Australian Actors #7: Miranda Otto


Photobucket


Born: Brisbane, QLD, 1967.
Mildly interesting trivia: Her dad, Barry Otto, is a reasonably famous domestic actor (Strictly Ballroom, Cosi).
Left Australia: Still lives there.
Career went international: After being cast alongside Harrison Ford in What Lies Beneath, 2000. Hollywood status affirmed after playing Eowyn in The Two Towers and The Return of the King, now doing mainstream US television (the ill-fated Cashmere Mafia)
Now lives: Sydney, NSW.
Best known as: Eowyn from the Lord of the Rings films, the mother from Tom Cruise's War of the Worlds remake, the neighbour's wife from What Lies Beneath.
Assumed accents: RP*, US-American.

* ETA: Well, it's supposed to be Rohanese (Rohirric?), but as we all know, Everyone In Middle Earth Speaks RP Except For Sam, The Orcs And, For Some Reason, Pippin.

This is what Mirando Otto sounds like when she's working:

Wow, she's actually a lot broader than I thought she was - which just makes her acting even more awesome!
