Emmy-award winning actress Mishael Morgan set out to become an attorney, but a catastrophic accident, which left her injured with a broken neck, changed the course of her life. Surviving the accident instilled in Morgan the importance of seizing every opportunity. While attending university to prepare for law school, Morgan met her agent by chance at her job tending bar at a Toronto nightclub. Having always had an interest in performance, Morgan took the plunge and committed herself to the craft. Two years – and two series regular roles – later, she turned down her admittance to law school and became a fulltime actor. Best known for her roles as Hilary Curits and Amanda Sinclaire on “The Young and the Restless,” Morgan made history when she became the first Black woman to win a Daytime Emmy in the Lead Actress category. She has also made many recurring and guest appearances in television shows such as “Chicago Med,” “Most Dangerous Game,” “Supernatural” and the hit Canadian series, “Republic of Doyle.” Morgan lives in Los Angeles with her husband and two children.
