She is responsible for one of the most iconic characters in Australian film history, but Pia Miranda's film and television career didn't end with her breakout role in the 2000 film Looking for Alibrandi. In many ways, it was just the beginning.

Miranda has just penned her first book, a revealing memoir that takes readers from tiny villages in Italy to the casting couches of LA to sliding doors moments with Harvey Weinstein to Survivor Australia tribal councils. (Did you know she won the show's sixth season?)

In a new episode of Broadsheet Sydney: Around Town, Miranda joins us to talk all of the above, from how she scored the role of Josie Alibrandi to her deepest insecurities to post-Survivor trolls and the snacks she can't live without.
