recently talked to Woman’s Weekly
magazine about what she went through to get into role of Donna Hall, who she played, in ‘Stolen – The Baby Kahu Story
‘ the TV dramatisation about the real life kidnapping of baby Kahu.
Miriama spoke about having to go through changes in diet, lifestyle, hair… It is quiet interesting to read to see how she got into her role. Here is an extract:
“I have played mothers before, but Donna is the kind of woman you don’t come across often… I think she can be quite a polarising character,” she says. “She doesn’t suffer fools gladly, she knows what she wants and basically she just moves forward in life – she doesn’t sit there worrying about what people might think.”

There are lovely reviews on 3news.co.nz
on The Vagina Monologues
, in particular, they mention both Beth Allen’s
and Antonia Prebble’s
performance in the production.
Here’s what 3news.co.nz said about Antonia Prebble:
With sass and spunk Antonia Prebble delivered a great monologue on the angry vagina. She listed her character’s reasons and summed up that a more vagina-friendly world would eliminate tampons, g-strings and the chilling unpleasantness of visits to the gynaecologist.
And on Beth Allen:
Beth Allen deftly portrayed pain, confusion and panic during one of her monologues when her character feared she’d lost her clitoris. There was a happy ending to the tale however and again Allen captured the elation and joy of her character’s freedom and empowerment.
Gabrielle Henderson, Jodie Rimmer and Rachel Nash are also mentioned in the review as they feature in the same ‘shift’ as Beth and Antonia in The Vagina Monologues.
The Stuff.co.nz review said the following: “Last night I was lucky enough to stumble upon Brooke from Shortland Street (Beth Allen) with the bonus of Loretta from Outrageous Fortune (Antonia Prebble). Both were very engaging, as were the other ladies who joined them – Gabrielle Henderson, Rachel Nash and Jodie Rimmer”.
With thanks to Jess of AntoniaPrebble.com for the info and to BethAllen.Webs.

(Shortland Streets Brooke Freeman/Tribe’s Amber) has given an insight to her opening night of The Vagina Monologues
Had my opening night for The Vagina Monologues last night, and it was AWESOME. Lots of lovely women in the audience who were so kind to us all on stage. After hours (and hours) of legwork, I was reminded of why we put this production together; giving myself (and others) the thrill of being on stage! It’s addictive. :) …
