Since leaving Shortland Street two years ago, Dotchin played roles in the American series Xena: Warrior Princess and the Hercules spin-off Young Hercules. She soon caught the attention of the shows' executive producers at Pacific Renaissance, and she went on to win the female lead role in their upcoming series Jack of All Trades Her role as Jodie Keane in "Lawless" won Dotchin the Best Actress Award at the 1999 TV Guide Television Awards.

"It was great to be able to do something different," she says. "Jodie is ambitious, gutsy and honest, and more than anything, she wants to be a cop."

Angela lives in Auckland and is the partner of 'Once Were Warriors' star Temuera Morrison.
