Esther Mira was born in India and was first bitten by the acting bug at age four when she played the title character in Rudyard Kipling’s The Elephant’s Child, at her summer camp near Boston, Massachusetts, where she was raised from infancy by her adoptive parents. She has been acting, dancing and singing ever since.
Esther’s fresh personality and fun-loving spirit make her perfect for everything from quirky comedic roles to ingénues. Her acting shows a rare passion and dedication to her craft. She is a skilled comedian, gifted soprano, and vibrant dancer that captivates her audiences with her alluring presence and talent.
Esther is a Jill-of-all-trades who has loved working to develop her craft through extensive training, including apprenticeships at a number of notable theaters. As an apprentice at The Berkshire Theatre Festival, she studied under Stephen Spinella, Joanna Going, and Suzuki instructor Eric Hill. She also completed a residency at the Boston University Theater Institute in Boston, MA. She has studied abroad at The Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford-Upon-Avon, UK under the guidance of Michael Boyd and Vikki Heywood, at The Globe Theatre in London, UK, and at The Russian Academy Of Theatre Arts (GITIS) in Moscow, Russia, where she performed as Nina in The Seagull.
Esther graduated from Scripps College in Claremont, CA with a BA in Fine Arts and Gender Studies. She focused there on opera, dance (modern, jazz, West African Dance, choreography) and theatre (Improv, comedy, musical theatre). She received her MFA in Acting from East 15 Acting School, the theatre department of the University of Essex in London. There she did workshops and master classes in Shakespeare, Michael Chekhov, devised theatre, script writing, acting for film and TV, voice and accents, biomechanics, physical theatre, Grotowski and Laban Technique.
She is thrilled to be back in Los Angeles and is excited for new acting opportunities.
