Notes

Born & bred in Bologna (Italy) in '68, Mirko grew up in a middle class country family environment. The only Performers in the family was his Aunty, a piano player and Opera singer. Trade was the ideal choice of work for Mirko’s family so he was pushed to graduate as a Chef in a Hospitality school. The interest for performing arts though was in his blood since a very young age, therefore, at the age of 16, he made a debt of $ 3,000 to enroll in a cat walk & modeling school and acquired his first taste of stage and camera work. It lasted 4 years, from Milan to London, then he decided not to pursue it anymore for boredom and for having to compromise ethics in which he believed in deeply. When he first moved into Australia (1992) his English was basically non existing, so he joined Jan agency in Brisbane and had his first experience in the filming industry as an extra. The dream of being an actor/performer became then very strong although it felt almost impossible to pursue. Utilizing his Italian culture and food knowledge he created stage shows in which he was combining comedy and Italian cuisine awareness and started performing all around Australia & New Zealand. In 2003 he graduated at the Actors Conservatory in Brisbane and his acting career began as full time job and lifestyle. Ever since, Mirko has appeared in theatre, television, feature & Short films, published 2 books and written 2 documentary series, one of which will shortly start production in Australia. Bachelors Guide is the latest project created, written & produced with his good friend & colleague Nicholas Cooper. In 2009, Narnia III – The Voyage of the Dawn Treader has marked his first debut in a Hollywood Feature with a small speaking role. This kick started a series of successful auditions for major television series and feature films, one of which (Agent Provocateur) became the Best Foreign film at the LA Action On Film Fest in 2012. Mirko starred in it as Montgomery Lomax (co-star). In 2012 Mirko obtained a visa that allows him to work in the US and consequently found representation in Burbank and Management in Santa Monica. Mirko lives now between Melbourne and Los Angeles.
