Fast Facts You Need To Know
On 26 January 2019, Szubanski was appointed an officer (AO) in the general division of the Order of Australia for distinguished service to the performing arts as an actor, comedian and writer, and as a campaigner for same-sex marriage.
On 8 April 2019, she appeared as “Guest Announcer” on Chris & Julia’s Sunday Night Takeaway’s season finale where she participated in a number of roles.
From 3 September 2018, Szubanski recurred as Jemima Davies-Smythe on Neighbours. Her character officiated the first same-sex wedding on Australian television.
In 2017, she became one of the most prominent faces of the same-sex marriage campaign in Australia and the co-chair of Australian Marriage Equality rated her crucial in the success of the “Yes” campaign.
In 2015, Szubanski released her award-winning memoir Reckoning. In 2016 the book won several awards and beat some of Australias top literary authors to win the TBA. Reckoning also won the $40,000 Douglas Stewart Prize for Nonfiction and “Book of the Year” and “Biography of the Year” at the Australian Book Industry Awards.
Academy Award winner and friend Geoffrey Rush launched her book and wrote in The Guardian: “I was absorbed in preparing for King Lear when I read the book. The classical stature of that particular father-daughter relationship didn’t go unnoticed. Magda grew up in the shadow of a difficult reckoning — the summation, the questioning, the Elizabethan sense of settling the bill with one’s parents. As she phrases it: her father needed to forget— she needed to remember. The only way forward was back. Her book riffs a major life in a reflective minor key. I’ve got lost in Joyce’s Dublin, Woolf’s Bloomsbury, the Bronte Sisters’ Yorkshire moors. Now I’m enthralled with Magda Szubanski’s Croydon, Australia’s own collective sub-conscious suburb, the architecture of which she deftly anoints as Bauhaus’s “bastard child”…Reckoning is really a non-fiction novel – and its invitation into Magda’s story is infectious.”
She is single and during the 2013 Australian federal election she tweeted lightheartedly about the lack of policy catering for single people.
In 2012, she again teamed with Rush to appear in the Stephen Sondheim musical A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.
On 14 February 2012, Szubanski came out, in a statement supporting same-sex marriage timed to coincide with Valentine’s Day. Later that day, she stated that she “absolutely identifies as gay” in an interview on Australian TV current affairs program The Project.
In 2010, she appeared in the first Indigenous musical film Bran Nue Dae as Roadhouse Betty alongside Geoffrey Rush, Ernie Dingo, Missy Higgins and Deborah Mailman. The film was directed by Rachel Perkins, daughter of the Aboriginal activist Charlie Perkins.
In 2009, she appeared on Who Do You Think You Are? where she explored her father’s Polish Resistance activities as well as the story of her shell-shocked Irish grandfather and her sculptor ancestor Luigi Isepponi who assisted in making the Death mask for William Burke, half of the duo Burke and Hare, notorious grave robbers and serial killers.
In 2008, she again participated in some gender-blind casting, taking on the role of pint-sized gangster Big Jule in a major stage production of Guys and Dolls.
In 2007, she had a minor role as Mrs Lonsdale, the housemaid in The Golden Compass to Lyra Belacqua.
In 2007, Szubanski ventured into musical comedy, taking on the role of William Barfee in the Melbourne Theatre Company production of the hit Broadway musical The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.

She was later again dropped from Jenny Craig. She was also featured in commercials for Telstra in 2014.

She starred in Full Frontal, Kath & Kim where she played Sharon Strzelecki, and in the films Babe (1995) and Babe: Pig in the City (1998) as Esme Hoggett.
In 1995, she and friends Gina Riley and Jane Turner wrote, performed and produced the first all-female Australian sketch comedy television program; Big Girl’s Blouse.
