Early Life and Career

A Canadian national, the actress and former model was born and named Melissa Peregrym on June 16, 1982, in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. His father is a Christian minister named Reverend Darrel Peregrym while her mother is Vanessa Peregrym, a homemaker. While we have little information about Missy Peregrym’s childhood including where and when she had her basic education, she revealed that she was a tomboy while growing up. After her elementary school, Missy proceeded to receive her high school education at Fleetwood Park Secondary School, a well-established public high school in Surrey, British Columbia, Canada.

Once her high school days were over, Missy Peregrym enrolled at Aurora College in the Northwest Territories (NWT) of Canada in 2004. While we do not know the course that Peregrym pursued at college, we know she had been about 4 years into her professional career as a model before she enrolled at Aurora. She set out at 18 years of age under the guidance of Lizbell Agency. Initially, she had been focused on plying her modeling trade via print media. But it was her managers at Lizbell who advised her to shift to screen advertising. This shift turned out to work well for Peregrym as it opened doors for her to represent high-profile names such as Mercedes-Benz and the Olympic Games.

Missy Peregrym’s Husband and Family Members

Missy Peregrym has been married on two occasions. Her first marriage was with the American actor and singer Zachary Levi who is famous for starring as Chuck Bartowski in the action-comedy series Chuck. Missy’s marriage with Zachary was in June 2014 but it sadly never lasted up to a year as it ended in divorce in April 2015. The separation between them actually happened in December 2014 as per court documents.

With that marriage over, Missy stayed single for more than three years before getting hooked with the Australian actor Tom Oakley. Their wedding held on December 30, 2018, at Smogshoppe wedding venue in downtown Los Angeles, California. It was a splendid evening filled with love and laughter. The wedding took place in the presence of close their family and friends. Missy wore a strapless Vivienne Westwood gown beaming her smile all the way beside Tom who sported a black Ralph Lauren tuxedo. We hope this beauty continues to characterize their union.
