Actor Pua Magasiva, known for his roles on Power Rangers and New Zealand soap Shortland Street, has died.
The body of Magasiva, 38, was found early on Saturday morning in a Wellington home, and police have confirmed there were no suspicious circumstances.

The soap’s Twitter page confirmed the actor’s passing, writing: ‘We are all absolutely devastated at the tragic news regarding Pua Magasiva.
‘Pua was a much-loved member of the South Pacific Pictures’ family for many years and our hearts and thoughts go out to Pua’s family at this time.’
