George Miller gives chance to 10-year-old actress Dylan Adonis


Ten-year-old Dylan Adonis was ready to give up on acting when popular Greek Australian film director, George Miller called to offer her a role in ‘Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga’.

According to The Daily Telegraph, Adonis was dejected after auditioning for several film, television, and commercial roles but failing to land a job.

“I wasn’t sure about auditioning for anything again because it was kind of annoying doing your best and them saying I am too tall or that I am too old,” Adonis said.

“I didn’t really want to audition for Mad Max because I thought the same thing would happen but I ended up auditioning anyway because my family really wanted me to.

It was amazing,” she said of filming her scenes in Sydney. “I love acting now. It is really nice to have different experiences on set, it is fun being in movies and watching yourself. Dressing up is fun too.”

Adonis even features in the opening part of the new trailer for the film alongside Anya Taylor-Joy who plays title role, and Chris Hemsworth who plays Dementus.

Currently in Year 5 of primary school in Sydney’s southeast, audiences across the world will see Adonis play Young Valkyrie in the upcoming saga, the character that Megan Gale played in Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road.
