 Talk to as about stand up ?How many imperosnations are you doing?Which part was or is the funnest?

I started my stand-up comedy career at the New York Comedy Club, which was my first show. It was Halloween and I went on stage as Lucille Ball and wrote a monologue about her. The audience’s reaction was very enthusiastic. That night, my manager Mark Pritcher discovered me and asked me to come to LA. Since then, I frequently do stand-up shows in many different comedy clubs.I am also a theatrical actress; I have done a lot of classical theater before, including The Odd Couple by Neil Simon, Uncle Vanya by Chekhov, etc. I love to smell the wood of the stage and to have contact with the audience, especially through stand up. Last year alone, I locked in at least 200 shows. I have a strong passion for comedy, and I am a workaholic. My  faces impersonations include :Lucile Ball, Al Pacino, Melania Trupm , Nancy Pelosi,  Joan Crawford, Sofia Vergara, Ozzy Osbourne, Judge Judy, Kim Kardashian, Lady Gaga,J onny Depp,  Eminem, Bruno Mars, Penelope Cruz, Ariana Huffington, Cardi B ,  Marilyn Monroe, Liz Taylor, David Bowie, Fredy Mercury,  Jack Sparrow,  Elton John, Sophia Loren,  katy PerryLindsay Lohan , Ivana Trump,Frank Zappa, Bette Davis, etc.I established a stand-up career at various comedy clubs that I perform as a regular. I love the Comedy Store and Laugh Factory in LA, and the New York Comedy Club, Caroline’s,Stand Up New York etc. I’m a funny person, I like to laugh in my personal life and so in my professional life I enjoy more comedy roles! Paradoxically, though, I have received two writing awards for drama! It is funny because in a recent movie I get killed, and in another I kill somebody else LOL!


Ms. Mirou, the classic question: what charity do you work with and can you provide a link to it so others can see too please.

I am an  active member of “PATH”, means “People who Assist the Homeless “,an organization that helps homeless find shelter,food,health care,e,t,c.I am  member of the “Amnesty international” ,supports the human rights around the world.I  support “Children with Autism”.I spent many weeks to help children with Autism,I have  visited a number of hospitals throughout the years.I donated several times my income from many theatrical plays of  mine  to the Autism Children.  

During this time of lockdown, you made two future films playing 2 iconic cinema stars.Tell us about this!Also,what projects, movies, or other would be your dream role or movie production or project in the future with what actors or directors or what you dream about?

This year through the quarantine ,I was sooo lucky to made 2 big British films one about Elizabeth Taylor,”Affairs in Carpi ”and another film in Hydra that I play the iconic actress Sophia Loren.For me to performed in a crazy covid-19 year,two of the most legendary actress is the gift of my life and my career.All actress dream to play iconic talents one day.For me they was both amazing actresses and beauty icons.I was so happy ,same time I was very responsible to play them with respect and as much real as I can.So, I send tape and the casting director Suzanne Kendal write me back”You are in shock with your talent,you take the role”,,,I was doing a party that day to my self to celebrate ,,myself,,!!For Liz part I did Stand up comedy and the director discovered me there and asked me to do Taylor impersonation,I did it and I really had work up to her before played her in comedy clubs.That time was her biography film and he love affair with Richard Burton.The w ells actor Ed Ward play the character of Burton.The production was Excalibur Productions from London.For the Sophia Loren film ,director is Paul Wiffen ,and British actor Joe Vetch play the character of Leonard Cohen,Julita Deka is the DP,Producers are the Pinewoods Studio in London,Olympics films and the Scottish Palm tree entertainment,Rachael Sutherland.Also soon I will direct my first Future film.As an actress I want to play Edward Albee and Tennessee Williams in American stage soon too.

During this time of lockdown, after this  two future films  you made,what are you reading, watching movie wise?  If you have  movies please provide.

All this time that 5 months I was on set shoot for this two films about Sophia Loren and Liz Taylor ,I was very very busy.I work with the ‘Actors Studio” method ,means I was prepare my self hard before I go on set.The other months that I have to stay home in the lockdown,I wrote 3 new Stand Up comedy shows(to have material for after ),I wrote a book about Astronomy and space 300 pages,and I write a vocabulary with 2.590 ancient Greek dialect for North Greece,where is my heritage.So now I m ready to publish all of them.Same time one night per week,every Tuesday I did and still continue todo a Stand Up Comedy Show through zoom with amazing comedians in Los Angeles,host is the talented comedian Steven n Keibrough,Lot of people watching us ,every week I transform my self in a different character ,and for exile Lucille BALL ,Or Marylin Monroe ,Ozzy Osbourne and I talk about virus,etcThe only film I watch was a comedy with Roberto Begnini “The Monster”.

So,the fun part of the film industry is working on a movie.  However, each movie is like a project.  What part of the movie or project are you great at and how do you do it? And what part of the movie or project do you feel you still are working on to improve and how are you doing that?

I like a lot prepare the character.When I take a new character to play ,,,I m like a nun!I disappear and send my time up to create the character,same time I enjoy that.To improve this means a lot of rehearsals , ,a lot or research,and discovery.I like when i have to play opposite characters than me.Or face s in comedy that I did not even think I can do ,but I m bold.When I told to my manager “Hey tonight i m thinking to show up like …Elton John..or Freddie Mercury”,,he was very exciting,but same time for me that was a bet with myself.When i did it and the audience laugh so hard,I felt very satisfied.Thats why I like the Stand live and you can fell the audience reaction automatically,,in films you see this later in cinema.

It must have been great to work with such talent like with Michael Madsen, Faye Dunaway ,Michael Madsen,and Daryl Hannah on the project “American Connection”?

It’s a great honor to have worked with these legendary actors in the drama film American Connection by Jeff Espanol. I find this film to be the best dramatic role I’ve had in an American production. I’m on screen next to the living legend that is Faye Dunaway, as well as sharing scenes with the amazing Daryl Hannah. I play the role of a nun-spy (also named Despina, haha!), and it’s one of the most interesting things I’ve ever done, the style of which reminds me of Tarantino.As a nun-spy  I was ready to kill ,and same time I was sing the “Ave-Maria”!Without wanting to give too much away, in a crucial scene in the film, Michael Madsen,Ben Maccabee and Robert Miano’s characters attempt to use a weapon on me. However, an on-set malfunction made Madsen, an actor of great experience, improvise and pull a knife on me! When we went to do another take, Jeff Espanol was so impressed with the raw, improvised result that he decided against it.

You are also a sex symbol in Europe ,and now the International movies Data-Competition lists you as the most sexiest and talented actress ,you are between Bellucci andJolie!!How do you feel about it?

As Oscar Wilde said:Beauty is just five minutes long if you don’t have anything else to sustain that curiosity”!I believe talent is more important than beauty.Talent makes people look beautiful .

You received many awards! Can you talk about them and about your  Films awards in  film festivals?What is like receiving an ward fro the white house ?
