    Melanie Lynskey Heavenly Creatures, The Changeover

    Miranda was absolutely invaluable during my audition for Heavenly Creatures. In the course of just a few hours, she managed to help me give a performance that would convince Peter and Fran to trust me with such a difficult role. She taught me about screen acting, and gave me techniques that not only could my 15-year-old self easily
    understand and put into practice, but that I am still using in my work today. She helped me bring the intensity and emotion out of myself that the role required in a way that didn't damage me emotionally- she had a great understanding of what I was mature enough to
    handle, and pushed me without ever being scary or pushy, just
    supportive and encouraging.
