Actor and film-maker Julian Arahanga is recovering from a brain injury after falling three metres on to concrete.

The 39-year-old has been released after a week in hospital.

But it could take months to recover from injuries suffered when he fell from scaffolding during a working bee at Te Kaahui Te Kohanga Reo in Newtown.

Arahanga played Nig Heke, the son of Jake and Beth in Once Were Warriors and What Becomes of the Broken Hearted, and he also had a role in Hollywood film The Matrix as well as helming documentary films such as the Songs from the Inside series on Māori Television.

He says his injuries, which include bleeding on the brain, have left him with a persistent headache.

National Secondary Schools Kapa Haka
WILLIE JACKSON: When I see a school like Kings College performing at the National Secondary Schools Kapa Haka compeition, it gives me a good feeling because to me, that shows our Maori culture is now the norm, not the exception.
Tuku a great choice.
WILLIE JACKSON: Te Tai Tokerau Labour MP Kelvin Davis is playing a clever game, he has welcomed the proposed alliance between Hone Harawira’s Mana and the Maori Party and says “It will be the Maori Party’s last move in politics”. He says this though because he knows that trouble looms.
