Arnold Schwarzenegger is better known for its muscles and boxes at the box office than for its escapades on the shootings. However, an distressing testimony has just fallen which brought down the ex-term of its pedestal. Like what, the muffles are everywhere.

Miriam Margolyes came out as a lesbian in the 1960s, but is has only just experienced the joy of attending her first Pride.

We know and love the 81-year-old Harry Potter star for her witty comments and scandalous stories, but now she’s opening up about her own past and what it was like to come out.

The actress shared her story in ABC’s Australia Unmasked, with the British-Australian star taking a dive into the history of LGBTQ+ rights Down Under.

In a precious moment, Miriam went to Pride for the first time in Hobart, Tasmania, where she was filmed sitting in a wheelchair and holding a bunch of rainbow flags in her lap.

Actors who refused to return for sequels

  Actors who refused to return for sequels Whenever a film is a box-office hit, the natural next step is to make a sequel. And the majority of the time that sequel has roughly the same cast, at least when it comes to the leading roles. Sometimes, however, the cast of a sequel can look rather different from the cast of the original. Whether they like it or not, directors have to deal with the fact that actors aren't always keen for a sequel, even if the first film did well. Check out this gallery to see which actors refused to return for sequels.

Discussing her mother’s reaction to her coming, Miriam – who has been with her partner Heather Sutherland since 1968 – recalled her being ‘devastated’.

‘I told my mother, and she was utterly devastated,’ she said.

‘My Parents were Jewish. My father was a doctor, so you’d think he would be a bit clued up.

‘But no, not when it was his daughter. It wasn’t possible’.

Miriam’s mother, Ruth, was a real estate entrepreneur – she died in 1974 while her dad, Joseph, died in 1995.

Elsewhere in the episode, the queen of anecdotes spoke with Tasmanian LGBTQ+ activist Rodney Croome, who explained that the island state only decriminalised homosexuality in 1997, making it the last place in Australia to do so.

The 58-year-old campaigner shared what it was like to witness ‘large anti-gay rallies’ in Ulverstone at a time when the community were fighting for their rights.

‘Hundreds of people came from all over in the civic centre to protest against LGBTQ+ people in the late 80s.

‘The speakers were inciting the crowds to even higher levels of hatred. The crowds were shouting, “Kill them! Kill them!”.’

However, Rodney said the area has come on leaps and bounds in the years since, thanks to the protections it now offers for queer and trans people.

After the episode aired, he tweeted that it was a ‘privilege’ to film with Miriam and celebrate the State’s achievements.

‘It was a privilege to have Miriam Margoyles highlight how Tasmania has gone from worst to best on LGBTIQA+ human rights’, he wrote.

Others listened to him when reading the "Harry Potter" audio books or even the Bible. And others know him from films like the 1990s comedy "The Moving Man". The range of actor Rufus Beck is enormous: theater, film, television, audiobook and synchronized speaking, for example as a hangover Maribor in the "Bibi Blocksberg" animation films.
