Biography and Early Life
Born Marie-Charms Mishael Morgan, the actress Mishael Morgan came to be on July 15, 1986, in San Fernando, a city in Trinidad and Tobago. But she was raised a pure-bred American. How come?
Mishael was only five when her family emigrated from Trinidad and Tobago to North America. An authoritative source reports that the family first settled briefly in New York before moving on to Canada. But, it seems Mishael was too young then and their stay in New York was too brief for Mishael to recognize that part of her family history. This is because, by her own testimony, the family emigrated directly from Trinidad and Tobago to Canada. It all goes to show how much the public could know famous people more than they know themselves.
Who are Her Parents?
Mishael Morgan’s father is Michael Morgan while her mother is Sharon. She is the second in a line of three daughters born to Michael and his wife. Her elder sister is named Maggris while her younger sister is named Monique. You can as well call them ‘the 3M sisters’; Maggris, Mishael and Monique.
As already said, Mishael Morgan’s interest in acting was aroused at the tender age of ten. But along the line, she began to lose that interest. After completing a degree in political science at York University, Mishael’s mind was set on becoming an attorney rather than an actress. In keeping with her new career interest, Mishael had just received an offer to Ottawa University’s LL.B program when something happened that revived her childhood interest in acting. So, what happened? She had a chance meeting with David Ritchie who is now her agent.
It was David Ritchie who saw the talent in her and convinced her to go into acting. Ritchie was proved right beyond expectation at the first audition Mishael attended. She so impressed the producers that she immediately got a role in the 2007 Trey Songz’ music video Wonder Woman.
Only ten months after Wonder Woman, Mishael landed a regular series role at the audition for YTV’s single-season sitcom, Family Biz. There, she acted as Tracy. Around the same time also (2008 – 2009), she got a recurring role in the Canadian teen drama show, The Best Years. In 2012, she landed a recurring role in The Republic Of Doyle, a CBC Television comedy-drama series and CW Network’s Beauty And The Beast. Mishael has so far been part of feature films like Casino Jack (2010), Total Recall (2012), and a couple of others.
Mishael Morgan’s biggest screen appearance is no doubt as Hilary Curtis in the CBS daytime drama, The Young And The Restless. Which she began featuring on from 2013. But in June 2018, Mishael announced that she would be leaving the show. Eventually, her final appearance on the show was on July 27, 2018. Her agent, David Ritchie, on another occasion, confirmed that Mishael left the show because she failed to negotiate an increase in her salary.
