Sarah Snook found global fame on the hit television series Succession, with its main filming location set in New York.
And now the Australian actress, 34, will recognise local talent by presenting at the 2021 Australian Academy Cinema Television Arts Awards (the AACTAs), to be held in Sydney on Wednesday December 8.
With no formal host at the awards ceremony, Adelaide-born Sarah will join other stars including Rebel Wilson, Russell Crowe and Baz Luhrmann in presenting a category.© Provided by Daily Mail Aussie success story: Succession star Sarah Snook, 34, is back on home soil and will present at the 2021 AACTA Awards in Sydney on Wednesday.

On hand to entertain the stars will be musical acts Lime Cordiale, Baker Boy and Steve Kilbey.
AACTA president Russell Crowe said in a statement, 'There's no doubt it's been a tough time – for our industry and the world at large.'
'The 2021 AACTAs offer us the opportunity to come together and recognise those who have worked so hard and produced such high-quality entertainment for people at a time when they needed it most.'
The latest developments come just weeks after the nominees were announced - with a few notable surprises.
Chief among them was that the ABC's new drama The Newsreader led the television categories with 10 nominations - more than the higher profile final seasons of established dramas like Wentworth and Mr Inbetween.

Meanwhile, in between filming for the HBO series and attending red carpet premieres across the globe, Sarah recently spent some of her hard-earned cash on a sprawling property.
The actress' new rural estate is not far from Melbourne in regional Victoria and is the perfect hideaway for Sarah and her new husband, comedian Dave Lawson, 43.

She purchased the three-bedroom, three-bathroom mud brick home for $1.7million, with the stunning property nestled in the dense bushland of the Macedon Ranges.
It's the latest acquisition to Sarah's growing property portfolio, with The Dressmaker actress also owning another property in the area.
Sarah stars on Succession as Shiv Roy, the only daughter of media and entertainment tycoon Logan Roy.
The comedy-drama series centres on the wealthy but dysfunctional family as they battle it out for power after Logan steps down as head of the company.
The AACTA Awards will take place on December 8 when it returns to the Sydney Opera House and screen on Network 10.
