Misha Osherovich - Actor and Filmmaker on Body Image and His Own Battle with an Eating Disorder

Misha Osherovich is a Russian-American actor, filmmaker, and mental health/LGBTQ+ activist. 
Misha's latest short film E.VERY D.AY is currently screening at festivals internationally. The film is autobiographical - written and produced by Misha - that gives the audience a look inside the minds of people affected by eating disorders and distorted body image.
You can also catch Misha in AMC's new series NOS4A2.  He can also be seen in theaters in Warner Bros' new film THE GOLDFINCH.
Follow Misha on Instagram or Twitter.
Misha aims to use his platform in TV/film and on social media (as well as this podcast) to speak frankly and openly about body image and eating disorder recovery from the perspective of the entertainment industry, as well as the intersection between queerness and mental health.
