BWAHAHA! You thought you'd heard the last of it lo these many years ago, but IT'S BACK, BOYS AND GIRLS!

(I'm not going to start on the extreme difficulty I had in finding a clip or trailer for Alice in Wonderland where you get to hear Alice actually *speak* I'm not, I'm not, I'm not.)

Australian Actors #10: Mia Wasikowska



Born: Canberra, ACT, 1989.
Left Australia: 2007
Career went international: Arguably after being cast in the USAmerican TV series In Treatment, although a supporting role in Defiance was probably her big breakthrough.
Now lives: Given the amount of work she's doing in the US at the moment, I'm going to assume she has a base in LA, but am up for advisement if anyone has sharper Google-fu than I.
Best known as: Alice, Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland
Assumed accents: RP, standard USAmerican.

This is what Mia Wasikowska sounds like when she's working:

Transpacific, is what she sounds like, mostly. Not that I'm judging that -- deity-of-yr-choice knows I do the same thing, just pointed in a more UK-wards direction, and it's just as much a defence mechanism to get people to understand you and/or stop mocking you/annoying you with stupid questions as it is to do with assimilation. Still, it's interesting -- I wonder if you'd spot her as an Australian if you didn't know what you were listening for (the fact that she says 'rooly' and 'sumthink' is still a dead giveaway to my ear!).

Next week, I'm totally doing Nick Cave. Tee hee, snigger, snigger, etc.
