Hale Mawae


West Hollywood, CA, USA


Aloha! I am a native Hawaiian writer, actor, artist, and filmmaker originally from Kauai, Hawaii who previously attended the Sundance Native Lab with the Native Sundance Program in 2016. I graduated with honors from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in 2004 and have wrote and acted in multiple short films and most recently a guest starred on this seasons Hawai'i Five-0 as Luka Palakiko. My goal is to continue my acting career while also pursuing my dreams of writing, directing, and producing content that is close to my heart and my home; Hawai'i to help bring much needed representation in a highly marginalized and appropriated culture.
