She gained popularity playing the docile and devout nun in a popular tele-serial, and ironically, it was a similar role that shot her to fame. Mia George, who breathed life to sister Sophy in Vishudhan, is upbeat these days. Besides earning rave reviews for Vishudhan, she has been cast opposite Mohanlal in B Unnikrishnan’s much-touted Mr Fraud.

The beautiful actor is also gearing up for her Tamil debut through Amarakavyam, starring Satya, brother of actor Arya. So, has finally Mia arrived? “I haven’t thought of it that way. Of course, my career has got a boost post Vishudhan where I played a strong and steady character. I have a few more releases in hand and of course, things are rosy at the moment,” says Mia.

The actor is looking forward to Mr Fraud, the first heist movie ever in Malayalam. Mr Fraud is a thriller flick wherein Mohanlal plays the role of a maverick who has his way. Bollywood actor Dev Gill will make his Malayalam debut through ‘Mr Fraud’ by playing the anti-hero.

“I am looking forward to this project as I get to work along Mohanlal. Though I had earlier acted in Red Wine, we never shared much  screen space,” says Mia who has pinned her hopes on the project. Like many others before her, Mia is also eyeing Kollywood. “Amarakavyam is directed by Jeevasankar. I play Karthika and am paired opposite Satya. I hope the movie does well,” says Mia.

Though she debuted in silver screen through ‘Chettayees’, movie buffs never saw much of her until ‘Visudhan’ happened.

Though Mia played an important role in ‘Red Wine’ and a miss-and-blink role in Memories, she was not exactly tagged a steady presence. “Though I did a couple of movies, I never had a song until ‘Vishudhan’. The song Mezhuthiriyude..’ has made me a household name.

The song was lapped up by many for its soft and heavenly music and now I guess people have started recognising me,” says Mia.

“When Vyshakh told me the about the Vishudhan, I knew that this was not going to be the potboiler which he is quite famous for. But, I wasn’t at all tensed about doing a serious character as I could connect with the  character. I have spent all my growing years with nuns,” says Mia.

She adds that people said they couldn’t imagine a better ‘Sister Sophy’. “Sister Sophy is a gentle woman. I could get into the skin of the character quite easily. There was not even make up. I just had to play up the innocence,” says Mia. Mia’s next release is Salam Kashmir where she is cast alongside Jayaram. “It was an experience working in the movie.

All the crew, including Joshiy sir were much seniors to me and when I joined the crew I was so worked up. But, as days passed I couldn’t be more comfortable,” says Mia who is juggling between work and studies. When she is not shooting, Mia is immersed in her books, but no, she isn’t complaining. “I am not much a career-planner and so far, things are good. I am not that ambitious and I just want to do some good characters,” she adds.
