Trubie-Dylan Smith

Born in Christchurch and raised in Rangiora, Trubie later moved to Dunedin to do a BA in Languages and Linguistics at the University of Otago. He got involved in theatre on the side and became part of an improvised comedy troupe called Improsaurus. After finishing his degree, he spent a year in Toronto where he continued to hone his improv skills!

As well as an expert improvisor, Trubie is a bit of a hobby linguist and loves exploring the origin and historical development of words and their meanings. He also enjoys video games, particularly ones that tell a good story.

Entertaining others and making them laugh is what drives Trubie’s love of acting so he’s a perfect fit for Playhouse!
