Dash Mihok was born in the West Village of New York City on May 24th, 1974 to parents with ties to the New York stage and was raised in a trendy artist building. He attended many different schools including the Bronx High School of Science during his freshman year in 1988. While going to high school, he participated in City Kids, a foundation in New York City whose purpose is to "engage and develop young people" through programs dealing with self-esteem, leadership, and communication starring a group of multi-ethnic teen actors and Jim Henson's muppets. Dash was part of the City Kids Repertory, which puts on productions all over the city.
Much of the New York native's early work was lensed in his hometown. The young actor appeared in guest spots on the NYC-filmed dramas "New York Undercover," "NYPD Blue," and "Law & Order". Mihok made his starring film debut in the 1994 racially-themed independent feature "Black Is White" before receiving particularly strong reviews for his role as a mentally-unbalanced young man in the CBS TV-movie thriller "Murderous Intent". An appearance in Barry Levinson's hard-hitting "Sleepers" followed. While Mihok's performances in these New York-filmed features were strong, he first gained real notice with his featured role in Baz Luhrmann's modern take on "Romeo and Juliet".
He was a featured regular on the CBS sitcom "Pearl", starring as Rhea Pearlman's rebellious son Joey. He also had a 1999 recurring role on The WB's college drama "Felicity" as Lynn, a competitive swimmer attending the fictional University of New York. He has also had a guest appearance on "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation".
To date, he has been in a variety of independent and high-budget films, the most recent of which being "Hollywoodland" and the upcoming "Firehouse Dog" (as of March 2007).
