Milly Alcock Wikipedia
It’s fortunate that Milly Alcock isn’t one to shy away from profanity, because the opening scene of Upright, the Australian drama she starred in last December alongside actor and comedian Tim Minchin, required her to unleash the swearing.
Her role as misfit Meg in the highly successful local production was not Alcock’s debut, but the first role that’s earned her attention – and deservedly so. She previously starred in the 2018 TV drama Pine Gap and the 2019 miniseries The Reckoning, and also had a part in Seven’s A Place To Call Home. But in Upright, Alcock spent much of her time on screen with only Minchin, 44, who also co-produced and co-wrote the project, as well as all the music. Known globally as a talented composer and lyricist (Minchin wrote Matilda the Musical), he played fellow outsider Lucky Flynn, who is propelled into Meg’s life by chance and then forced to navigate the Australian outback with her and an upright piano in tow.
