, an undefeated legendary gladiator. Spartacus achieves the promise that Batiatus will bring back his wife, who had been sold into slavery by Glabro, but upon reuniting with her, he dies in her arms as a result of the serious injuries he had suffered in an assault on the caravan that was transporting her. 

Other roles: Gannico (Dustin Clare), Lentulus Batiatus (John Hannah), Lucretia (Lucy Lawless), Ilithia (Viva Bianca), Claudio Glabro (Craig Parker), Crixus (Manu Bennett), Oenomaus or Doctore (Peter Mensah), Surah (Erin Cummings), Ashur (Nick Tarabay), Look (Katrina Law), Varro (Jai Courtney) and Slave/Bath Tub Girl (Laura Surrich).

Separation City (2009)    Laura Surrich as Kimberly

Separation City (2009) is a New Zealand film starring Joel Edgerton, Danielle Cormack, Rhona Mitra, and Les Hill. It is directed by Paul Middleditch and features Laura Surrich as an extra called Kimberly. The film is a dramatic comedy, following the collapse of two marriages, set in Wellington. 

In the plot, Simon (Joel Edgerton) is a decent guy, married to a lovely woman Pam (Danielle Cormack), living comfortably with two children. He has grown tired of the lack of sex and is attracted to a friend of his wife, Katrien (Rhona Mitra) who plays the cellist. Katrien flies to New Zealand to follow her husband Klaus (Thomas Kretschmann) so that the resigned couple can rekindle their marriage. However, she catches him in bed with a young art student and her marriage falls apart. Katrien, now available and alone due to the breakdown of her marriage, is susceptible to Simon’s attraction.

The two become fascinated with each other, but do not start an affair right away. She doesn’t want to destroy the biggest draw of her, which is that she is upright and trustworthy. They eventually try a few meetings, but something always goes wrong. The opportunity comes when they discover that they will both be in Germany the same week. In Berlin, Simon books a hotel room, where he and his boss at work are attending a convention. Katrien arrives in his room, but before they can have sex, his wife surprises him when she shows up. Katrien escapes into an adjacent room through a connecting door and Simon and his wife make violent love, which Katrien hears through the wall. She gets mad because they were about to have sex and he is having sex with his wife.

Pam sees Simon sneak into the hallway during a speech and hears Katrien’s voice on the other end of her phone, she realizes what they’re doing and flies back to Wellington angrily. She soon asks for a separation.

Simon professes his love to Katrien, but she says she doesn’t love him, so he returns to Wellington to live near his wife and children, whom he sees often (but he doesn’t know that his wife, Pam would bed with Katrien’s husband and wants a divorce). His wife eventually forgives him and when the movie ends, we find that Katrien has taken a job with an orchestra and lives blocks away from her ex-husband, who is now taking care of the children.

At the beginning of the comedy film, a group of five or six wives suggests that the men form an encounter group that meets regularly. At least one of the wives makes it a condition that her husband can return home despite their marriage condition. The arguments are fun, but the group breaks up after a session that turns into a free-for-all fistfight – like a typical painful marriage that is fun at first but heads to the gutter if love doesn’t exist. 

King Kong (2005) Laura Surrich as New York Theater Goer

In the midst of the Great Depression, vaudeville actress Ann Darrow (Naomi Watts) loses her job, forcing her to steal food to survive. Her luck changes when filmmaker Carl Denham (Jack Black) decides to cast her as the lead in her upcoming documentary, which will be filmed on Skull Island with the help of playwright Jack Driscoll (Adrien Brody). 

Apparently, this businessman, filmmaker and adventurer is also a thief, having just stolen the only copy of his last and unfinished film in front of the executives of the production company when they threatened to withdraw the funds. He has a few hours to gather his crew and board him aboard the steamer “SS Venture” so he can finish his film, a mix of action and documentary. Although everyone believes that the ship will sail to Singapore, Carl Denham hopes to find and film a mysterious and legendary place, Skull Island. Initially, the leading actress that stood him up led him to a desperate search for a size 36 actress that led him to Ann. 

Young actress Ann Darrow (Naomi Watts) is reluctant to embark on such an adventure, but she changes her mind when she learns that Jack Driscoll (Adrien Brody, Oscar-winner for The Pianist), a very fashionable playwright, is the author of the screenplay. The amount that his friend Carl gives him for inventing adventures is much higher than what he usually charges for a play. 

With the new leading lady and the unconvinced screenwriter on board, Carl Denham’s “movie ship” leaves New York Harbor and sets sail for a destination no one anticipated.

Once there they discover King Kong, a giant gorilla feared by the inhabitants of the island. Carl decides to give him a leading role in his documentary after observing that the primate shows a tremendous interest in Ann. Carl’s ambition will make him decide to kidnap the ape to move it to New York and expose it as if it were a work of art to earn money. Once in the city, it doesn’t take long for Kong to break free of his bonds. Now a wild beast over 10 meters tall is on the loose in one of the most populous cities in the world and only Ann can keep the incident from becoming a catastrophe.

Many doubts aroused the new version of ‘King Kong’ by Hollywood’s new golden boy, Peter Jackson in 2005. What kind of variations would the New Zealander print on such a huge classic in the history of cinema? To begin with, it is a more faithful remake than the version made by John Guillermin (1976). 


The New Zealand based actress graduated from the New Zealand College of Performing Arts in 2007 and went on to obtain another degree in Film & Television Production in 2013.
