Tony-nominated Mireille Enos is currently starring in the critically acclaimed AMC drama series, The Killing. Enos will star opposite Brad Pitt in the Marc Forster-directed zombie extravaganza World War Z, which is based on the novel by Max Brooks and goes into production this summer. For the past three seasons, Enos starred in the HBO drama “Big Love.”
The Hollywood Reporter recently raved, “You can’t take your eyes off Enos…There hasn’t been a female American character like her probably ever.” Last spring, Enos returned to the stage, starring opposite Annette Bening, David Arquette, and Julian Sands in Joanna Murray-Smith’s comedy The Female of the Species at the Geffen Playhouse. In 2005, Enos earned a Tony nomination for her role of Honey in the Broadway revival of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, opposite industry veterans Bill Irwin and Kathleen Turner. Enos has appeared in numerous television series including: Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Medium, CSI: Miami, Sex and the City, and Without a Trace.
Born to an American father and French mother, Enos was raised in Houston where she attended schools for the dramatic arts. While studying acting during her third year at Brigham Young University, she was invited to join a two-month project at the Classic Stage Company in New York City. She bought a one-way bus pass and the rest, as they say, is history.
