Though she was born in St. Louis, her father worked for the United Nations and was stationed in the Solomon Islands and Fiji, which is where Mircea spent a portion of her childhood. She spent time in Michigan and Virginia and attended Virginia Commonwealth University.
She only spent two years in college, before she moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career. Her credits include roles on “Anger Management,” “How I Met Your Mother,” “The Mentalist” and “White Collar,” among other projects.
As for her horror movie experience, Mircea Monroe said, “I’ve done maybe seven horror movies, so that world has been great to me. The fans are crazy-devoted. They’re really wonderful and it’s paid my rent for a long time.” She added that she’s died on-screen a lot: “Gosh. I’ve had my throat slit. I’ve had my boobs cut off, my eyes cut out, I’ve fallen off a cliff. My favorite is getting my arm ripped off by a pterodactyl…it was my first movie ever – I was like eighteen.”
The qualities she looks for in a script are whether it “scares me, moves me or makes me laugh.” As for auditions, she said, “Auditions are their own animal. It’s a love/hate relationship. They can be so rewarding and so crushing. Exhilarating and depressing. Good or bad, they make me feel alive.”
As for her success, Mircea Monroe said, “I was lucky enough to have people who believed in me and fought for me. I hope to do a lot of things in my life, but acting has always made my heart smile.”
Aside from acting she is a certified scuba diver, as well as a certified yoga instructor. She also makes jewelry. “It’s like a locket, but instead it’s got glass over it, so it’s like a picture frame, so you can get it personalized…we’re just starting our website. The company is called Adriana Monroe.”
Mircea Monroe resides in Los Angeles.
