Asher Keddie has been one of Australia’s most acclaimed and beloved actors for decades. From Love My Way to Offspring, Paper Giants, Nine Perfect Strangers, The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart, she has won awards and hearts in equal measure.
She is now starring in the dramedy Strife, about an imperfect woman who leaves a high profile job as a glossy magazine editor to start a women’s website and try to grow a media company.
Sound familiar? The show was loosely inspired by Mia Freedman’s memoir, Work, Strife, Balance but it’s not about Mia. It’s about every woman who has felt like her life is…..a lot.
So what happened when Mia finally lured Asher into the No Filter studio after seven years of asking?
A very, very candid conversation about friendship, fame and how Asher Keddie feels so different in her 40s than she has at any other time in her life.
Mia's memoir Strife is available here.
