Interview – Origin Magazine

Robert Piper: What inspires you? 

Rose McIver: I am inspired by working professionals who find lots of time for family and friends. It is easy to get caught up in a career, and I personally aspire to maintain strong connections with the people who matter most to me. I think having healthy relationships makes me feel much more confident and available to do good work as an actor.

RP: How do you stay healthy?

RM: I make time to exercise at least four times a week. I mix up running, yoga, barre classes, and rock-climbing to get a full workout. I also follow my mum and dad’s nutritional advice and eat a variety of colors on my plate. Plenty of fruit and vegetables.

RP: What is one of the hardest obstacles you’ve had to overcome in your life?

RM: I really struggled moving from New Zealand to the United States. I still have very strong ties to my home, and it took me a couple of years to feel settled in Los Angeles. Fortunately, I have a great group of friends and found the places where I enjoy spending my time. Finding beaches to get to made me feel much more plugged into the environment here.

RP: How do you stay balanced?

RM: I always find time to read novels and poetry as well as scripts; I like to enjoy different kinds of storytelling. I spend time at the beach and with my loved ones. I like traveling to unfamiliar places to challenge my perspectives and glean wisdom from other ways of life. Exercise is great for endorphins, and I come from a very outdoorsy upbringing, so that means a lot to me. It is so important to remember that, while I love my job, there are other fantastic avenues to explore in my life.

RP: What projects are you working on?

RM: I am mere days away from finishing shooting our first season of iZombie. It’s a zombie drama-comedy written by the wonderful Diane Ruggiero-Wright and Rob Thomas. I am so excited for it to start airing on March 17 on The CW. It has been a wild ride, and I think we’ve made something really special.


My name is Stéphanie - creator, webmaster and social medias manager of The Rose McIver Fansite (known as Rose McIver Source). I have been a french fan of Rose since a decade. Way back in 2013, I noticed there were no French or English website supporting her projects or promoting her amazing work – that's why I decided to create this fansite, in English to reach a larger audience. I started following Rose in my early twenties, here I am in my thirties, even more enthusiastic to share everything related to her career.​ I had the opportunity to meet Rose three times. In May 2017, at the 'Fairy Tales 5' con in Paris. In February 2020, virtually during "Empire's Virtual Hangout 4". In May 2023, I went to Germany to meet Rose again.
