Appearing in both worlds as both the young wife who died of Yellow Fever and as her ghost reappearing to help her husband escape his fate, her performance created quite a buzz for this young actress who made quite an impression on the die hard “Lost” Fans.
That role led to terrific parts in series such as FX’s “Terriers,” and A&E’s/Happy Madison pilot “Big Mike.” She also landed a couple of key lead roles in films to be released late 2013 and early 2014. First up is the western genre film “Hot Bath an’ a Stiff Drink,” a classic western tale of revenge, where she plays a bad-ass sharp shooting bank robber opposite Rex Lynn (“CSI Miami,”) William Shockley (“Dr Quinn Medicine Woman,) and Tim Murphy (“Sons of Anarchy.)

Mirelly was born in Guadalajara, Jalisco MEXICO to a mother finishing her last year of medical school, trying to make a better life for her and her family. Shortly after, her mother moved them to Tijuana where she started a free clinic, which thrived for many years before moving to Texas when Mirelly was 11 years old. Since the age of three, Mirelly loved performing. She was always involved in children’s theatre and would jump up on any stage that would have her.
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 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.
