Mishael Morgan was born in San Fernando, Trinidad. At the age of five, her family emigrated to Toronto, Ontaio, Canada. Mishael caught the acting bug at the age of ten, during her elementary school's production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat. She didn't pursue acting professionally until a chance meeting with her now agent, David Ritchie. Mishael studied Political Science at York University and had just accepted an offer to Ottawa University's LLB program when Ritchie convinced her to try her hand at acting. Mishael impressed producers at her very first audition, landing her a role in Trey Songz "Wonder Woman" music video.
