A Very Ultra Summer With... Mavournee Hazel
Hello angels. In the latest installment of our #VeryUltra summer, we’re talking to the talented, wonderful Mavournee Hazel. Mav is, to us, the definition of ‘Very Ultra’—firstly, just, aesthetically (if you’re one of her 90,000 Instagram followers you’ll already be obsessed with her style). More importantly, she is one of Australia’s most talented young actresses, regularly dubbed ‘The Next Margot Robbie’. That’s, in part, because she had a three-year stint on Neighbours, and has recently broken out on her own starring in the critically acclaimed Aussie drama series Halifax: Retribution. Refreshingly, Mavournee says her sights aren’t necessarily set on cracking it in Hollywood—she has a long-time love of the Australian film and TV, and is passionate about supporting the local industry. She’s also an advocate for diversifying our media landscape, and—inspired by the likes of Phoebe Waller-Bridge—has aspirations to produce and direct projects about complicated female characters. Mavournee is hilarious, a total open book, and extremely candid about her own mental health struggles—we absolutely adored this conversation and can’t wait for you to listen.
