About Magda Szubanski

Magda Szubanski is one of Australia’s most loved and respected actors, writers and activists. In 2017 she was made an Officer of the Order of Australia for her distinguished service to the performing arts and as a campaigner for marriage equality.

She has written and performed in some of Australia’s most iconic films and TV shows including Babe, Kath and Kim, Fast Forward, D-Generation, Full Frontal, Something Stupid and Big Girl’s Blouse, winning her the Fred Parsons Award for Outstanding Contribution to Australian Comedy at the 2019 AWGIES.

In addition to her acting work, in October 2015 Magda released her hugely successful first book, Reckoning, which has won several major awards including the 2016 ABIA Book of the Year.

In 2017 Magda became the unofficial public face of the Marriage Equality debate. She campaigned fiercely on this issue on TV, radio and in newspapers and magazines as well as appearing at rallies across the country. Her contribution was deemed “crucial” and she was named the most talked about person of 2017. She was awarded the Liberty Victoria “Voltaire Award” for Free Speech.

She is a regular contributor to several television shows including The Project, The Today Show, Sunrise, ABC Breakfast, A Current Affair, The Morning Show, Mornings and Studio10 among others.
