Beverley Ann Mitchell
January 22, 1981
Arcadia, California, U.S.
|Alma mater||Loyola Marymount University|
Mitchell was born in Arcadia, California to Sharon Mitchell (née Weisz), an office manager, and David Mitchell, an auto racing promoter. Her parents have since divorced and remarried and she has a half-brother, Giuseppe Tomasino, from her father's second marriage.
Mitchell's first major film role was in The Crow: City of Angels, playing teenaged drug addict Grace. During the filming of The Crow, in 1996, she auditioned as a child actress for the role of Mary Camden in a new family drama, 7th Heaven. Producers initially turned her down as they did not think she was suitable to play Mary. However, when she read for the part of sister Lucy, she was instantly cast. 7th Heaven was very popular, lasting for 11 seasons.
In 2000, she had a small part in The Amanda Show as a customer in Moody's Point.
In 2003, Mitchell played Erica Enders-Stevens in the Disney Channel original movie Right on Track, based on the early career of the 2014 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series Pro Stock champion and her sister Courtney Enders, who was played by Brie Larson.
In 2005, during a hiatus from filming 7th Heaven, Mitchell played Laura Hunter in the horror sequel Saw 2.
Her lifelong dream of becoming a country music singer came true when, in 2006, she recorded her debut album, Beverley Mitchell with record producer D. Scott Miller in Nashville, Tennessee. She co-wrote eight of the songs featured on the album, including the hit single "Angel".
In 2007, Mitchell starred in the TV movie I Know What I Saw, which aired on the Lifetime network. She also planned to record a second album, and hopes to record her own version of the song "When You Say Nothing At All" on the album.
In 1997, Mitchell's 15-year-old friend Angela was killed in a car accident. In the book Chicken Soup for the Preteen Soul, Mitchell described how the death deeply affected her. The 7th Heaven episode "Nothing Endures But Change" was based on her experience. Her song "Angel", which is featured on her debut album, was also written for her late friend.
On December 31, 2005, during a trip to Colorado, Mitchell became engaged to her long-time boyfriend, accountant Michael Cameron. They originally planned to get married in 2007, but decided to postpone the wedding due to the release of Mitchell's debut album. The wedding took place on October 1, 2008 in Ravello, Italy on the Amalfi Coast. Former 7th Heaven castmates Jessica Biel and Mackenzie Rosman served as bridesmaids. They have three children, including two daughters and a son.
