Mia Maestro as Nadia



Alias: Mía Maestro

Argentine actress Mia Maestro has accrued a selection of impressive film credits since she made her screen debut in Carlos Saura's Tango, which received Golden Globe and Academy Award nominations.

She recently completed work alongside Lucas Black on the independent feature Deepwater for director David Marfield. Her film credits to date include Miramax's Frida, directed by Julie Taymor, where she starred with Salma Hayek, Alfred Molina and Geoffrey Rush; Mike Figgis' Timecode, starring Stellan Skarsgaard, Holly Hunter and Saffron Burrows; Hotel, featuring Chiara Mastroianni and Danny Huston; and HBO's For Love or Country: The Arturo Sandoval Story, where she starred opposite Andy Garcia.

Maestro's Latin American projects include Secuestro Express, directed by Venezuelan director Jonathan Jakubowicz, and two films that were in competition at the 57th Cannes Film Festival – La Nina Santa (The Holy Girl), directed by Lucrecia Martel, and The Motorcycle Diaries, based on the journals of Che Guevara, leader of the Cuban Revolution, for director Walter Salles, starring opposite Gael Garcia Bernal.

Initially trained in Argentina, Maestro moved to Berlin at the age of 18 to develop a vocal repertoire -- in German -- of the works of Kurt Weill and Hans Eisler, which added to her already rigorous schedule of vocal, dance and music classes. Her experience in Berlin both inside and outside of school gave her a renewed spirit and confidence that translated into several noteworthy dramatic performances when she returned to Buenos Aires. Her first proper acting run was a professional one, in a Carlo Goldoni commedia dell'arte, and by 1998 she secured the coveted role of Lulu in Wedekind's Pandora's Box at the San Martin Theater. For this she garnered an Ace Award for Best New Artist of the Year.

Maestro currently resides in Los Angeles.
