Meet the cast video: Mehry Iris Eslaminia

by John Moore | Feb 12, 2015

In this ongoing series, we briefly introduce you to the actors performing in our plays in a fun way. Episode 82: Meet Mehry Iris Eslaminia, who graduated from Regis Jesuit High School and is now making her DCPA Theatre Company debut playing Kate - and a mandolin-playing street musician - in the world premiere of Appoggiatura. Mehry, who performed locally in Cabaret for Ignite Theatre and Motherhood Out Loud for The Avenue, talks about her lineage as the daughter of an Iranian father and El Salvadoran mother; being part of the first girls' class at Regis High; and her affinity for both music and Emma Stone. Appoggiatura plays through Feb. 22 in the Ricketson Theatre. Call 303-893-4100, or go to Video by John Moore. Run time: 2 minutes, 40 seconds.
