About Miranda Harcourt
Miranda brings to her work as a screen-acting coach a diverse range of experiences: — acclaimed stage and screen actor — Head of Acting and Screen at Toi Whakaari – NZ Drama School (2000 – 2007) — acting coach on a number of international feature films – e.g. Bridge to Terabithia (Best Actress 2008 Young Artist Awards) directed by Gabor Csupo; Bright Star directed by Jane Campion; and Under the Mountain directed by Jonathan King.

"Leslie could never have come in full bloom without the freedom and life you showed me. You pulled Leslie out of me and I would never have won the award without your help. Thank you so much! I really hope we can do many more films together." AnnaSophia Robb (Bridge to Terabithia) Winner: Best Actress 2008 Young Artists’ Awards. Finalist: Best Actress 2008 Critics’ Choice Awards
"Her energy, tenacity and goal oriented nature was a breath of fresh air. She’s a talent and a delight. I hope I get to work with her again soon. She’s the stitch in time." Lauren Levine (producer – Bridge to Terabithia) Winner: Best Film, Best Ensemble Cast, Best Actress, Best Actor 2008 Young Artists’ Awards "
Miranda worked intensely with Melanie Lynskey to help her find the character and win the role of Pauline Parker in Heavenly Creatures.
"She got great results quickly!" Fran Walsh and Peter Jackson (Heavenly Creatures)
"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." Melanie Lynskey (Heavenly Creatures, Two and a Half Men)
"I just had the best audition I have ever done yesterday and it’s all thanks to you. Every audition I have done up til now has been absolute poos! So thank you so much for an awesome course – you ROCK!!" 2008 Adult student
"Best workshop ever!" 2008 Teen student
