CHICAGO - Jan. 25, 2014 - PRLog -- Mimi Sagadin, returning home to Chicago two-days ago from her first time at Sundance, is soaking in the afterglow from the highly successful, Bel Air Film Festival hosted, award-winning “Return to the Hiding Place” premiere. The film, directed by Peter C. Spencer, also stars Academy nom’d “Alone Yet Not Alone” castmembers Joanie Stewart, Sagadin’s screen-sister Betsie ten Boom, and Kelly Greyson.

Mimi Sagadin stars as the well-known Dutch hero of the Holocaust, Corrie ten Boom alongside renown Emmy-nominated John Rhys-Davies ("Lord of the Rings" trilogy, "Indiana Jones") who plays Eusi, a rabbi from Amsterdam, who Corrie ten Boom aids in hiding from Hitler’s secret police the Gestapo.

“This film is critical for our culture today… I’m so proud to be involved in this picture” states Sagadin’s co-star John Rhys Davies about the 9+-festival winning film. Corrie ten Boom’s personal assistant Pam Rosewell Moore commented “I felt like I was with Corrie all over again…” after seeing Sagadin’s portrayal of her friend.

Mimi’s acting career began when she trained in improv at Chicago’s infamous Second City, since then, she has starred in over 40 projects including Ron Howard’s “The Dilemma” with Vince Vaughn and
Jennifer Connelly, “Side Effects” with Katherine Heigl and leads two, true-story feature films “Return to the Hiding Place” and biographical, country-set romantic dramedy “Princess Cut” releasing 2015.

"Mimi's work as an actress in “Return to the Hiding Place” has that old-school raw, craftsmanship which transcends you as an audience to authentically experience life during the pressures of that era,” says Jenn Gotzon ("Frost/Nixon", "Alone Yet Not Alone"), Sagadin’s co-star in “Princess Cut” who also shares working with the same Oscar-winning director, Ron Howard.

Mimi’s passion began at age 8, though it wasn’t until Sagadin was in her 30’s when her best friend from Chicago actress Maggie Malone urged her to pursue her dream. Together they started a local improvisational group called Mission IMPROVable. Sagadin continued performing as an active ensemble member in numerous troupes in the Windy City.

Several-years later, while playing a minor role in Chicago’s stage play “The Hiding Place,” the stage cast was offered the opportunity to audition for the film. In 2010, Mimi Sagadin was cast to play Corrie ten Boom in feature film “Return to the Hiding Place” launching Sagadin’s career and dream to work on movies that bring hope. Sagadin says, “I feel like I’m Moses coming down from Mount Sinai,” recapping her first time tasting the big movie scene during Sundance and guest on her first talk show Park City TV’s Mountain Views this past week.

Sagadin is repped by Chicago’s elite Grossman and Jack Talent and two boutique agencies Ambassador Talent and Lily’s Talent whom send her out commercially.
