After earning top accolades for her Australian film and stage work, MIRANDA OTTO (Mary Ann) rose to fame as the warrior Eowyn in "Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers” and "Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.” She also recently starred opposite Dennis Quaid in "Flight of the Phoenix,” in the New Zealand film "In My Father's Den,” and in "Through My Eyes,” a miniseries for Australian television.

Otto also starred in "Danny Deckchair,” which re-teamed her with Rhys Ifans after co-starring with Ifans in the Charlie Kaufman-written film, "Human Nature.”

Otto garnered rave reviews in the spring of 2002 for her portrayal of Nora Helmer in the Sydney Theatre Company's production of the Henrik Ibsen classic "A Doll's House.”
