Michelle Barber was born in Perth, Western Australia. She discovered her passion for the performing arts at an early age. Life took her in a few different directions before she decided to actively pursue this path in her late twenties.
Upon relocating to Vancouver in 2015 to further her career as a Film and SFX Makeup Artist, Michelle decided to try her hand at acting and has not looked back since. She committed herself to extensive study with some of the most reputable and in demand coaches in Vancouver. She has trained at Vancouver Acting School, Railtown Actors Studio, The Foundry, Haven Studios and JBA. Michelle has also gained industry experience working as a background performer on major TV series and films, such as ‘Arrow’, ‘Supernatural’, ‘Lucifer’, ‘Supergirl’ and ‘The 100’. Her first film credit came from a Telus backed film called ‘Butch’. She is determined to continue expanding and growing as an actor, and is planning to relocate to London in the future for further training.
Michelle is a hard working, reliable, friendly individual who enjoys healthy practices such as meditating, yoga, hiking and exploring the outdoors. She holds duel citizenship for Australia and the United Kingdom, and permanent residency for Canada.
