Miriam Heard: Biography
Writer / director / actress
Project Title: DREI SCHWESTERN (Three Sisters)
I was born in North Wales to a German mother and an English father, and was brought up in Abu Dhabi, UAE.
I studied English literature at Oxford before going to the Rada in London and then the Conservatoire National in Paris as a stagiaire ÚtrangŔre for a year. Currently I live and work half the year in Chile and half the year in Paris.
As an actress film work includes Klimt, La Maison Nucingen and Chacun son CinÚma all by Ra˙l Ruiz; television includes Valeria Sarmiento's As Linhas de Torres Vedras and the title role in Maria Graham by the same director; theatre work includes Le Mariage by David Lescot and I See Myself by Howard Barker.
I translate between French, German, English and Spanish. Theatre translations include Schńndung by Botho Strauss, L'Annonce faite Ó Marie by Paul Claudel and Blackbird by David Harrower. Prose translations include a selection of John Aubrey's texts for a Spanish-language edition, as well as selected texts about Pina Bausch (L'Arche ╔diteur 2012).
I began writing for film with Maria Graham, and followed that with developing other projects for television, short films and feature film projects.
In 2011 I took the intensive film-making course at NYU SCPS, filming my first short film on 16mm.
