Brooke Williams Wanda

Brooke Williams played Wanda in the New Zealand sitcom Go Girls, appearing in three episodes.

Wanda:

Described by the writer of the series as “Kevin’s bonk buddy – Wanda the mad fairy” Wanda is the classic crazy girlfriend. She meets the male lead of the show in “Doing the Right Thing” and they fall into a ‘casual’ relationship – only Wanda doesn’t really think it’s casual. Over the course of three episodes, she gets progressively crazier, claiming such things as “Fairies are real… and I am one. Shhhh!” The final episode in which Wanda appears begin with the male lead locked outside of Wanda’s house in his underwear.

The show:

Go Girls is a New Zealand comedy/drama television series centering around four adult friends, Amy, Britta, Cody and Kevin, who live on the North Shore, Auckland. Dissatisfied with their lives, they make challenging promises to each other that they endeavour to fulfill throughout the series.

The series began with its first episode airing February 19th 2009 TV2 in New Zealand. It has also been screened in Australia, with the first episode screening August 8th 2009, right after So You Think You Can Dance on Network Ten. It was successful enough that it was renewed for a second season.

The show was created by Rachel Lang, responsible for the popular Outrageous Fortune television series, and Gavin Strawhan (Burying Brian). The two are responsible for the writing of the show, along with Kate McDermott.
