How Well Do Wonderland Siblings Tim and Anna Know Each Other in Real Life?
Tim Ross and Anna Bamford play siblings Steve and Miranda Beaumont on Network Ten's drama Wonderland, and while most of the drama revolves around the romantic relationships, it's actually Steve and Miranda's relationship that set the tone for pretty much the whole show. Steve banned his friend, Tom (Michael Dorman), from getting involved with his little sister — what usually happens when you don't let someone do something, or get what they want? Lots of yearning and sexual tension. Lucky for Tom and Miranda, they have other distractions this season in the form of Sasha (for Tom) and Max (for Miranda).
For Miranda, season three is about growing up. Anna told us, "Season three for Miranda is a lot about that transition that we all go through from girl to woman, because she's faced with lots of new experiences — like a relationship that's purely based around sex. So that's a new thing for her, because she's only had one sexual partner before. That's the biggest learning curve for her, and really makes her grow." She added, "She becomes much stronger within herself, and finally starts to stand up for herself, because for a lot of season one and two she was like a bit of a pushover when it comes to guys. This season she takes the reins. It was very fun to play."
As for her big brother Steve, Tim explained to us, "Season three is not the most pleasant season for Steve. He comes back from Singapore because it's not working out too well, the whole long distance thing with him and Dani. There's the whole Sasha scenario — Tom and Sasha — and Steve is not a fan of Sasha, so he does his best to kind of deter Tom from her, but doesn't have too much luck in doing so. I guess they sort of fall apart; she causes a lot of friction between Tom and Steve. So yeah, he sort of goes downhill a bit in season three."
With Wonderland back on our screens, we decided it was time to put Tim and Anna to the test — the real test. We totally get that playing brother and sister on a TV show doesn't mean you know each other as well as real siblings do, but how much do Tim and Anna really know about each other? We asked them the same set of questions separately — keep reading to see whether their answers matched up!
Wonderland airs Wednesdays at 8:30 p.m. on Network Ten.
