Carl Dixon attended Unitec. The Auckland based film, theatre and TV course.
Carl landed a lead in a TV series The Amazing Extraordinary Friends straight out of school.
Carl is a Drama School graduate.
Carl Dixon: (Describing the feeling of wearing his snug lycra superhero suit) To be honest, quite comfortable. The very first thing we did at Unitec was in a spandex outfit, so I had been trained.
Carl Dixon: I was definitely pleased and excited, but I was also a bit nervous and scared, it felt quite surreal. Unitec [the Auckland-based film, theatre and TV course] definitely prepared me for the role but I learnt a lot on the show, and there's even more still to learn, but I guess that's the nature of acting.
