Miranda Otto

Miranda Otto is an Australian actress born 16 December 1967. She is an actress, known for War of the Worlds (2005), The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002) and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003). She has been married to Peter O’Brien since January 1, 2003. They have one child.

Miranda Otto began her acting career at age 18 in 1986 and has appeared in a variety of independent and major studio films. Otto made her major film debut in Emma’s War, in which she played a teenager who moves to Australia’s bush country during World War II.

Miranda Otto’s first post-graduation film role in 1991, as Nell Tiscowitz in The Girl Who Came Late, was her breakthrough role, which brought her to the attention of the Australian film industry and the general public. In the film, directed by Kathy Mueller, she starred as a young woman who could communicate with horses. Her appearance garnered Otto her first Australian Film Institute nomination for Best Actress the following year.

Miranda Otto’s next role was in the film The Last Days of Chez Nous, which portrayed the complex relationships between the members of an Australian family. The film earned Otto her second Australian Film Institute nomination, this time for Best Supporting Actress. Miranda Otto began to doubt her career choice as she failed to get the parts for which she auditioned in 1995. She fled to her home in Newcastle for almost a year, during which she painted her mother’s house. In 1996, director Shirley Barrett cast Otto as a shy waitress in the film Love Serenade.

In 1999, Miranda Otto was cast as Éowyn in The Lord of the Rings film trilogy, after Uma Thurman turned down the role. Director Peter Jackson cast her immediately after viewing the audition video she had filmed in Australia. Otto’s next project was the Australian television miniseries Through My Eyes: The Lindy Chamberlain Story in 2004. The film is a drama that portrays the story of Lindy Chamberlain, who was convicted in 1982 of killing her baby daughter, Azaria, in one of Australia’s most publicized murder trials.

In 2007, Miranda Otto starred as Cricket Stewart, the wife of a successful director, in the television miniseries The Starter Wife. That same year, she was cast in the American television series Cashmere Mafia. Otto will star opposite Stephanie Sigman and Anthony LaPaglia in Annabelle: Creation, directed by David F. Sandberg. The film is scheduled to be released on May 19, 2017.
