Mia Kirshner was born on January 25, 1975 in Toronto, Canada. Her father, Sheldon, is a journalist for The Canadian Jewish News and her mother, Etti, who is originally from Bulgaria, is a teacher. She has one younger sister. Kirshner attended Montreal's McGill University, where she majored in 19th Century Russian Literature and minored in film.

Kirshner first appeared on the big screen as an extra in The Freshman in 1990, which starred Matthew Broderick and Marlon Brando. That same year, she won a role on television, for a full season of Dracula: The Series.

In 1993, she played a dominatrix in the film Love and Human Remains, for which she won a Genie nomination for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role. The following year she snagged the lead role in Exotica, for which she won a Cannes Critics Choice Award. Her appearance in Exotica attracted attention from many American casting agents. After signing with an agent in the states, she quickly won supporting roles in Murder in the First and The Grass Harp, both in 1995. She then landed a lead role in The Crow: City of Angels in 1996.

In 1997, Kirshner played Laurie Callahan, a nervous reporter in Mad City, opposite Dustin Hoffman and John Travolta. Over the next few years she appeared in lesser known films including, Saturn (1999), a drama that cast her as a hedonistic girlfriend, Out of the Cold (1999), Cowboys and Angels (2000) and Century Hotel (2001). She then appeared in the hit spoof comedy, Not Another Teen Movie (2001).

Kirshner next appeared in three episodes of the television series 24, as a bomb-toting hijacker. She reprised the part in 2003 (one episode) and 2005 (three episodes). In 2004, Kirshner was cast in the Showtime series, The L Word, in a leading role. The show, which follows the lives of a group of lesbian friends in southern California, was an instant success. Kirshner has stayed with the show since the its beginning and will appear in the fifth season in early 2008.

In late 2006 she played actress Elizabeth Short, in The Black Dahlia with Josh Hartnett, Scarlett Johansson, Hilary Swank and Aaron Eckhart.
