Miriam Margolyes heartwarming and hilarious show Almost Australian has now dropped on Stan. 

After previously airing on the ABC Australians fell in love with the actress on her journey.

Now we can watch the star on her road trip and fall in love all over again on streaming service Stan.

Miriam Margolyes: Unfiltered and fabulous

In 2020 the ABC debuted Almost Australian featuring Miriam Margolyes travelling across Australia.

Australians fell in love with the actress for her unfiltered and fabulous nature on the program.

As she travelled around the country to better understand the Australian identity Margolyes dropped her honest opinion on the things and people she saw along the way.

The self proclaimed “fat, jewish, lesbian” had a lot to say and very little filter.

It was perhaps that lack of filter and her potty mouth that made her all the more endearing to viewers.

On her journey Miriam Margolyes visited a range of Australians living in unique and often harsh circumstances.

The series opening episode featuring a drought stricken family on the brink of ruin is heart wrenching.

Other parts of her journey where much more upbeat as we followed her across the country.

Her journey was broken down to just three episodes, exploring three key concepts for the film.

The Australian Dream, Mateship and The Lucky Country.

From meeting immigrants to travelling familes and a local Sistergirl community Margolyes doesn’t hold back on asking tough or often intrusive questions.

Moments like her time at the McArthur River Mine left her bewildered, while places like Surfers Paradise left her, more disgusted. 

Miriam takes the viewer with her as unpacks her thoughts and emotions on screen, trying her best to understand the country she calls home.

Almost Australian is now available to stream on Stan in Australia.
