Miriam ShorMiriam Shor was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, but moved to Venice, Italy when she was only six months old. It was there that her love of theatre started, when she saw her first opera at the ripe age of two. She began doing plays in high school, and went on to get a BFA in theatre/drama as well as a BA in English from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. From there Shor moved to New York to pursue a career in the theatre.
Shor has since appeared in more than half a dozen films, including "Hedwig and the Angry Inch," "Bedazzled" and "Cake Eaters" (currently in post production). She was a series regular on "Inside Schwartz" and "Then Came You," and has guest starred in such TV shows as "The West Wing" and "My Name Is Earl." Most recently she was seen as a series regular on ABC's "Big Day," FX's "Damages" and HBO's "Mildred Pierce."
Shor has returned to her theatre roots often, working with such renowned artists as Stephen Sondheim, Terrence McNally and Lanford Wilson, as well as many young, up and coming writers.
Fluent also in Italian, Shor grew up dividing her time between Detroit, Michigan and Venice and Torino, Italy. She has an adorable mutt named Maude, loves to travel, but having established her status as a true New Yorker, hates driving.
