Victoria Hill (Myra Brooks)
Victoria Hill wears many hats: actress, producer, writer. In FIRST REFORMED, by seminal screenwriter/director Paul Schrader (Raging Bull, Taxi Driver), Hill appears in the pivotal role of Esther starring opposite Oscar-nominated actor Ethan Hawke (Boyhood, Training Day). The film made its World Premiere in Competition at the 2017 Venice Film Festival and was selected for the Masters Section of the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival. Hill co-produced the film on behalf of Fibonacci Films where she is a Principal and Head of Production.
Hill recently completed filming on location in New York on the film THE CHAPERONE. Based on Laura Moriarty’s best-selling novel and adapted for the screen by Academy Award®-winning writer Julian Fellowes (GOSFORD PARK, Downton Abbey), the film stars Academy Award®-nominated actress Elizabeth McGovern as a Wichita, Kansas woman whose life is forever changed when she chaperones the 15-year-old, yet-to-be famous silent-movie star of 1920s ‘Flapper’ fame, Louise Brooks (Haley Lu Richardson, THE EDGE OF SEVENTEEN) to New York for the summer. Hill plays Myra Brooks, Louise’s narcissistic mother. Miranda Otto, Campbell Scott and Golden Globe nominated actress Blythe Danner also star; Michael Engler directs. Hill is also a producer on THE CHAPERONE on behalf of Fibonacci Films.
Hill began her career as one of the founding members of South Australia’s prestigious theatre company Brink Productions where she performed and produced new theatrical work as well as commissioning new translations and adaptations of established pieces.
With controversial director Geoffrey Wright (Romper-Stomper), Hill co-wrote the screenplay and co-produced the film MACBETH, a contemporary Australian retelling of William Shakespeare's play set in the ganglands of Melbourne. Hill also starred as Lady Macbeth opposite Sam Worthington’s MACBETH. The film screened at the 2006 Toronto International Film Festival.
Hill has starred in numerous other film and television productions including DECEMBER BOYS alongside Daniel Radcliffe and Jack Thompson, HUNT ANGELS opposite Ben Mendelsohn and the comedy film BOYTOWN with Mick Molloy and the wildly popular television teen drama series, Dance Academy which was aired in over 180 territories around the world including in the USA on Nickelodeon.
