Miranda Plant

Miranda is an actor and a student of Theatre and English at Trinity College, University of Toronto.

In the past few years she has appeared in many theatre productions both at the university and in the surrounding area.

Selected credits: Audience/Dead Nurse in Jerry Springer The Opera, Caitlin O’Hare in Over The River And Through The Woods, and Philia in A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum (Rose Theatre). Also: Miss Whittington in Not Now Darling (Drayton Entertainment); Cecily Cardew in The Importance of Being Earnest; the workshop of Fear of Fighting (Nightwood Theatre); and has performed in The Festival of New Ideas and Creation (Canstage); The New Ideas Festival (Alumnae Theatre); a children’s theatre tour, and various cabarets. Miranda is featured on “I Got Fired!” webseries, and has appeared in several national commercials. She has also recently had the opportunity to sing lead vocals with the jazz band, The Devonshire Cats. Her resume is changing everyday, so this list by no means contains all of her work to date.

She is also a prolific singer and dancer, having spent 10 years studying ballet and hip-hop.

She is also the Associate Artistic Producer, and Coordinator of The Artist Lab at the Paprika Festival, which is located at the Tarragon Theatre. The Artist Lab is a theatre program giving young people the opportunity to see 12 shows around Toronto, followed by working with professional theatre artists to create their own 5 minute , one-man show to be performed at the end of the festival.

Miranda started working on Pure Pwnage 2 years ago during her second year at University. She was approached by director Geoff (who also plays the character of Kyle) who saw her across the dining hall, and went up to talk to her. He had heard that she was an actor and asked if she was interested in auditioning for his TV series because she had “the look” he wanted. She was a little apprehensive though when he asked “Do you want to be on the internet?” – it sounded like he was proposing something very different. But she ran a little background check on him to find out that he was a physics don at the University, then decided to meet up with him and Jarrett (Jeremy), for her audition. They instantly clicked and began working with each other soon after. It was just meant to be!

2 years ago Miranda worked as the Director of a Technology Camp teaching kids how to make simple video games.

She enjoys spending her spare time with her family (her father David was the executive producer for episode 12 of Pure Pwnage), boyfriend Todd and new puppy Buck.
