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.

Winston the Kingmaker
OPINION: The dirty politics scandal looks like it’s caught up on the government after the latest polls show that the comeback king Winston Peters could be the kingmaker come Election Day.
