Miranda Harcourt

Actor

Miranda Harcourt's career has seen many notable excursions into screen work — from finding early fame on beloved soap Gloss to ambitious big screen drama For Good, which she acted in and helped produce. In 2017 she made fantasy The Changeover, with her husband Stuart McKenzie. As an acting coach, Harcourt has worked with everyone from Melanie Lynskey to Nicole Kidman.  

Some of the world's best actors Skype her at home in Wellington at 4am, where, through a laptop propped on the family's ironing board, she helps them tackle the day ahead. Suzanne McFadden, in an NZ Herald article on Miranda Harcourt's work as an acting coach, 1 August 2015
