ABOUT MIA RIO
Mia Rio is a trilingual Brazilian-American actress based out of Atlanta, GA. Mia started her Acting career in street theater and church musical theater as early as 10 years old, combining her passions for singing and interpreting roles into one. The love for sets and screens came years later during Mia's studies of Journalism and Advertising at the Universidade de Brasilia (UnB), a top 10 university in Brazil. Having to juggle corporate and creative lives, Mia also developed a career in Experiential Marketing while casually pursuing Acting, booking her first role in 2008 for a Virginia based law firm commercial, an experience she recalls as dreadful. Mia decided to take the big plunge into Acting 7 years later after witnessing Captain America: Civil War shooting for over a month at the Porsche Headquarters in Atlanta where she worked. The transition was far from easy, especially after learning the hardships of the Acting career pursuit and having been establishing herself more and more in the Music Industry along the years. Mia pursued on-screen Acting in independent productions and also became a stand-in on a few network shows to learn the ropes of the industry. After a job at Google Fiber, Mia realized that it did not matter how great of a corporate journey she had, sets and stages are where her heart is. Mia landed her first role in Television on the Oprah Winfrey show 'Greenleaf', shot at Eagle Rock Studios in Norcross, GA. Mia is signed to East Coast Talent Agency and has acted in over 20 film and TV projects since 2018.
