Very few actors in Hollywood has had an unusual career arc as Mireille Enos. Even though acting was always her career goal, Enos took it to her thirties to emerge with her breakout roles. She was attracted to acting at an early age, watching her 11 years older brother performing theater in high school and college. She played supportive characters in one-off episodes of the shows, ‘CSI,’ ‘Law & Order,’ ‘Without a Trace,’ and many more. After more than a decade of playing characters in television, film, and on the stage, her rise to prominence began after she entered her thirties.
Her first big break came when she played the twin sisters, JoDean and Kathy Marquart in ‘Big Love,’ HBO’s comedy-drama show. The double roles in ‘Big Love’ landed her a role in the AMC crime-drama ‘The Killing,’ which premiered in 2011. ‘The Killing’ became a milestone in Enos’ career and her role as a single mom and homicide detective became an instant hit. The series garnered immense popularity for its plot, which revolved around the killer of a teenager named Rosie Larsen.
The rapturous success of ‘The Killing’ led to more prominent and visible roles for Enos in Hollywood. She appeared in movies like ‘Gangster Squad,’ ‘World War Z’ and ‘Sabotage,’ alongside popular stars Brad Pitt, Josh Brolin and Reese Witherspoon. Her growth from an unknown supporting actor to one the Hollywood’s most reliable character actors was accompanied with a Tony, Emmy, and Golden Globe nominations.

2. Hanna (2019 – Present)
‘Hanna‘ is Amazon’s adaptation of Joe Wright’s cult spy thriller of the same name. The brutal spy thriller was made into a cult classic by Joe Wright in 2011. The plot revolves around a young girl trained by her father as an assassin. Esme Creed-Miles, known for ‘Dark River,’ plays the daughter while ‘The Killing’s’ Joel Kinnaman plays Hanna’s father, Erik. Mireille Enos plays Marissa, the grim secret agent who chases the father and daughter duo. Enos’s character was played by Cate Blanchett in the Joe Wright original. ‘Hanna’ reunites ‘The Killing’ duo, Joel Kinnaman and Mireille Enos for the first time after the path-breaking AMC show.
Amazon’s ‘Hanna’ is directed by Sarah Adina Smith and written by David Farr, and is reportedly grittier and more realistic than the 2011 movie. This highly exciting confrontation between Kinnaman and Enos, who are on the opposite sides this time, makes ‘Hanna‘ very interesting and unique.

Amazon airs the show this March.
