Mia Kirshner is a Canadian actress social activist and philanthropist, known widely for her role on The L World which earned her several awards. She is now a very talented actress and a writer and continues to act and write.
Kirshner is currently acting in the new television series Defiance, a futuristic science fiction show, playing a character named Kenya Rosewater who is a significant part of the story. The show is very unique and features a number of alien species that have came to Earth, which is a bit of a step away from what Kirshner is usually seen in.
Kirshner is also still an active part of the I Live Here projects, and is the co-founder of the entire organization, which focuses on telling the stories of people in bad situations and making sure that their voices are heard. The book she published featured women and children from Burma, Juarez, Chechnya, and Malawi. The project is a big example of Kirshner's social activism and how she tries to make a difference in society through letting peoples' voices be heard.
The celebrity and activist will continue to lead the I Live Here projects along with her sister and will also continue her role in Defiance as one of the main characters.
