Rose Frances McIver (most known as Rose McIver) is born on October 10, 1988 in Auckland (New Zaeland). She is best known for her role as Summer Landsdown in 2009's 'Power Rangers: RPM' and 'Lindsey Salmon' on the supernatural drama film 'The Lovely Bones'. Most recently she was seen as as TinkerBell on 'Once Upon A Time' and Vivian Scully on 'Masters of Sex'.Born in October 1988, she was raised in Titirangi (a suburb in the Waitakere Ward of the city of Auckland) with her father, John George Whitfield McIver -a photographer- and her mother, Annie McIver (born Coney) an artist. She has an older brother, Paul McIver, who is salso a musician and a former actor.
As a child Rose was talkative and precocious. She began acting at the age of two, after following her older brother Paul’s example and appearing in a television advertisement.
"My parents were very hesitant at first," she says. "They didn't want us to be out there as working children but we enjoyed it, so they thought, 'what's the harm?'"
Mum and Dad keeping an eye on her education as she steadily progressed, with no acting training, from job to job. It's no surprise Rose wound up in the arts. Mum Annie is a ceramicist; Dad Mac is a photographer. The floor of their Titirangi home was always cluttered with sculptures; the walls groaning with paintings, the camera quickly becoming a familiar piece of equipment.
Rose McIver began acting at the age of two (in 1990), after following her older brother Paul’s example and appearing in differents television commercials.
The Piano, 1993
At the age of three, she played an angel on 'The Piano'. She can't remember her first "acting" gig at the age of two, but she remember filming 'The Piano'. She said ; "I remember being desperate for the toilet and they said I wasn't allowed to because it looked cute and my character needs to go to the toilet. So they kept it in, it was a bit of method acting. I remember feeling the injustice even at that age."
By the age of four she had appeared in her first short NZ film 'The Joker - A Domestic Faerie Tale' by Aileen O'Sullivan, played a Hydra in a 'Hercules' tele-movie, and already had one classic on her CV - a small role in a scene of The Piano saw her on-stage in angel wings, being forced to learn method acting as a performer needing to go to the restroom.
After 'The Piano', Rose’s screen credits began to accumulate. She had a recurring role on long-running soap 'Shortland Street', appeared in further incarnations of the Hercules franchise (including winning a juvenile actress award for spin-off Xena: Warrior Princess) and played preppy schoolgirl roles in a number of American family productions shooting down unde and and without forgetting to mention a few Disney films.
TWTATL, 1997 – Flying, 1998
Locally, she joined Danielle Cormack for the first of many roles in hit movie 'Topless Women Talk about Their Lives', and in 1998 had a big part in short film 'Flying', playing a girl who finds a kindred spirit in her dying grandmother.
Maddigan’s Quest, 2006
At 17, Rose got her big break, winning the starring role in post-apocalyptic fantasy series 'Maddigan’s Quest'. Rose learnt tightrope and juggling before spending four months of her summer holidays playing Garland Maddigan, part of a travelling circus troupe — and the last member of the family line. Winner of a 2007 NZ Screen Award for Best Children’s Programme, 'Maddigan's Quest' aired among other places in England, Australia and the United States.
Rose followed it with neighbours-at-war tale 'Rude Awakenings', which offered a welcome and rare chance to play nasty — donning spectacles and colouring her hair to play manipulative teen "Constance Short". "That's what I like about acting," she told Herald writer Rebecca Barry Hill. "You can step into someone else's personality for a while and then leave it and not have to treat people like that."
The Lovely Bones, 2009
In 2009 (the year that will change her lie forever) McIver scored a role in Peter Jackson’s adaptation of Alice Sebold novel 'The Lovely Bones'. Over the course of the film her (American) character aged eight years; she played "Lindsey Salmon", sister of the girl around whom the story revolves. American website Movieline called her character “one of the film’s more grounded and enjoyable elements: part Nancy Drew, part budding action hero”. Her role included a nail-biting scene (shot in both Philadelphia and New Zealand) where Lindsey’s suspicions lead her to sneak into the house of the suspected killer.
After shooting 'The Lovely Bones', Rose could have moved to Los Angeles, capitalising on the acclaim she received playing the grieving teen forced to grow up after her sister is murdered and her family life begins to crack. Instead, she enrolled at the University of Auckland to study psychology, anthropology and linguistics, subjects with the potential to inform her acting. She also sought out local projects, to stay close to friends and family.
Power Rangers RPM, 2009
From March to December 2009 at the age of 21, she played "Ranger Yellow/Summer Landsdown" in the television series 'Power Rangers: RPM' for 32 episodes.
Next, the actor was juggling university studies with time in theTaranaki. This time she was cast as a teen caught up in blackmail in Ronald Hugh Morrieson tale 'Predicament'. Filming took place in July and August 2009 in the towns of Hawera and Eltham. The double-act took its toll on her grades but this didn't faze her. The idea was to explore topics that interested her rather than ace them. She said ; "I crave knowledge. So studying seems like the obvious thing to do while I can, while I have no dependents." Since then she has cameoed as a cheerleader in Madeleine Sami showcase, TV comedy 'Super City'.
About her 'two lifes' she said ; "It's nothing exceptional," she says of her life growing up in front of the camera. "Some kids played hockey in their school holidays and I just worked. Acting was always more of a hobby than a serious pursuit."
"Rosie is surprising as an actress," says director Peter Jackson. "As funny and light-hearted as she is in person, she can summon real depth and strength to a performance as an actor. She's able to bring true grit to a character and there aren't many young actresses out there who can do that."
In March 2010, Rose starred in 'That Face', her first professional theatre role, a challenge she'd long been hoping to take on. The long rehearsal process, the exploratory work nailing a character, was a new process for an actress used to relying on instinct.
2011, saw Rose co-starring in based-on-a-true-story talefilm 'Tangiwai - A Love Story'. Playing the love-struck fiancee of Kiwi cricketer Bob Blair (Ryan O’Kane), her character boards the ill-fated train on Christmas Eve in 1953. Dominion Postreviewer Linda Burgess praised McIver (and O'Kane's) performances as "consistently excellent". By the time Tangiwaihad its television debut on 14 August 2011 McIver was in Los Angeles, attached to one prospective film and hunting for more — appreciative that thanks to The Lovely Bones, "when I go into a room of people there’s at least a glimmer of recognition.”
Since then she played 'Brigdet Byron' on the hit series 'CSI: Crime Scene Investigation'.
In 2012, she has been cast as the lead character in MTV's 'Cassandra French's Finishing School for Boys' (based on the book by Eric Garcia) and produced by Garcia and Krysten Ritter. But unfortunately, the pilot was unsold.
During the past two years, Rose has put her studies at the 'University of Auckland' on hold, and has traveled to Los Angeles for a couple of projects. She played 'Sammy Walton' on the Australian film directed by Richard Gray 'Blinder' & more recently she has been cast opposite Chris Lowell in the indie film 'Light Years' who became 'Brightest Star'.
In 2013, she has been cast as a recurring character, 'Vivian Scully' on Showtime's 'Masters of Sex' (based on the book Masters of Sex: The Life and Times of William Masters and Virginia Johnson). The drama was filming in New York in March 2013, and the first season has been broadcasted in September.
In July 2013, it was announced that Rose landed the role of 'Tinker Bell' for a multi-episode story arc on the hit serie, 'Once Upon a Time'.
In February 2014, Rose was cast as the adult 'Cathy Dollanganger' in the Lifetime television film 'Petals on the Wind' (adapted from the book on the same name by V. C. Andrews). She started directly the filming which lasted from late February to 21 March 2014.
In March 2014, Rose was announced to star in CW's new series 'iZombie' from Rob Thomas as 'Olivia Moore/Liv''
In 2014 she won her first stateside starring role, in CW's series 'iZombie' from Rob Thomas alongside Robert Buckley (Liv’s love interest), Malcolm Goodwin, Aly Michalka and David Anders (who has played alongside her in ‘Once Upon A Time‘). Based on the comic strip of the same name, the series sees Rose playing "Liv Moore", a trainee doctor who becomes a zombie, then starts eating the brains of murderers, which allows her to take on their identities and help solve crimes. Rose was craving some comedy; she told website Collider that as a little girl, she wanted to "live a million lives in one. That's why I became an actor. And Liv gets to do that. She gets to experience things from different perspectives."
Always in 2014, Rose was announced to make some appearances on 'Play It Again, Dick' from creator Rob Thomas and following Ryan Hansen’s character Dick Casablancas. The series will also feature : Jason Dohring, Enrico Colantoni, Percy Daggs III, Daran Norris, Francis Capra, Kyle Gallner, Christopher B. Duncan and more. 'Play It Again, Dick' will premiere on CW Seed, The CW’s online distribution platform, on Sept. 15.In March 2017, it was reported that Rose was in Romania, filming 'A Christmas Prince' for Netflix which was released 17 November 2017. In 2018, Rose has been cast in the musical feature, 'Daffodils'. Filming began February 2018 in Wellington, Waikato, and Wairarapa, and the film will be released in New Zealand and Australia in 2019. McIver is also an ambassador for Emirates airlines.

ROSE : Pronounced - r OH z
Originally a Norman form of a Germanic name, which was composed of the elements hrod "fame" and heid "kind, sort, type". The Normans introduced it to England in the forms Roese and Rohese. From an early date it was associated with the word for the fragrant flower rose (derived from Latin rosa). When the name was revived in the 19th century, it was probably with the flower in mind.
FRANCES : Pronounced - f r AN - s iss
Feminine form of FRANCIS. The distinction between Francis as a masculine name and Frances as a feminine name did not arise until the 17th century. A notable bearer was Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini (1850-1917), a social worker and the first American to be canonized.
MCIVER : Pronounced - m ih k - AY - v uh r
THIRSTYMUD™ Hydrating Treatment – GLAMGLOW To hydrate her skin, the must moisture for her is the ‘GLAMGLOW’ collection.
Masquintense Fine – KERASTASE With the ‘Liv Moore’ look, Rose’s hair also are really dry. She is using ‘KERASTASE’ collection mask and they’re like saving her hair.
Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels – SKYN ICELAND During early mornings filming she is using ‘SKYN ICELAND’ for her dark circles. They also are life savers for her.
Body Butter, Olive – THE BODY SHOP If there were a real-life zombie apocalypse and if she has to choice one beauty product, Rose would take a heavy moisturizer/a nice rich moisturizer like an Olive Body Butter from ‘THE BODY SHOP’.
"What’s your go-to look in real life? I think good skin is always appealing, so actually a skincare regime would be my go-to favourite thing, like a nice moisturizer. I’ve been loving Kate Somerville lately. I think it’s nice to see people’s real beauty and who they are. In my own life, when it’s not for photo shoots or anything else, I think it’s nice to have quite a minimal look."
Are there any beauty products from New Zealand you miss now that you're living in the U.S.? "There's a great line called Trilogy. I like to use natural and organic as much as possible, and they have a lot of great natural lines, so I miss that a little. We use [Lucas'] Papaw a lot at home, too. I've noticed it more and more out here."
BEAUTY ROUTINEHot Flannels/WashCloths She is a big fan of hot-flannels/washcloths. She use a really hot cloth to steam her face and make sure she don't have any residual product. The, she use a with-hazel toner.
Pure Cloud Cream - SKYN ICELAND She use the 'Pure Cloud Cream' from SKYN ICELAND but also some other beauty products from this brand. According the her, they have great face gels and eye gels too. She like to keep it quite simple and she don't wear a ton of makeup. She us a bit of foundation (Tinted Moisturizer - LAURA MERCIER), a thin line of eyeliner and mascara (They're Real! - BENEFIT).
Tinted Moisturizer - LAURA MERCIER This is one of Rose's must-haves, she use that a lot. She really like not having to do too much.
They're Real! - BENEFIT She also use some mascara because she needs a little help with her blonde eyelashes and she likes this one.
Rose McIver, Rahul Kohli and Malcolm Goodwin got new tattoos together to commemorate the series getting their fifth and final season.
If you remember, Rahul Kohli and Malcolm Goodwin had joked about getting a tattoo if the show was renewed – and it was! So they kept their word and went to a tattoo parlor. Rose McIver went there too and was also tattooed a little 'i' in honor of the series.
What was your greatest holiday?
Piha. Pretty much every summer growing up — often staying at the Peach family bach. So many wonderful memories.
And the worst? Well it was still a brilliant holiday, but my poor mum broke her shoulder visiting me in Canada last Christmas. That was a little rough. If we bump into you on holiday, what are you most likely to be doing? Slip, slop, slapping. Eating a Nice Block. Having a swim in the surf, but only ever waist deep — watching out for those rips.
If we could teleport you to one place in New Zealand for a week-long holiday, where would it be? God, we are spoilt for choice back home but today I'll say Hahei.
How about for a dream holiday internationally? I'm very keen to see Morocco. I love the food and the design I've seen from there, and would love to meet the people behind them.
What's the dumbest thing you've ever done when travelling? I left my passport in the toilets in Dubai when I was 18. I was on the way to Europe. An incredible woman who was cleaning the bathroom saved the day and raced it to the gate just in time for me to board (not in time to prevent my first-time-solo-traveller panic attack).
Aisle seat or window seat? Window. More leaning options.
Complete this sentence: I can't travel without ... Mosquito repellent and sunscreen. I am a heavy doser and really dread the imminent studies coming out showing what all the chemicals do to us.
What's the best travel tip you've ever been given? Don't bother taking a thousand photos of landmarks. You'll never look back at them and you'll miss the moment. And you can google way better pictures of them anyway.
What was the most memorable meal you've had while travelling? It's always the Marmite on Vogel's I have when I get back to New Zealand after a trip away. Such comfort food for me.
What's the best thing you've brought back from a trip? I bring back hats from pretty much everywhere I go. Winter, summer, whatever the weather, I end up needing one and I now have more than any one person should ever own.
Favourite airport at which to land? Auckland. By far. So smooth! After LAX every second week for the past four years, I have come to adore Auckland Airport like a fond friend.
What's the next trip you've got planned? I'm coming home for two and a half months to do a film called Daffodils. I haven't spent that long in New Zealand for years and years and it will give me a chance to get to some of the spots further down my to-do list that I've always wanted to get to.
What are some of your favourite places to shop (in the U.S. and New Zealand)? In New Zealand, my favourites are Juliette Hogan and RUBY. I absolutely love their lines; they have brilliant stuff. In terms of out here… I mean, all sorts. I walked into Barneys the other day, and that’s a dangerous place for me to be. I like little boutiques as well, like Mohawk General Store in Silver Lake, and there’s another one called Bucks & Does. Both carry a great range of designers and some braver choices that I wouldn’t necessarily make walking around a department store.
“I really like questions. I like people who write scripts because they're asking questions, not because they're giving answers. It's something that I look for.”
“The reason I feel like I act is because you get to live a million different lives in one. I don't have to go about my life, just being easy-going New Zealander Rose. Sometimes I can inhabit a feisty, vicious character. Sometimes I can inhabit a painfully shy British girl, or whatever it might be.”
“When I look at jobs, one of the most relevant questions I ask is, 'Is this something I've done before, or is it a chance to experience a new context, tone and relationship?' I also ask if it's a story worth telling and a character with a reason to exist... someone who reflects the human condition.”
“There are many projects that I would have loved to be a part of, but I was not high-profile enough, or I had the wrong look. That's just something you have to expect.”
“I don't really have a drive toward being a director at all. Not that I wouldn't rule it out, but I just don't think my instincts lie necessarily in a very visual way. But I am very interested in storytelling, narrative and character development, so writing is something that I absolutely want to do.”
“I had to do a Northern England accent once, and I didn't have much time, so I went and pored through YouTube. There are all sorts of resources out there. The Internet has made that much more affordable. Don't break your neck to spend your money.”
“Since I was growing up in New Zealand where there's a hole in the ozone layer above us, we get so much sun damage to our skin, and the thing we can do to look after ourselves is use sunscreen during the day, but making sure your skin is well hydrated while you sleep.”
“The best way to study to be an actor is to interact genuinely with the people around you and observe and listen.”
“I've been very lucky with my career and don't feel like I'm being typecast in the same role over and over again.”
“I'm really fortunate that I am in continuous work and I love what I do. And I think that there's a reason that it keeps happening. So while that keeps happening, I will be thrilled - and feel lucky - to keep doing it.”
“I think if I manage to juggle a personal life that I'm really happy with as well, as long as I manage to maintain balance, that's kind of the mark of success to me.”
“There is humor in the darkest of moments - People who I have loved and passed away, and very high stake situations where you can't help but laugh. I think that's very human.”
“Tinker Bell needs a Tinker Bell. She needs someone plotting for her. I certainly think that it's something she wants.”
“I'll use mascara because I need a little help with my blonde eyelashes. I like They're Real! by Benefit.”
“We can get carried away with our heads in books, and although there's so much to be learned from that, I think sitting in a cafe and speaking with someone - whatever it is, their mannerisms, their choices, are just as valuable as any class you can go to.”
“I do think of myself very strongly as a New Zealander, but when I moved out to the States, I was aware that I didn't want to just live in a satellite community of only other New Zealanders.”
“My most vivid memory - it's actually one of my first memories - I was three, and I was the youngest angel in the show production. And I remember being absolutely desperate for the toilet. I needed to wee really badly. So I was crossing my legs when I was walking down.”
“My mom used cold cream her whole life, and she's got great skin!”
“My motivation is to get a deeper understanding and exploration of something that I want to know about the human condition. So, that's what I look for in the material I read: if it's asking a genuine question about a concept of the world that interests me. And also, it helps if it's a context that I find interesting.”
“My school of thought with going into a character is that you have to understand where they come from, and you have to empathize with them.”
“I always think about the settlers who moved to New Zealand in the 1800s. They hadn't even been to the place before. They just packed their bags and shipped over knowing they'd never see their family again or be able to speak to them - they'd maybe get a letter if they were lucky.”
“When I was about five, I could do a vaguely decent American accent - straight through kind of decent - and 'Hercules' needed some kids. I definitely wasn't a good actor.”
“If you're small and can speak clearly and you're a cute kid, that's the craft, really. The whole child actor thing can be dangerous sometimes. Other kids were taking piano lessons; I did ballet and acting.”
“Writing is definitely something that interests me a lot.”
“What I love about my work is the variety and not knowing what's coming next, and being able to embrace something for a period of time and know something new is going to follow.”
“Being given a terrible piece of information shouldn't ruin the interactions you have with the people around you or mean that you can't become something, even if it's not the idea of what you thought you were going to be.”
“Allison Janney, I'm such a big fan of. Especially the way she conducts herself on a personal level, it's so beautiful. She's this fun, gracious person.”
“I don't ever want to feel like my whole life is laid out before me and I know exactly what's gonna happen. That would be so boring.”
“There's no use beating yourself up about what you can't change.”
“When you overcome a profound loss, or there's some catalyst in your life that shifts everything, if you're able to take it in stride and heal, it can make for much more three-dimensional and empathetic people.”
“Tinker Bell is a great wing woman. And as somebody pointed out to me, she is also a winged woman.”
“The great thing about being an actor in a film is that you're able to start knowing exactly where you're going to finish and really paint something in between. You can work to know the arc you need to build. Whereas in television, it is open-ended, and you're constantly guessing. There are pros and cons to both.”
“I work with a stylist called Devon Nuszer and a makeup artist called Aaron Barry, and between those two, I trust them implicitly. I have the things I do over and over again and that I feel safe with, but they inspire me to take risks, and I trust them so much.”
“Say a piece of pottery is broken, and it's fixed, and they use gold in the adhesive and in the sealant. It becomes more precious than it was before it was broken in the first place.”
“Really, I'm never much of a goal-setter. Whenever I've tried to make big, solid plans, they don't happen. I'm more into whatever the circumstances are that present themselves, making wise decisions around that.”
“My brother was scouted for a commercial when he was three, and it was just because he could speak clearly and was well behaved, basically. I don't think he had any amazing acting ability at that age - although he is actually a great actor.”
“I love having the laid-back, easy-going, family-priority nature of New Zealand, but I'm certainly enjoying the States in terms of the career opportunities and the enthusiasm I get to find work.”
“I've done a lot of drama, and as a lifestyle, going to work and laughing every day is just great. It's great for your mental health, and it's great for setting up a nice year.”
“I bring ideas to set, and I'm more than willing for those to be affected and be malleable based on what the other person gives me. I don't know what another actor is going to give me, on the day, and I don't want to be so hard and fast in my technique that I'm not open to what's coming.”
“I also have a role model back in New Zealand, a woman called Miranda Harcourt. She's an actress and a writer. Her willingness to stay open to material is really great. I read a lot, and I try to watch and listen to diverse material.”
“I feel honoured. Everyone in the cast brought so much to the film in so many different ways.” (about The Lovely Bones)
“Peter Jackson is a talented, wonderful man, He’s also very down to earth. (about The Lovely Bones)
“And it was brilliant to have my mum and dad there with me.” (about The Lovely Bones filming)
“I’m excited about whatever work may come next, I am very open to doing a variety of things in my life.”“I truly can’t imagine being anywhere else. I’m so happy here.” (about living in Auckland)
