Mia Skrbinac graduated in Drama in 2016, in the year taught by professors Matjaž Zupančič and Matjaž Tribušon. She started her professional theatre career as a self-employed cultural worker with projects at the Ljubljana Puppet Theatre, Ljubljana City Theatre and SNT Drama Ljubljana. In the 2017/18 season, she was a member of SNT Drama Ljubljana, and in the 2019/20 season she was a member of the Ljubljana City Theatre. In addition to projects in institutional theatres, she also works continuously on the independent scene. Her acting is characterised by a subtle power of presence and minimalist contemporary acting expression, which is why she often acts in films and TV series. She temporarily retired from the theatre scene at the beginning of 2021 and is returning to SNT Drama Ljubljana in the 2021/22 season after a short break.
