Shortly after, her mother moved them to Tijuana where she started a free clinic, which thrived for many years before moving them to Texas when Mirelly was 11. Since the age of three, Mirelly has loved performing. She was always involved in theatre and would jump up on any stage that would have her. She graduated with honors and went on to study at SMU in Dallas, TX where the acting bug kept biting at her and she decided to pursue it full time, starting out by enrolling herself into a 2 year intensive conservatory for actors.
She soon found herself appearing in films like “Serving Sara,” with Elizabeth Hurley, Matthew Perry, and Amy Adams, “Hollywood Homicide” with Josh Hartnett and “Down with Love “ with Ewan McGregor. And she kept going, landing lead roles in “Kiss Me Again,” with Jeremy London and Elisa Donovan, and cult classic “The Prodigy.”
But it was her lead performance in the powerful and controversial film “Beyond Honor” that garnered her rave notices. The New Yorker commented that her character was “the emotional center of the film,” “fiercely incarnated by (Taylor) a brave and inspired actress.” Variety concurred in saying that “Taylor creates a heart wrenching portrait of Greek proportions.”
Her notable theater work includes regional productions of “Les Miserables” as Eponine, “The Rainmaker” as Lizzy, “The Odyssey” as several characters, “Pillow Talk” as Meche, “The Spell” as Katherine, “8 Reindeer Monologues” as Blitzen, and “Senora Tortuga” as Leticia.
