A generation of Australians have conquered Hollywood, and this collection showcases the wealth and diversity of talent they bring to both sides of the camera. The A-list of stars includes critically acclaimed actor Geoffrey Rush, big and small screen actress Portia di Rossi, character actor Hugo Weaving, award-winning director Phillip Noyce, and blockbuster star Nicole Kidman. In-depth interviews are provided in which the stars describe the glamour as well as the business of Hollywood, how they shot—or climbed—to the top, and how they've dealt with fame. Some, it is revealed, ambitiously pursued fame while for others Hollywood came knocking. Moving beyond personal stories, the book explores why so many of the best and brightest of Oz have risen to stardom in the States. Filled with red carpet moments and board room details, this thoughtful exposé sheds new light on a trend that shows no signs of letting up.

"Uncovers the dimension and human side of a culture generally pigeonholed by many Americans as dusty, archaic and rough." —Flickhead


"Fresh, candid voices...provide an almost cross-cultural perspective of the Hollywood journey to the top."  —The Bloomsbury Review
