Mira: (on working with her husband) A couple of months ago we finished a play, we did a play together. He directed and I acted and we kind of connected it with the war in the former Yugoslavia. It was a very, very interesting experience, working together. But before that, in Yugoslavia we did a movie together. And we are planning, we are trying to do his movie. But you know how frustrating that whole process is.
Mira: (answering if she always wanted to be an actress) Oh, I don't know, I wanted to be many things. I wanted to study languages, actually and that's what I did. I did that parallel to the Academy of Theatre and Film where I went to high school. I had a lot of various interests, but languages are my other interest.
Mira: Ambassador Delenn is an extraordinary character. She combines so many different traits. She's tough but vulnerable, She's strong but feminine, She's a pacifist but can be militaristic She has depth and spirituality, but can be funny and light at times, So yes I think she's a great role model not only for women but for everyone.
