Mia Maestro is a Hispanic actress and singer-songwriter. She is most famous for her roles in films such as "Frida" and "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn," as well as the FX series "The Strain."
Mia Maestro was born on June 19, 1978 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The daughter of an economist mother and businessman father, she was able to set her sights very high when it came to what to do with her life. That said, she never once settled on just having one career path, instead opting to first move to Berlin at the age of 18 in order to train as a classical vocalist and develop a vocal repertoire of the works of Kurt Weill and Hanns Eisler. From here, Mia also set aside time to practice dancing, as well as study the Brechtian acting technique.
Two years after her move to Berlin, Mia made her way back to Argentina in 1998, where she starred in her first feature film "Tango." With the film going on to be nominated for both Golden Globes and Academy Awards for "Best Foreign Film," her acting career shot up like a rocket, granting her opportunities to star in not only major film and television projects, but also plays such as Frank Wedekind’s Pandora’s Box, which was performed at the San Martin Theater in Buenos Aires and won Mia an ACE Award for "Best New Artist of the Year."
Mia has gone on to star in a number of highly acclaimed roles from that of Cristina Kahlo in 2002's "Frida" to Chichina Ferreyra in 2004's "The Motorcycle Diaries." Along with an ever-prosperous acting career, Mia has also continued to sing, releasing the EP "Blue Eyed Sailor" in November 2012. The title track from the album was even included on the "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" soundtrack, a film in which Mia also starred.
