Brush tells the story of a relationship, told through the intimate perspective of the bathroom mirror, in a two-hander starring Olivia Stambouliah (Ambulance) and SAG nominee Kristen Gutoskie (The Handmaid’s Tale), written and directed by Summer Sveinson and produced by Jill Jordan.

Stambouliah joins the list of promising Australian actors in Hollywood, showcasing recent success with multiple winners of the 2024 Golden Globe awards including Elizabeth Debicki (The Crown), Sarah Snook (Succession) and Margot Robbie (Barbie).

Having made her first U.S. television appearance in AMC’s Emmy® winning series, The Walking Dead, and feature film debut in Michael Bay’s action-thriller, Ambulance, starring Oscar® nominee Jake Gyllenhaal, Stambouliah continues to be cast for her strength as a character actor in diverse genres, from a big Bay blockbuster to an indie lead role.

In 2023, Brush made official selection into major U.S. film festivals including Outfest and Dances With Films in Los Angeles and SOHO International Film Festival in New York. In 2024, Mardi Gras Film Festival brings the international premiere to Sydney in the Women Loving Women screening at Event Cinemas George Street, February 23 at 8.30pm and will also stream from 1-14 March.

Centrepiece feature films in this year’s festival include All of Us Strangers, starring Andrew Scott (Spectre), Claire Foy (The Crown) and Jamie Bell (Billy Elliott) and Down Low, starring Zachary Quinto (Star Trek), Judith Light (Transparent) and Lukas Gage (The White Lotus). Stambouliah’s recurring roles on Australian television include Packed to the Rafters, Ben Elton’s Live from Planet Earth and Soul Mates as well as recently starring in the Paramount+ feature film, The Appleton Ladies’ Potato Race. Her latest project is a television series pilot, Housewarming, which is currently in production.

Stambouliah is represented by Innovative Artists and AFA Prime Talent Media.
