Yesterday from Teresa Palmer's Twitter

"I have to not take myself too seriously and I have to realise that if it is meant to be, it will be."
Movies Ride Like a Girl

HERALD SUN – AUSSIE actor Teresa Palmer has been cast as inspirational Melbourne Cup winning jockey Michelle Payne in the movie about her historic 2015 triumph.

Ride Like a Girl is the story about Payne becoming the first female jockey to win our most coveted race on Prince of Penzance.

Sam Neill will play Payne’s father Paddy while Jacki Weaver has landed the role of Payne’s manager Joan Sadler.

The film, due for release around the Spring Carnival next year, is the feature debut for Oscar-nominated actor Rachel Griffiths.

Payne gave her endorsement to the cast and Palmer, who has appeared in Warm Bodies, the re-make of Point Break and the Mel Gibson-directed war film Hacksaw Ridge.

“Couldn’t be happier with the choice in you @teresapalmer — I loved the script, very excited for the times ahead!” Payne said.

Payne added she hoped her brother Stevie would make the cut as well.

Palmer posted on her own social media this iconic quote from Payne: “I just want to say to everyone else to ‘get stuffed’ if they think women aren’t strong enough, because we just beat the world.”

Palmer added: “Michelle was always warned she could never be a world class jockey. She was not tough enough. She was not a man. Then she won the 2015 Melbourne Cup (on Prince of Penzance), one of the most prestigious horse races in the world.”

Director Griffiths flew to Europe in May to raise money for the high budget film.

She has also been seen at Flemington doing site inspections.

Griffiths said she had been waiting years to find a story such as Payne’s.

“She’s been really wonderful, she entrusted us with it. I’m sure that would be terrifying to someone. I just keep saying to her, I want to make an absolutely beautiful movie that inspires girls for generations. Her job is to do what she loves. My job is to tell her story in a way that she’ll be proud of me for doing. She’s a beautiful girl, a wonderful person, and they’re a remarkable family.”

A Discovery of Witches Television

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY – A Discovery of Witches, based on the best-selling All Souls Trilogy from Deborah Harkness, has found its Matthew and Diana.

British actor Matthew Goode, known best for his roles in period pieces like The Imitation Game and an arc on Downton Abbey, and Australian actress Teresa Palmer (Hacksaw Ridge), will headline the upcoming series from Bad Wolf Television.

Capitalizing on the trend of developing best-selling fantasy novels for television, Bad Wolf Television is producing A Discovery of Witches for the small screen. Bad Wolf is the production company of former Doctor Who producers Jane Tranter and Julie Gardner.

Harkness will also executive produce, and Kate Brooke (Mr. Selfridge, The Forsyte Saga) will head up the writing team and act as showrunner.

Tuesday’s highly-anticipated casting news is six years in the making; A Discovery of Witches debuted in 2011. Producers touted it heavily on social media, including teasing the announcement on Instagram.

British television giant Sky will air the series in the U.K., and a U.S. network will be announced in the coming weeks. The series is slated to begin shooting its first season on location in Great Britain this fall.

A Discovery of Witches follows Diana Bishop, a science historian who also just happens to be a witch with a troubling past that has led her to suppress her magical tendencies. When her research leads her to uncover a mysterious missing manuscript in Oxford’s Bodleian Library, she sets in motion a series of events that will lead her on an adventure across time and continents to discover the secrets of her past and the truth about the origin of magical beings (which includes witches, vampires, and daemons). Along the way, Diana also encounters and falls in love with Matthew Clairmont, a scientist and vampire with a murky past of his own.

Articles and Interviews

AUDI MAGAZINE – During the opening weekend of this year’s Audi Hamilton Island Race Week, actor Teresa Palmer has been announced as the brand’s newest ambassador, at a celebration marking 20 years of the Audi Australia ambassador program.

It’s a long way from Adelaide to Hollywood. Growing up in council housing, working at a burger franchise and in Adelaide’s Rundall Mall shopping centre are not the obvious prerequisites for a career in film, and yet that’s the route Teresa Palmer took to not only arrive in Hollywood, but make a name for herself and stay there.

As fairytale and as simple as it sounds, the road has not been an easy one, but despite hardship and some disappointment along the way, Teresa, named after Mother Teresa, has applied the basic principles of hard work and sheer determination. The combination, along with no small amount of obvious natural talent have paid off, and her list of film credits continues to grow and become more and more impressive, and to the actor herself, more satisfying and fulfilling.

The hard road has been as much a blessing as anything else, says Palmer, and has kept her grounded as her career has taken her to places she never dreamed of.

“When things started to happen and I was working in America, it was such a whirlwind that it felt surreal and I was just waiting for it all to end,” she says.

“I just thought I’d eventually go back to Adelaide and to my teaching degree, but then it just kept going and a few years in I realised that this was my new reality.”

And what a reality it is, the actor building an impressive and incredibly diverse body of work that has seen her explore roles from romantic comedy and drama to action and suspense, to sci-fi and horror.

She displays all of the characteristics of a true chameleon, without the need to transform her look with extensive makeup and costume, such is her talent to ‘become’ the character.

From an alien in I am Number Four, to a girl who falls for a zombie in Warm Bodies, to a woman held hostage in the phycological thriller, The Berlin Syndrome, Palmer is not likely to be typecast any time soon.

Perhaps her biggest role to date, that of Desmond Doss’ wife in Mel Gibson’s award-winning drama Hacksaw Ridge, again saw her step out of her comfort zone and in the process widespread critical acclaim and nominations for Best Actress (Australian Film Critics Association Awards), Best Actress in a Leading Role (Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts – AACTA) and Best International Supporting Actress (AACTA).

“I gravitate towards lots of different types of scripts,” she says “That lends itself to going deeper within my craft and pushing the boundaries and I think it’s in those challenging moments when you’re not feeling completely comfortable within a character that you do your best work,” says Palmer.

Every new project is chosen on its merits, whether the attraction be the script, director or the opportunity to work with the other cast members – or a combination of all three.
