Miranda Rae Mayo was born in Fresno, California USA, on 14 August 1990 – her zodiac sign is Leo, and she holds American nationality.

Early life, parents and education
Miranda was raised in Fresno by her parents, about whom nothing’s known as she respects their privacy; it’s said that her father’s a gardener, and that her mother’s working as a cashier at a local supermarket. Because Miranda hasn’t spoken of having any siblings, most people believe her to be an only child.
She became interested in acting while attending Roosevelt High School, where she was a member of its drama club, and starred in many plays performed at the school, and at a local theatre. Miranda was also into various sports during her four years there, as she wanted to shape her figure to look good when she finally launched her acting career.
Upon matriculating in 2008, she moved to Los Angeles, California, and worked as a model for three years, prior to launching her acting career.

Luke and Miranda were apparently together for just over a year, and were spotted spending time together on multiple occasions in 2015 and 2016.
