Although she is only in her early 20s, Ellen Muth can already claim several years of experience on stage, in film and on television. A unique combination of youthful looks, mature attitude and extensive acting experience made her the perfect choice for the role of George in DEAD LIKE ME.
Muth became interested in acting as a child and started acting studies at age 10. At 14, she drew widespread attention with her portrayal of the young Selena in the Stephen King-based feature film, "Dolores Claiborne" starring Kathy Bates, Jennifer Jason Leigh (as the adult Selena) and Christopher Plummer.
Following "Dolores Claiborne," Muth appeared on stage in the off-Broadway production "Nine Armenians," before taking time off from acting to finish school with her friends. Her feature film credits include "Rain," written and directed by Katherine Lindberg, and "A Gentleman's Game," directed by J. Mills Goodloe. Her first starring role in a feature film, as Constance in "The Young Girl & the Monsoon," earned Muth the AFI Los Angeles International Film Festival Best Actress Award in 1999.
On television, Muth has appeared in two episodes of "Law & Order," the television movies "Two Against Time," "The Truth about Jane," "Cora, Unashamed," and the pilots "Being Brewster" and "Normal, Ohio." She also appeared in the miniseries "Superfire" and "Only Love."
