New Indie Movie “Mysterious Ways” Filming In Auckland, May 2022

by Scoop — 14 February 2022

Mysterious Ways tells the story of a vicar who decides to have a wedding with his Samoan boyfriend, Jason. A church marriage for gay Anglicans is prohibited. God is forced to step in.

Mysterious Ways is a timely exploration of issues around faith for gay people both here in New Zealand and around the world. It’s a side of the rainbow community not often explored on the screen and we are thrilled to be attracting great talent to tell the story.

Auckland singer Nick Afoa, who played Simba for five years in the London West End theatre production of The Lion King, has been cast as Jason.

Nick, who is of Samoan and Croatian heritage says: “I’m excited about tackling my first dramatic role. Screen acting is something I’ve wanted to explore for some time. The film bravely confronts issues around sexuality and religion. I’m looking forward to exploring the challenge of how we overcome these.”
