Sonoya Mizuno made her big-screen debut playing Kyoko, a beautiful robot in Alex Garland’s, Ex Machina. The impromptu disco routine that she performs with Oscar Isaacs in the film has been critically acclaimed as “one of the greatest scenes of the year.”
After wrapping her turn in High Strung as Jazzy, a rebellious student too talented for her own good, Mizuno went on to land a co-starring role in Damien Chazzele’s highly anticipated musical, LaLa Land, with Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling. Mizuno is also featured in the lead role of the upcoming drama, Alleycats.
A few years back, Mizuno could be seen dancing with Scotland’s national ballet company, Scottish Ballet, modeling in the pages of i-D and Dazed & Confused and wearing Chanel, Alexander McQueen and Saint Laurent in photographer Can Evgin’s fashion short for Louis Vuitton-backed culture video channel “Nowness” (in which she was seen in a duet with an albino python).
