She went to Forest Hill Collegiate Institute, but later transferred to the Jarvis Collegiate Institute. Upon matriculation, she enrolled at McGill University in Montreal, where she studied Russian Literature and 20th-century Film Industry.

At the beginning of her career Mia had several guest-starring roles in such TV series as “War Of The Worlds” (1989), “Danger Bay” (1990), and “My Secret Identity” (1991). In 1990, she was chosen to portray Sophie Metternich in the TV series “Dracula: The Series”, which lasted only a season, then three years later she made her debut film appearance in the role of Benita in “Love & Human Remains” (1993), directed by Denys Arcand, which was followed by another role of Page in the film “Cadillac Girls” in the same year. In 1994, she was cast as Christina in Atom Edoyan’s film “Exotica”, and by the end of the decade, she also starred in the role of Sarah in the film “The Crow: City Of Angels” (1996), playing Kitty Scherbatsky in the 1997 film “Anna Karenina”, and portraying Candice in a film entitled “Cowboys And Angels” (2000).

In 2006, she landed a role in the film “The Black Dahlia”, directed by Brian de Palma, and when the filming of “The L World” was over, she began to appear in the guest-starring role of Isobel Flemming in the hit TV series “The Vampire Diaries” (2010-2011).

Quotes

#Quote
1I think, as an actor, the challenge is to choose wisely. And, you know, say "no" more than you say "yes."
2What I know is true is that there is no shame in being gay. Love does not understand gender.
3I don't care if people think I'm gay. Gender is of no consequence to me. It's a person's brain that counts.
4[on sex scenes with another woman] It's nothing to be ashamed of. I genuinely enjoy doing them, and I think that women are lovely and generous. There's an intangible feeling and a comfort level that is beautiful.
