Misha Gonz-Cirkl

A tender, funny coming-of-age story and tribute to a beloved mother.

A graduate of Performing Arts High School in NYC, Misha also earned a BA from Cornell University and an MBA abroad in Heidelberg, Germany. Although English is her native language, she is fluent in both Spanish and German. After studying/working overseas, she returned to NYC to resume her professional career in acting. Misha has credits in numerous stage, television, film, and voiceover productions in both New York and Los Angeles.

As an improv student at The Groundlings Theater and School in Los Angeles, she is drawn to character roles and writing to tell their stories. At the 2017 San Pedro Film Festival, Misha’s short film, Rapture, won 1st place in the short film category, earning her the titles ‘writer’, ‘director’, and ‘filmmaker’. In 2016 she wrote, performed and co-produced Hummingbird, a 30-minute solo show for a showcase, and in 2022 premiered the full-length show at the Whitefire Theater’s Annual Solofest to rave reviews.

Misha can currently be seen recurring on S1 and S2 of the hit Apple TV+ dramatic series Swagger.
