This week Wendy Harmer takes the drive back down memory lane with Julia Zemiro meeting her right outside the place where her comedy career was born - the site of the Last Laugh cafe in Melbourne.

In this warm and witty episode of Home Delivery, Julia travels to the Northern Territory to meet Miranda Tapsell in the heart of the glorious Kakadu National Park. As an only child growing up in the tiny town of Jabiru, Miranda tells that she was regularly “subjected to bushwalking”. She developed a love of performing from a very young age, and joined the Jabiru Tappers at age six, and delighted her parents with an endless series of plays starring her friends and stuffed toys.

They visit Jabiru Area School, where Miranda recalls that a visit by Aaron Pedersen ignited a dream of taking up a career as an actor. She also relates that a troubling episode of racial bullying shattered her carefree childhood.

The family moved to Darwin for the final years of Miranda’s schooling, so she and Julia take a road trip to the big smoke. They visit Darwin High School where Miranda performed in plays and musicals in the school’s astonishing amphitheatre.

It was here that Miranda seriously started to plan an acting career. She tells Julia about attending summer courses at NIDA and seeing a stage performance of the Sapphires. From that moment on Miranda wanted nothing more than to be a ‘Sapphire’.

On a headland overlooking the beautiful Mindil Beach, Julia and Miranda talk about her courageous acceptance speech at the 2015 Logie awards, when Miranda challenged the Australian television industry to put more people of colour on our screens, and they reflect on her journey from a small Kakadu town to the red carpet at Cannes.

PRODUCTION DETAILS:
A Cordell Jigsaw Zapruder production. Presenter and co-producer Julia Zemiro. CJZ Executive Producer Nick Murray. CJZ Executive Producer / Director Damian Davis. ABC Executive Producer Richard Huddleston. ABC Head of Entertainment Jon Casimir.
