She seized the opportunity to coach AnnaSophia Robb, Josh Hutcherson and Bailee Madison, all of whom have since built successful careers in Hollywood. Bridge to Terabithia reached the number two spot in the US box office. Produced for $28 million, it grossed $140 million worldwide. The ensemble cast, lead actor and lead actress all won awards for their work at the US Critics’ Choice Awards. The success of Bridge to Terabithia opened the door for Miranda to make acting-coaching core to her career.

    "Leslie could never have come in full bloom without the freedom and life you showed me. You pulled Leslie out of me and I would never have won the award without your help. Thank you so much! I really hope we can do many more films together. I always feel so much more prepared after running the scenes and thoughts with you. You always have such great insights and techniques!"
