Familiar to television audiences as the illusive Candace Wilmer from Heroes, Missy Peregrym stands out in the industry as one of Hollywood's most promising young actors.
She began her career as a model at the age of 18, booking print and commercial jobs for Mercedes Benz, Sprint Canada and the Olympics. Peregrym caught the eye of casting directors and naturally transitioned into acting, landing her first television role on James Cameron’s action-drama series, Dark Angel.
She has gone on to star in a variety of television projects, including the first two successful seasons of ABC’s Rookie Blue, the martial arts series Black Sash and the drama Life as We Know It, in addition to guest appearances on The Chris Isaak Show, Smallville and Andromeda. Peregrym was also nominated for two Leo Awards (2008, 2009) for Best Female Lead Performance for her role as Andi in the series Reaper.
Her feature film debut came in 2006 opposite Jeff Bridges in the movie Stick It, in which Peregrym played a rebellious girl who is ordered to participate in a regimented sports world.
