Miranda Benjamin

Erik Knudsen's feature film Cleft Lip

Miranda graduated from Salford University with a 1st Class BA Honors in Performing Arts and went on to tour across Britain and Europe for a number of years with various theatre shows, these included ‘Alice in Wonderland’, ‘The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe’ and ‘Macbeth’ at the National Theatre of Luxembourg, to name a few. In recent years Miranda has focused more on developing her screen acting experience within various TV drama’s, commercials,  short films and webseries. She is relishing nurturing and developing the different techniques and challanges required as a Actress for film.

Although Acting has always been her main passion, her introduction to professional performance was as an  Illusionists Assistant which encouraged a interest for indulging in a variety of performance skills such as Singing, Dancing, Puppetry, Flairing and most dangerously dancing with fire! In 2014 Miranda sent out her first solo show incorporating song, comedy, puppetry and poetry to Care homes around the North West; a bid to entertain and spread the festive joy to an older generation at Christmas. This venture has continued to thrive and develop since and is one which she finds particularly enjoyable and rewarding; at any time of year!
