Missy Peregrym Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Jun 16, 1982
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001
  • Birth Name: Melissa Peregrym

Canadian actress Missy Peregrym (born Melissa Peregrym in Surrey, British Columbia) specialized in slightly edgy and gritty television outings during her early years on-camera. She debuted at 20 years old, under the aegis of producer [[Performer~P10397~James Cameron~jamescameron]], with a guest appearance on that director's white-hot action series [[Feature~V220882~Dark Angel~darkangel[tvseries]]] (playing a character named Hottie Blood). Peregrym then essayed a role in the short-lived weekly martial arts actioner [[Feature~V284173~Black Sash~blacksash[tvseries]]] (in 2003, as a young woman hell-bent on unbridled vengeance). In 2004, she appeared on the cult superhero series [[Feature~V255964~Smallville~smallville[tvseries]]] as Molly Griggs, aka Brainwave (a role she revisted in 2006 for a series of webisodes called "The Vengeance Chronicles"). Later in 2004, Peregrym took on a regular role on the teen drama [[Feature~V315706~Life As We Know It~lifeasweknowit[tvseries]]] as the soccer-playing Jackie Bradford, but the show failed to gain a significant audience, and was canceled after less than half a season.

Peregrym's next project, however, proved to be her highest-profile to that date; she took on the lead in the inspirational sports drama [[Feature~V326393~Stick It~stickit]] (2006) -- playing a rebellious 17-year-old gymnast who achieves her full potential thanks to the tutelage of a die-hard, no-nonsense coach ([[Performer~P3197~Jeff Bridges~jeffbridges]]). Not long after that, Peregrym was cast as a recurring character on the massively popular superhero series [[Feature~V358376~Heroes~heroes[tvseries]]], playing the deceptive Candice Wilmer, who could make people around her see whatever version of reality she chose. In fall 2007, the actress captured another regular role on a supernatural-themed series, the comedy drama [[Feature~V409727~Reaper~reaper[tvseries]]], about a slacker who, on his 21st birthday, finds out that his parents sold his soul to the devil, whom he must now work for. Peregrym played his charming girl-next-door love interest, Andi. After Reaper ended its run, Peregrym found still more success with her next project, the series Rookie Blue. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
