Mimi Michaels (born February 22, 1983)[1] is an American actress.

Early life[edit]

Michaels was born in Great Neck, Nassau County, New York. She attended LaGuardia High School of Performing Arts in New York City.[2] After graduating, on the high school dean's advice, rather than accepting a place at the SUNY Conservatory, she moved to Los Angeles to pursue her acting career.[3][4] Between acting jobs, she takes literature classes at the University of Southern California, where she majors in English.[3][5]

Michaels remembers herself playing at acting characters in costume at the age of three,[2] and acting professionally in commercials from the age of four.[3][4] One of her earliest childhood television roles was on Saturday Night Live[4][6] in 1991.[7] She has a family acting connection: her maternal grandparents had acted in vaudeville and stage drama,[4] and her brother Fred works for a film production company and as a writer.[1][3][8]

Acting career[edit]

Michaels's first part in Los Angeles was the title role in Aimee Semple McPherson (2006).[1][9] She played the evangelical preacher from the age of 15 into her 40s, which was a challenge for her developing acting skills. She had leading roles in several web series, the vampire movie 30 Days of Night: Dust to Dust (2008), the parody House of Heather,[5][6] and the MTV Films horror series Savage County.[10] In 2009, Michaels also had notable supporting roles in the big screen horror film Boogeyman 3, and the NBC television disaster miniseries Meteor: Path to Destruction.[9]
