The 22-year-old will fill the shoes of eleven-year veteran Marc Fennell, delivering weekly movie reviews to a national audience.

The selection process was extremely competitive — there were more than 1,300 applications for the coveted spot.

To come out on top, Amelia produced a review of the ABC’s You Can’t Ask That series, impressed in an on-air interview, and then pulled an all-nighter to finish one more review before being chosen as the station’s next official “movie human”.

Although she has “big shoes to fill”, she hopes to do the job justice and is excited to have the opportunity.
