Fantasy is Rose McIver’s forte. It has been like that from the beginning. The New Zealand born actress started her acting career as an angel when she was a kid. McIver started acting in commercials at the age of two. Most of her roles during the early years of her career were fantastical in nature. TV movies like ‘Hercules and the Amazon Women’, ‘Hercules in the Underworld’, ‘Hercules in the Maze of the Minotaur,’ and shows like ‘Hercules: The Legendary Journeys,’ and ‘Xena: Warrior Princess’ made her a familiar face among TV viewers.
McIver got her first big break with the 2006 series ‘Maddigan’s Quest.’ The 2007 series ‘Rude Awakenings’ made her more popular and in 2009, ‘Power Rangers RPM’ catapulted her to instant stardom. She played the role of Summer Landsdown/Yellow Bear RPM Ranger in 32 episodes of the series. Her supportive role in the 2009 supernatural drama ‘The Lovely Bones’ earned her critical acclaim. McIver established herself as an A-lister with several diverse roles in shows like ‘Super City’ (2011), ‘Masters of Sex’ (2013 – ) and ‘Once Upon a Time’ (2011- ).
“The reason I feel like I act is because you get to live a million different lives in one. I don’t have to go about my life, just being easy-going New Zealander Rose”, McIver once said in a Collider interview. “Sometimes I can inhabit a feisty, vicious character. Sometimes I can inhabit a painfully shy British girl, or whatever it might be,” she added. There is no doubt that McIver is one of the most talented actresses working in television right now and we hope to see her in more challenging roles. At this point, the question that might be circling your mind is what is the next Rose McIver movie or TV show? Well, the good news is that we have a clear answer to that question. Here’s the list of upcoming Rose McIver films/TV shows scheduled to release in 2019 and 2020. We can only hope that the latest Rose McIver movies would be as good as some of her recent ones.
