Tilda Cobham-Hervey – “I Am Woman”

I Am Woman Australian actress Tilda Cobham-Hervey has an uncanny resemblance to the singer Helen Reddy. So much so, that when the movie was screened for the singer and her family, she received the ultimate compliment. “The way she moves, the way she inhabited the role, her performance really makes you believe it’s Helen,” director Unjoo Moon says of the 26-year-old actress who co-starred in the 2019 drama Hotel Mumbai. “Even Helen’s ex-husband, Jeff Wald, said at times he thought he was watching Helen, and that’s the biggest compliment she could get!” Cobham-Hervey plays the Aussie singer from when she arrives in New York in 1966 – with her three-year-old daughter, a suitcase, and $230 in her pocket – through her marriage to Wald (Evan Peters), her Grammy win for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance and the creation of her feminist anthem hit, “I Am Woman.”
