Aussies! Nim's Island and Wendy and Bindi!
« on: August 12, 2012, 03:27 AM »
How wonderful that Australia's Wendy Orr gets another movie based on her Nim books and how amazing that Bindi Irwin gets to star in this one!

A quick interview with Bindi: http://www.news.com.au/entertainment/movies/bindi-irwin-hopes-to-make-her-dad-proud-with-new-film-role/story-e6frfmvr-1226447824927

Normally I get annoyed when actors are given roles which are actually just themselves (Charlie Sheen, David Duchovny, most notably) but in this case, the role IS Bindi Irwin and I'm really pleased for both Bindi and Wendy.  :)
