A young Brimbank actor is all set to pass her toughest screen test yet.
Victoria Giannarakis will light up the screen at Hawthorn’s Lido Cinemas after winning a role in the Australian psychological horror flick, Atonia.
In the film, Victoria plays a ray of sunshine in the otherwise bleak world of the main character, Jack, who is haunted by the ghostly presence of a disturbed woman.
“The girl I play is the younger sister of Jack and she represents all the happiness in his life,” Victoria said.
“It was a really challenging role to play because everyone else was playing really sad roles and I had to go against the atmosphere and stay upbeat.”
While the role was challenging, the 11-year-old already has a wealth of experience.
“I’ve had 12 roles in my career and got to work with some amazing people like Rhonda Burchmore,” she said.
“Acting is something I definitely want to keep doing. I’d like to study some theatrical subjects like musical theatre in the future too.”
Atonia will open at the Lido Cinemas on Sunday, March 11.
