Missy Peregrym was actually christened “Melissa,” but given her reportedly tomboyish childhood, perhaps she thought her given name was a trifle too girly. (As though “Missy” isn’t.) Born in Montréal in 1982, she’s done a few films and a whole lot of television. Her first starring role was Reaper on the CW from 2007 to 2009.
From there, she went to Rookie Blue, which aired for six years on Canada’s Global network and on ABC in the States.
Her most recent film was Backcountry (2014), a scarefest set in the Canadian woods. And if she needs a ride, all she has to do is call.
For those who must have video, here’s a 2014 interview from George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight.
Well played, George. I think.
