Acting Coach Work
For the last decade, Miranda has coached for screen internationally and at home in NZ, including Garth Davis' Lion and Mary Magdalene, Jane Campion’s Bright Star and Top of the Lake, Gabor Csupo’s Bridge to Terabithia, Peter Jackson’s The Lovely Bones and many New Zealand films.
Sometimes she prep-coaches one actor for their role, as she does for Nicole Kidman. Sometimes she is dedicated to one or two particular performances — for example, Rose McIver and Carolyn Dando in The Lovely Bones. Sometimes she is a rehearsal coach supporting the director as in Bright Star and Top of the Lake. Sometimes she coaches actors in ADR — for example on Taika Waititi’s Boy. And sometimes she coaches the entire young cast — for example on Lion, Mary Magdalene or Bridge to Terabithia.
