Houston’s Monique Enos is one proud mom. As audiences watch the blockbuster movie “World War Z,” they will see Enos’ daughter, Mireille Enos, the auburn-haired wife of Brad Pitt, as she frantically protects her children from a zombie pandemic.

“It was scary, but you’ve got to see it,” Enos said about her daughter’s movie.

What audiences don’t see is the journey that it took for Mireille (pronounced MeeRay) Enos to reach stardom and the mother who stood behind her.

Though French-born Monique Enos always wanted to be an actress herself, she followed a different path when she married her American husband, Jon, and had five children.

While Enos worked as a French and Spanish teacher, she encouraged her children in their talents as they attended Houston’s High School for the Performing and Visual Arts. In addition to Mireille, two of her children became actors, one a dancer, and one a musician and artist.

Mireille Enos caught the acting bug early. “She always knew that she wanted to be an actress,” her mother said.

At Mireille Enos’ childhood home in Sugar Land, her mother reminisced with 30-year-old scrapbooks, online albums and photos of her famous daughter hanging on the walls.

“She was inspired by theater at a young age when she went to see her older siblings in (high school) plays,” Enos said.

At HSPVA she developed a talent for theater, not only in acting but in costume and set design. Enos recalled the days of commuting to HSPVA on her way to work, then staying late to pick her daughter up from play practice. She also helped her daughter practice her lines and made sure she attended to her home-study seminary class for the Mormon church.

“She was a hard worker and always got good grades,” Enos said.

Mireille Enos received a first-place scholarship award in the Musicfest Theater Art competition for her role as Anne Frank during her senior year.

You do Tae Kwon Do, so how much did you enjoy kicking a zombie in the face?
Oh, that was so fun! That was so satisfying! It was like my only super-toughie moment in the movie, and it was really fun.
And you apparently have really powerful feet for your size?
Yes! It’s funny that you know that about me. I’m only five-foot-two but I wear size eight shoes, which is proportionally quite large. Do you wear an eight? It’s actually not a bad size to wear. It’s easy to find shoes, and I can share with lots of my girlfriends. Peter Sarsgaard and I were sitting on set [for The Killing] one day, and I saw him staring at my feet. He was like, “You have almost the same size feet as my wife, but you’re so short!” It was so funny.
Do you feel like there’s a zombie theme going on in your work because The Killing got resurrected?
It must be a theme for me, dead things that come back. Although I think the audience of The Killing would be very surprised if the killer this season turned out to be a zombie, if that’s the route we took. We’d be creepy copycats!

She says one of the most terrifying moments in her career was kissing Brad Pitt, which kind of makes you want to live in one of Mireille Enos’s nightmares.

The Emmy-nominated star of AMC’s The Killing says she had to kiss Pitt on the second day of shooting World War Z, which not only raised the stakes of the on-screen romance between their characters, it reminded everyone involved that they weren’t just making an epic zombie movie. They were telling a human story.

“A person would have to live in a cave not to know Brad is one of our bigger stars, but what makes him so wonderful is that he is a down-to-earth normal guy,” says Enos.

“As soon as we met, that was clear. He put me at ease, as he does with everyone. And from that moment on, it just felt like a collaboration.”

Though plagued by rumours of cost overruns and production snags, Enos says the nasty gossip surrounding the multi-million-dollar adaptation of Max Brooks’s book is just hype and giddy malevolence – the product of a shallow, jealous industry.

“There was always the awareness that it was a very large story we were trying to tell. That it was very ambitious. And that the script was constantly evolving as we were trying to figure out what the best way of adapting the novel might be,” she says.

ot since David Lynch’s Twin Peaks (1990–91) has a whodunit captured television audiences the way AMC’s The Killing has. Mireille Enos plays Sarah Linden, the complicated, obsessive detective driven to find the killer of a teenage girl in Seattle. Enos’s Linden is rarely seen out of a variety of bulky Fair Isle sweaters, of which the actress remarks, “I think they have two versions of each sweater, but there’s the ‘favorite one’ I wore for, like, four episodes—I hated that sweater by the end!” The Killing, which had the daring to take two full years to solve the murder, earned Enos an Emmy nomination the first season. “People love a thriller, but also there’s this rich character development, and because of the luxury of only working on one case for two seasons you get to live with these people, and through all the betrayals,” says Enos. The Killing, which got picked up for a third season, returns on June 2.

After attending Brigham Young University as a theater major, Enos appeared on Broadway in 2005 as Honey in a revival of Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? and earned a Tony nomination. For three years she played the memorable role(s) of the good and bad twins Kathy and JoDean Marquart on the HBO series Big Love. In January of this year, Enos stepped out of the sweater and into the 1940s as Josh Brolin’s wife in Warner Bros.’ Gangster Squad. In her new film, World War Z, the highly anticipated apocalyptic zombie film from Paramount, which opens this month, she gets to play wife to another gorgeous leading man, who is featured on this month’s cover: Brad Pitt.

Q: Where were you when you first heard The Killing was coming back to AMC?

A: I was in Atlanta shooting a dark and intense action movie. I was super busy, which I think was a great way to find out that it was coming back. My life was already rich, and then I was like, OK, this is the next cool thing to take on. I had always felt disappointed, because this season’s case was laced all the way through the first two seasons, and it always seemed sad to me that we wouldn’t address that. So that was really exciting, the idea of getting to attack that again.

Q: Is there a side of Linden that you didn’t get to show in previous seasons that you look forward to exploring this time?

A: I don’t know if I had any preconceived idea about that. Linden has spent a year trying to get healthy, so she’s in a much more vulnerable place. It’s created an interesting dynamic, with her being much more open and then stepping back into the police force, and that being very complicated for her.
