Rose McIver’s expansive talent and ability to seamlessly transition between comedy and drama have solidified the New Zealand native’s place in the global entertainment landscape. McIver currently stars in GHOSTS, now entering its fourth season.


GHOSTS follows Sam Arondekar (McIver) and her husband, Jay (Utkarsh Ambudkar), as they transform their recently inherited country estate into a bed-and-breakfast, while co-existing with spirits of previous residents – whom only Sam can see and hear. The critically acclaimed series was the most-watched freshman broadcast comedy in 2021. GHOSTS was nominated for a 2023 Critics Choice Award for Best Comedy Series. In 2022, the show received Television Critics Association Awards nominations for Outstanding New Program and Outstanding Achievement in Comedy. Most recently, GHOSTS was nominated for the People’s Choice Awards for the sci-fi/fantasy show of the year. In addition to the show nominations, McIver was nominated for the 2024 Saturn Awards for Best Actress in a Television Series and the 2024 Critics Choice Super Awards for Best Actress in a Horror Series, Limited Series or Made-for-TV Movie.


McIver made her directorial debut with the short film “To the Death,” which premiered at the LA Shorts Festival in 2023. “To the Death” tackles the complex issue of diversity in the entertainment industry and scarcity mentality through a dark comedy following two South Asian actors fighting for the same role because it’s impossible to have more than one brown person on a show. It was nominated at Atlanta ShortsFest for Best Dark Comedy in 2023.


Previously, McIver starred as Liv Moore on The CW’s “iZombie,” which ran for five seasons (2015-2019). Additionally, she recurred as Vivian Scully on Showtime’s “Masters of Sex” (2013-2014). On the film side, McIver most recently appeared in “Next Exit,” which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2022 and was released in November 2022. McIver starred in the Netflix rom-com “A Christmas Prince” in 2017 and appeared in the franchise sequels “A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding” (2018) and “A Christmas Prince: The Royal Baby” (2019). Previously, McIver starred alongside Saoirse Ronan in Peter Jackson’s “The Lovely Bones” (Paramount, 2009).


McIver grew up in Titirangi, New Zealand. She started working at a young age, booking commercials and appearing in Jane Campion’s “The Piano” at age three. She spent much of her youth studying dance.
