Who is Mia Goth?
British actress Mia Gypsy Mello da Silva Goth was born in Southwark, London, England, on 25 October 1993, meaning that Scorpio’s her zodiac sign. She’s appeared in two TV series and 16 movies, and is probably known best for starring in the title role as Pearl in the eponymous 2022 horror movie, written and directed by Ti West, and which also starred David Corenswet and Tandi Wright. Set in 1918, the movie follows the life of a young girl living on her parents’ farm, and won nine of its 56 award nominations.
Mia’s also known for being the wife of famous American actor and moviemaker Shia LaBeouf.
Education and early life
Mia was raised by her Canadian father and Brazilian mother, while her maternal grandmother is Maria Gladys Mello da Silva, a famous Brazilian actress, and her maternal grandfather Lee Jaffe, an American artist and photographer. Mia has no siblings.
She spent the first five years of her life in Brazil, as her mother was 20 and unable to raise her all by herself, thus seeking her parents’ help; Mia’s father worked on his career in Canada, and only visited occasionally. She was five when she and her mother moved to London, then moved in with Mia’s father in Canada when she was 10; she switched nine schools in only a year, and found it hard to live with her father, which was why Mia and her mother moved back to London when she was 12.
She attended Sydenham School in London, and upon matriculating in 2012 focused on acting, rather than pursuing a college degree.
