AFI award-winning actor Pia Miranda has starred in some of the best film, television and stage productions this country has ever created, but now she’s taking on a role unlike no other: Champion Survivor.
Best known for her role as Josie in the classic Australian coming of age movie, Looking For Alibrandi, Pia is throwing away the script and diving into a wild new challenge.
This mum of two may appear like an easy target to her competitors, but Pia is hiding a secret weapon: she’s a Survivor Superfan and knows how this game gets played.
On joining the cast of Australian Survivor: Champions V Contenders, Pia said: “I have been watching Survivor since the first season in 2000 and I’ve been sitting on the couch for almost 20 years saying I could win, so I guess now is my chance! I really want to play as a fan and be someone that a fan would enjoy watching.”
But tuning into past seasons isn’t the only preparation Pia has been doing to make sure she’s Survivor-ready. As part of her daily training, Pia has been swimming, doing yoga, practicing puzzles and making fire.
Alibrandi no more. Pia has come to play.
Premiering on Wednesday, 24 July at 7.30pm, the fourth season ofAustralian Survivor: Champions V Contenders is hosted by Jonathan LaPaglia and is made for Network 10 by Endemol Shine Australia.
