Mica Burton was born Michaela Jean- Estelle Burton under the zodiac sign of Cancer on 8 July 1994, in Los Angeles, California USA; she holds American nationality, and her ethnicity is African-American. She is an actress with 10 credits to her name, a YouTuber, streamer, model, and cosplayer, perhaps known best for her role as Reani (as her voice) in the series “Critical Role” which is a live weekly show in which a group of professional voice actors try to survive adventures in an epic “Dungeon & Dragons” game.
Early life, family, and education
Mica was raised in Sherman Oaks, California alongside her brother Eian Burton Smith, by their parents Stephanie Cozart who is a professional make-up artist, and father LeVar Burton, who is an actor, director, and children’s television host, perhaps best known for his roles as Kunta Kinte in the series “Roots”, and as Lieutenant Commander Geordi La Forge in “Star Trek: The Next Generation”.
Mica attended a local high school, and upon matriculating in 2012 enrolled at the Theatre and Dance School of the University of Michigan, from which she graduated in 2016 with a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts in Theatre.
Mica had dreamt about becoming famous for a long time, however, it all began when she made her first appearance in the television game show “On the Spot” alongside her father. After that she appeared in the series “Let’s Play Minecraft”, followed by her role as Jules in the movie “Lazer Team”, a science fiction action comedy starring Michael Jones, Burnie Burns and Gavin Free, which was nominated for the Streamy Award Best Feature. Mica was a member of the “Rooster Teeth” company for several years, and worked as an editor, a co-host, and head of streaming at the “Achievement Hunter” video gaming site.
In the television mini-series “The Eleven Little Roosters”, she portrayed The Ministry of Moose, followed by her appearance in the series “Rooster Teeth Shorts”, and her role as Concert Fan in the short movie “Ninja Sex Party: Danny Don’t You Know”.
In the following years, she had roles in the series “Narrative Telephone” and in the “Overwatch League”. Her most recent role as Delilah was in the episode “Isolated” of the series “Vampire: The Masquerade: L. A. By Night”.
Mica is no longer an employee at the “Rooster Teeth” company, since 3 June 2020, when she publicly spoke about her decision to leave; the reason was, as she said ‘the company’s lack of support for her during the period of online harassment.’
Mica subsequently moved to Los Angeles to pursue her cosplaying, modeling, and acting career.

Mica has her eponymous YouTube channel, launched on 8 January 2014, however, there are no videos uploaded, or they may be deleted, but she still has over 2,500 subscribers on this channel.
Love life and relationships
There were various rumors concerning Mica’s love life and sexual orientation, however, she is openly talking about her bisexual orientation, as she said she loves people no matter what gender they are.
She was dating her girlfriend, known as Minnie Mooncos, back in 2017; they both enjoy cosplaying, so Mica was posting pictures of the two of them in cosplay costumes kissing and hugging, with the description ‘look at my beautiful girlfriend! I love her!’ There is no information about them still being together.
However, there is some gossip circulating the internet about her relationship with another cosplay girl known as Jessica; Mica posted a picture on her Instagram account featuring the two of them hugging, although she hasn’t spoken about this woman or any others (women or men).

Mica is into traveling, thanks to her work as a cosplayer; she has visited a couple of US states to participate in cosplay events. Her favorite travel destination is San Diego, California, and her dream travel destination is Disneyland in Paris, France.
She is a big fan of anime and Disney movies – her cosplay costumes are mostly Disney-themed – her love for cosplay has existed since childhood, when her father first gave her a costume, which she wore every time she would watch her favorite anime, “Sailor Moon”.
She is also a big fan of video games – her father played with her when she was younger, and that helped her in the future to launch her career in the Rooster Teeth company.
