Alicia Malone is a film reporter, critic, TV host, writer, and all around movie geek. She developed her taste for film at a young age in her native Australia, spending many a heady Friday night pajama-clad at the video store, picking out 7 films for 7 days for $7. Years later, she could be seen hosting movie-centric shows and reviewing films on major network TV channels across Australia.
In early 2011 Alicia said goodbye to her family, packed two suitcases and moved to LA, the film capital of the world. Since then, Alicia has appeared as a guest, a host or a correspondent for: CNN, Access Hollywood, E!, Entertainment Tonight, The Insider, MTV, Hollywood Today Live (Fox), MSNBC, AMC Theaters, Fandango, Screen Junkies, IGN, Reelz, Australia’s Today Show, Studio 10, Movie Juice, Foxtel Movie Show, Event Cinemas, and New Zealand’s Breakfast on TV One. To name just a few. Phew.
She is passionate about classic films, independent movies and supporting women in film. In September 2015, she gave a TEDx talk on the lack of women in movies and why that needs to change.
Alicia has traveled the world to cover the BAFTAs, the Oscars, the Cannes Film Festival, Toronto Film Festival, Sundance Film Festival, SXSW and Comic-Con, and has interviewed nearly every movie star you could name, hugging many, including Oprah. Hey, she’s only human. She also wrote this bio, but knew it would sound way less egotistical if written in third person.
