Kiwi accent for hire earns Ingrid Rugby World Cup gig

INGRID Dyer from Kapiti has scored the role acting herself in a UK Tesco’s Rugby World Cup commercial which has had close to 500,000 views already.

Dyer, 24, was one of hundreds of kiwis auditioning for the part that tells a short story of how to host an expat New Zealand rugby breakfast supporting the All Blacks.

Dyer had just completed two years of full time acting and drama training in London and was on the agent’s books when the paid gig came up.

“I absolutely love rugby and will be watching the world cup as I always do. This was all a bit for fun really,” she said.

Dyer grew up in Wellington and Kapiti where she was involved in performing theatre and productions while completing a music degree at Victoria University.

She applied and was accepted into AMTA drama school in London in 2013 which she has now completed.

“This is my first commercial and it’s quite a buzz that so many people are seeing it,” Dyer said.
