A proud Larrakia Tiwi woman, Miranda has been an advocate for Indigenous culture and rights, having notably called for more “beautiful people of colour” on TV in one of her Logies speeches.

Gracing our screens for over 10 years, the 34-year old has had a diverse career and numerous stand-out performances: her roles in The Sapphires and Love Child to name a couple. We wish Miranda all the best as she embarks on her greatest role, as mother to Grace. Congratulations Miranda and James!
