Who is Miranda Frigon?
Born on 2nd February 1980, in Edmonton, Alberta Canada, Miranda Frigon is an actress and singer-songwriter, perhaps best known for her work on “Day of The Dead”. At 5ft 3in (1.60m) tall and weighing 125lbs (57kgs), with vital statistics of 29-24-33, Miranda cuts an impressive figure, and is also admired for her striking blue eyes. There’s little available information regarding Miranda’s parents and upbringing, although we do know that the charismatic redhead attended the University of Alberta, and later furthered her studies at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York City, where she majored in dance and gymnastics.
Having started out in modelling and commercial work, Miranda earned her first acting credit in 1998, playing Veronica in five episodes of the family-friendly comedy show “Honey, I Shrunk The Kids”. In 2000, the Canadian made brief cameos in “Higher Ground” and “First Wave”, a pattern that the thespian would follow for the next couple of years, while searching for more lucrative roles. Miranda’s first TV movies, “Avalanche Valley” and “Dead in a Heartbeat”, were also well-received by viewers, thanks to their thrilling plot twists and imaginative storylines.
From 2003 to 2004, Miranda played Tech Agent Susan Carver, one of the main characters in the gripping sci-fi drama “Jake 2.0”. Fans of the show were left heartbroken when the series was pulled after just one season, having run for 16 episodes, and being nominated for an Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films award. The actress worked harder than ever over the next two years, with cameos in “Betty”, “The Dead Zone”, and “The New Adventures of Old Christine”, also branching out into indie shorts, and playing Julie Cassidy in the terrifying horror movie “It Waits”. Despite some of Miranda’s projects being commercial duds, the Canadian was undeterred, and toiled night and day to perfect her craft, which led to her being cast as Danu in the popular fantasy mini-series “Sanctuary”.
The 2010s marked a new beginning for Miranda’s Hollywood aspirations, as the stunning redhead joined the cast of “Heartland” as Janice Wayne, appearing in 11 episodes until her character left the soap opera in 2016. In 2012, the actress also became one of the protagonists in “Primeval: New World”, displaying her talents while playing the courageous and spunky Ange Finch in the action-drama series. Feel-good TV movies also became Miranda’s specialty, as can be seen by her heartfelt performances in “October Kiss”, “Becoming Santa”, and “A Cookie Cutter Christmas”.
Another notable role was her portrayal of Ellie in “Her Infidelity”, a straight-to-TV production narrating the story of a lonely housewife who enjoys a torrid romance with a handsome teacher, until later discovering his psychopathic tendencies. Other recurring roles in Miranda’s varied career include her portrayal of Chief Lynn Smith in “Aurora Teagarden Mysteries”, and her role as Paula Bowman in “Day of The Dead”, a zombie drama created by Jed Elinoff and Scott Thomas which sees the main cast try to survive the first 24 hours following a life-changing apocalyptic event. Miranda, who has been dubbed “one of the greatest Canadian actresses in history”, shared her positive experiences on the set of the latter series, saying in a gushing interview: “The cast was lovely, I met so many wonderful people…
The writing was amazing, and it was a great experience playing this role in particular”. It’s not known if the series will be renewed for a second season.
Musical Career & Personal Life
Miranda, who is rightly described as a “triple threat” – a performer who can sing, dance, and act – launched a Kickstarter campaign in 2014, to fund the making of her debut album. Appealing to fans via her website and a new YouTube channel, the redhead offered her supporters incentives such as digital downloads and thank-you videos in exchange for their donations. In just over a month, Miranda exceeded her $17,500 goal thanks to donations from almost 200 people around the world.
At the time, her humble but promising discography included the singles “Fallen”, “Hiding Place”, and “All I Need Is You”. The successful campaign helped Miranda fund “First”, her debut EP album which came with five riveting songs – “Invisible”, “A Little While”, “Pride”, “Heartbreak”, and “I’ll Take You”. With that said, some fans who donated to the Kickstarter felt that the project wasn’t worth the $22,000 they’d sunk into funding the Canadian’s musical aspirations. Despite the music video to “Invisible” garnering over half a million views since 2016, the actress appears to have put her singing career on the backburner, preferring to focus on acting and the many changes in her personal life.
We’re aware that the actress married her other half, Ben Falcioni, in a private 2015 ceremony, and the couple welcomed their daughter to the world in February 2018. Ben was born in Rancho Cucamonga, California, and majored in law at the prestigious La Verne University. It’s unknown how he met Miranda, but the couple’s relationship seems to be going well, as demonstrated by the actress’s loving Instagram snaps in which she shows off her family. It’s believed that Ben currently works as a lawyer. The performer, who leads a vegetarian lifestyle, and enjoys working out to maintain her physique, hasn’t discussed her relationship much, despite sharing some rare snaps from their wedding on the couple’s four-year anniversary.
Miranda also describes Ben as her “love, best friend, and teacher” and has also thanked him for his constant support over their years, “supporting me no matter what and always putting my happiness first”.
Thanks to a lucrative two-decade acting career, Miranda is net worth is estimated at over $500,000 as of early 2022, with some of her six-figure fortune being attributed to her music sales. Despite the performer not having any confirmed projects lined up for 2022, her wealth is sure to increase if “Day of the Dead” is renewed for a second season.
