Home and Away star Ada Nicodemou announces launch of new book Mia Megastar

‘OK, I have a big announcement!’

Actress Ada Nicodemou, best known for her role in the television series Home and Away, recently added a new skill to her repertoire.

The adored TV personality made an announcement on Wednesday regarding the release of Mia Megastar, her debut children’s book.

“I am thrilled to present my latest book, Mia Megastar! 📚,” she said as the caption for a recent Instagram post.

It is the ideal junior fiction book for all the young kids out there (geared for ladies 8 years old and up) who desire to be megastars because it is all about family, food, friendship, and fun.

Ada discussed the book in a bit more detail in the accompanying video.

She said, “It’s kind of based on my childhood and what motivated me to become an actor.”

And Mia accomplishes this by starting her own theater group with her pals.

It’s friendly, humorous, and centered around the bizarre Greek culture.

“You’re going to adore it!”

Ada’s followers were delighted by her foray into a new area.

“Congratulations, Ada on your very first book!” one fan wrote.

“Amazing — love it and awesome work!” said another.

“Bet it will be a fun story and message — go you!”

“This is awesome!” wrote a third.

A blurb published by Penguin reveals a little bit more about the character of Mia.

“I’m the only kid in my class who lives above a shop. And not just any shop — everyone knows Costa’s is the best place for fresh fruit and pastries and dips and bread,” Mia says.

“Anyway, I wanted to tell you about what happened at school yesterday. Well, not AT school, but on a school trip.

“We saw the play Leaving … and it’s all I can think about.

“The lights, the heavy red velvet curtains, the music, but mostly the sad girl with tears streaming down her face as she waves goodbye to her best friend.

“Our buses pull up at the kerb and the teachers herd us on. And while we’re on our long trip back to Summerdale, I realise something.

“I want to be her. The girl in the play. I want to be up there on the stage with the lights and the curtains and the music.


Ada thought back last year to a turning point in her own acting career—her role in the popular 1999 science fiction movie The Matrix.

One year before to assuming the character of Leah Patterson on Home and Away, Ada was cast in the film.

Her character, Dujour, went to see Neo (Keanu Reeves) at his apartment with her lover, Choi (Marc Gray), in order to pick up illicit software that Neo had written for additional money during his free time.

On her left shoulder, she had a tattoo of a white rabbit.

“Throwback to when I had a cameo in #TheMatrix and played the White Rabbit Girl 🐇 🎬,” Ada wrote on Instagram in November.

Ada from the movie was recognizable to certain fans, but not to the majority.

One follower responded, “That’s so cool!” while another used an emoji of disbelief.

One admirer said, “OMG, I love this movie franchise, and you just told me about this now!”

“What a fun experience I had!”

From modest beginnings to the success story of today. You’ve gone a very long way,” said one more person.

The Home and Away favourite’s acting career had kicked off five years before The Matrix in 1994, when she was cast as Katerina Ioannou in Heartbreak High.

After roles in Police Rescue and Breakers, she landed The Matrix role, which was filmed in Sydney.

It featured other Australian actors, including Hugo Weaving as Agent Smith and Matthew Doran, who played The Mouse.
