    Comment from director (2015):

    "Many thanks for your brilliant work, your upbeat, positive attitude and your sparkling artistic talent! Truly hope to work with you again."

    Comment from director in audience (2014):

    "You led from the front and gave the whole thing a grace and stability"

    Comment from writer (2012):

    "You acted it beautifully in a way to really amplify the emotion of the piece. It was lovely to meet you and I hope you will be able to work with us in the future."

    Comment from director (2009):

    "Thanks once again - [client] now viewing cut piece. It looks excellent!"

    Comment from director (2007):

    "You were exceptional, I thank you on behalf of myself and crew. I could not have asked for more."

    Review for 'Blood Wedding' (2005):

    "... Miranda Harrison is powerful as the mother who has lost too many men to quick tempers, hot blood and the blade... the final scene of the three women ... has considerable impact, and says so much about the ways of men and the women left behind."

    About me

    Experienced actress (stage, screen, TV); experienced voiceover artist (film narration, educational audio, corporate videos); on Spotlight; member of Equity. Organiser and host of Page to Stage (new writing showcase). Having begun to establish my acting career, I then did the LSDA course (see above) to broaden my skill set and make new connections. Since then, I have taken on many new roles and challenges.
