Miracle Laurie, best known for her work on Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse, is an actress who was born and raised in Huntington Beach, Calif. Coming from a family of artists and musicians, her family’s love of cinema, theater and television, along with their endless encouragement, has been instrumental in her love and pursuit of this craft. Dollhouse was an incredible experience for her, providing many important lessons and life-long friendships.
With a solid genre fanbase in the sci-fi/fantasy world, she’s been blessed with a league of fans who are forever supportive of her endeavors as an actress, musician and now producer! Since Dollhouse, she has had a lovely budding indy film career, working with such industry favorites as Alan Cumming, Garret Dillahunt, Josh Duhamel and Dan Fogler. Between a few pilots and some great little movies, she has had a blast these last few years, but is eager to make her return to television.
Miracle Laurie has acted in theatre since the age of 7 and has her degree in drama from the University of California, Irvine. She had her first piano lesson at the age of 5 and has been a Polynesian dancer pretty much since she could walk. She has been lucky enough to dance with such Hawaiian greats as Bill Tapia and Rev. Dennis Kamakahi.
Miracle modeled for a few years and even appeared on the cover of Teen magazine. A few years ago, she and her man fell in love with the ukulele and formed Uke Box Heroes, a very groovy ukulele cover band. She was lucky enough to get her “big break” by appearing as “Mellie/November” in Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse for two seasons. She was blessed to work with such greats as Olivia Williams, Harry Lennix, Eliza Dushku, Fran Kranz, Amy Acker, Alexis Denisof, Reed Diamond, Dichen Lachman, Enver Gjokaj and, last but not least, Tahmoh Penikett.
After Dollhouse she’s been fortunate enough to carve out a small independent film career and get supporting roles in movies starring some of her long-time heroes, like Val Kilmer. She’s also had the pleasure of working right alongside some of the most talented and beloved people in the business like Alan Cumming, Garret Dillahunt, Josh Duhamel and Dan Fogler. She was also thrilled to be part of the cast of Any Day Now, winner of the Heineken Audience Award at the Tribeca Film Festival, and recipient of awards from Outfest, GLAAD, the Chicago International Film Festival, the Seattle International Film Festival, the Provincetown International Film Festival and the Woodstock Film Festival. Miracle followed that with a role in Scenic Route, a festival favorite at Cannes and SXSW.
