Who is Miya Cech?

Miya Cech is a teen actress and model, who rose to fame with her roles in “The Darkest Minds”, “Are You Afraid of the Dark?”, and “Always Be My Maybe”. She was born under the Zodiac sign Pisces on 4 March 2007, in Tokyo, Japan. As of 2021, she is 14 years old and holds Japanese and American nationality.

Family, Bio, Wiki

She has been raised by her American adoptive parents ER. Cech and G.Cech in Northern California alongside three siblings Emi Marie, Kai Marie, and Nikko J, who are also adopted. Her older sister, Kai Marie, followed in Miya’s footsteps and launched an acting career as well, so far appearing in “So Close”, Rickard Lovely”, and “Marvelous and the Black Hole”.

https://www.instagram.com/p/CVobyFFvI8T/

While some children like to keep this type of personal information away from the public eye, Miya is far from that mindset. In her opinion, the fact that she was adopted allows her to use her voice and social platforms to support the adoption community, and reach out to other adopted children. In an interview, she disclosed: “I want adoption to be normalised, some kids need help and homes and families and that is super important for me. Everyone deserves to be loved and have a family and I want to be able to share that and represent that and you know inspire other families to adopt and that’s why it’s big for me.”

Rise to Stardom

She launched her career as a model at the age of four through her parents, featuring in various ads and on catwalks.

In an interview, she talked about the experience of having started a career at such a young age, Miya saying: ”My parents sacrificed a lot over the years, including just driving me everywhere. For school, though, we have teachers on set in both the modeling world and the acting world. “

She made her TV debut at the age of eight in 2015, appearing in an episode of the action crime series “Hawaii Five 0”. During the same year, Miya guest-starred in the comedy series “The Thundermans” and crime drama series “Hand of God”.

In 2018 Miya joined the cast as Suzme – “Zu” – in the dystopian superhero film “The Darkest Minds” starring Amandla Stenberg and Harris Dickinson. While many had high expectations considering the popularity of superhero movies in general, it appeared that those expectations weren’t met, as the film opened to an overwhelmingly negative reception and reviews, with criticism aimed at the generic, derivative, and predictable plot. Additionally, it poorly performed at the box office, grossing only $41 million against the $35 million production budget. Despite the movie’s negative reception, Miya’s convincing performance as Zu did not go unnoticed, and she finally started attracting recognition and exposure.

Miya also revealed that the whole crew had the pleasure of talking to the astronaut Chris Cassidy, to prepare for their roles and challenges while filming, she said: ” Chris Cassidy went to the international space station and we got to ask him questions that would help us in the show. We also did movement training; ee had a choreographer and we played this game where we’d push off of each other but we’d have to make it look like we were in zero gravity.”

Despite the positive reviews the series has garnered, it appears that Nickelodeon will not be renewing the show for another season.

She landed another lead role in 2021, in the coming-of-age drama movie “Marvelous and the Black Hole”, opposite Rhea Perlman. Working with Rhea was a one-of-time experience for Maya, and she has nothing but words of praise.

Additionally, working with the director Kate Tsang gave her insight into the works and process of directing, she said: “I’ve only worked with a couple of Asian-American directors, and because I want to be a director someday, getting to see that and putting myself in their shoes was amazing. It was a really fun project to work on all together.”
