Milena was born and raised in Brisbane though, she often travels to Serbia to visit family. Milena’s passion for the performing arts permeated throughout her childhood as she trained extensively in ballet and other accompanying styles. During the Covid lockdown, Milena tried her hand at playwriting, which cultivated in her winning Queensland Theatre’s Young Playwrights Award a few months later.

From there she went onto study Queensland University of Technology’s acclaimed acting degree. In her first year, Milena was the lead in the ballet-centric award-winning short film “Prima” and was also cast as Tracy Mudge in Australian Theatre for Young People’s (ATYP) mainstage show “M.ROCK”. which later saw her rehearse and perform full time in Sydney gaining professional experience while completing her studies. During this time, her writing was published through Playlab for “The monologue Collective”, which was subsequently nominated for a Sydney theatre award, alongside M.ROCK.

In her final year of acting school, Milena played Nina in a contemporary adaption of “The Seagull”, and portrayed a young Joan of Arc in the world premiere of “Joan Must Die” directed by Wesley Enoch. In her mid-year break, she also had leading role in a play presented at an arts conference in Florence Italy.  Milena has also been involved in recent play developments at Queensland Theatre and is excited to embrace opportunities offered by this industry as a recent graduate.
