Gallery Updates   Picnic at Hanging Rock   Screencaptures
written by Sara   |   November 19, 2018

The novel Picnic at Hanging Rock is by many considered one of the best Australian novels of all time, and earlier this year, Samara could be seen in a TV mini-series based on the iconic story! She portrayed Irma Leopold in the 6 episodes long show, which was released on May 25th, 2018. The show tells the story of what happens when three schoolgirls and their governesses mysteriously disappear on Valentines Day in 1900, and stars Natalie Dormer, Lily Sullivan, Lola Bessis and Madeleine Madden alongside Samara. If you haven’t seen it yet, it’s an absolute must! Even putting my bias aside, Samara was one of the definite highlights – she really blew me away, and it’s probably her strongest performance yet.

Our gallery now has over 2,000 gorgeous HD screen captures for you of Samara as Irma. The show was visually stunning, so pretty much every screencap is like art – and Samara looked incredible in every episode! I have also updated our iconvault with some forum icons from the show, which you can find here. I’ll try to make some twitter avatars later this week, but I hope you enjoy these new additions for now!

Hester Appleyard purchases an isolated mansion out in the Australian bush to transform into a school for young ladies – a few months later, Appleyard College is a success. On Valentine’s Day, 1900, when students and staff go for a picnic to Hanging Rock, three of the school’s star students and their governess mysteriously vanish. Their disappearance leaves a devastating impact on students, staff, their enigmatic and formidable headmistress and the township at large. Theories abound, secrets are exposed and hysteria sets in, until eventually, the lives of the characters unravel.

Hello Samara fans! During our downtime, Samara was in Auckland, New Zealand, to film her upcoming action comedy “Guns Akimbo”.

From the beaches of Home and Away to the powerful Oscar-nominated film, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, Samara Weaving has come a long way. Now, the Adelaide-born actress is reprising her role as a Bonds ambassador by fronting our new sweats campaign for Bonds Originals. As one of a diverse tribe of Aussie originators, including music superstar Flume and international model Duckie Thot, Samara is killing it globally in their respective industries. We caught up with the yoga-loving, tea-guzzling 26-year-old to ask her all about what it’s like to be a woman working in Hollywood today.

What do you love most about what you do?

I love the opportunities I’ve been given to play strong female roles set in unique and different worlds and settings. In SMILF (Showtime) my character Nelson is naïve and oblivious to the ramifications of her sexuality. I admire Frankie Shaw for choosing to make this character layered and different. The baby daddy’s new girlfriend could easily have been jealous and selfish but instead, Nelson wants what’s best for her new family. And she’s flawed too. She puts her foot in her mouth and makes wrong choices. Every character she writes has curious depth and dimensions. I admire Frankie and the team for that.

What does a typical day look like for you?

I don’t think there’s such a thing as a typical day for me. That’s part of why I love my job. One day I could be stabbing a guy in the head covered in fake blood, another day I’ll be trying not to laugh in a scene with the cast from SMILF. They’re all so hilariously talented it’s difficult not to. Another day I’m spending ten hours in a corset with my best friends pretending to be a posh aristocrat in the 1900’s.

As written in our previous post, Samara is the covergirl of Qantas Magazine‘s QStyle issue this month. Following the beautiful photoshoot outtakes added yesterday, I have now added high quality digital scans of the spread to our gallery! I have also typed up the article, which you can read below. Samara discusses rising to fame, the hardest parts of being an actress, her hometown Sydney and her current hometown Los Angeles.

Samara Weaving is the type of person who’d bristle at the word “journey”. But if anyone’s been on one, it’s her. The 26-year-old niece of acclaimed Australian actor Hugo Weaving was born in Adelaide and raised all over Asia and Europe by her academic parents before spending four years on the fictional streets of Home and Away’s Summer Bay (like Isla Fisher and Chris Hemsworth before her). Since then she’s ping-ponged between Australia and the United States, officially relocating to Los Angeles after landing the lead role (of a murderous babysitter) in Netflix’s 2017 horror-comedy smash The Babysitter.A buzz has trailed Weaving ever since,growing louder after her small but memorable part in the awards-season steamroller Three Billboards Outside Ebbing,Missouri opposite Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson and Sam Rockwell. Then there was her on-point portrayal of an irritatingly perfect girlfriend in the breakout hit SMILF (the second season is currently in production), a raw and honest dramedy about a twenty something single mum. Later this year, Weaving will star as ill-fated schoolgirl Irma Leopold in the television adaptation of Australian classic Picnic at Hanging Rock alongside Game of Thrones alum Natalie Dormer – a series so hotly anticipated that it sparked a network bidding war in the US. On an increasingly rare visit home, Weaving took time out to dress up and talk shop.

You’ve become very visible very quickly…
Once I’d booked The Babysitter– which was on The Black List [a list of the most hyped but as-yet-unproduced scripts in Hollywood] for years – it felt like I finally had my foot in the door. I’ve been in the industry for 10 years and not having to jump through as many hoops when it comes to auditions is really refreshing.
