Miriam McDonald grew up in Toronto, where she went to the Ryerson University. Her career began in 1999 in an episode of the comedy series called “System Crash”, while from 2001 to 2003, she gave her voice to the animated series “Pecola”.

McDonald’s most notable role is as Emma Nelson in the Primetime Emmy Award-nominated romantic drama “Degrassi: The Next Generation” (2001-2010) – her character is essential for the story about the teenagers at the Degrassi Community School and their everyday troubles. The series was quite popular, and its success helped McDonald to increase her net worth significantly. In the meantime, she appeared alongside Marcia Gay Harden in the TV drama “She’s Too Young” (2004), playing the character of Dawn Gensler. Later, Miriam had a smaller part in Damian Lee’s drama called “The Poet” (2007) starring Daryl Hannah and Roy Scheider, while also in 2007, she starred in Farhad Mann’s horror “Devil’s Diary”, playing Heather in a story about the ancient book that has supernatural power and will fulfill any evil desire. By the end of the 2000s, McDonald had appeared in “Degrassi Spring Break Movie” (2008) and “Degrassi Goes Hollywood” (2009), but these movies weren’t half as successful as was the case with the series. Also, she had lead parts in such films as Jason Hreno’s thriller “Poison Ivy: The Secret Society” (2008) and Paul Ziller’s horror “The Sea Beast” (2008). Her characters Daisy and Carly McKenna are integral to the plot of these movies, and thanks to the lead roles in them, McDonald’s wealth improved considerably.

In 2010, Miriam played Emma Nelson again in the movie “Degrassi Takes Manhattan”, while in 2013, she appeared in two episodes of the fantasy series called “Lost Girl”. Most recently, McDonald had a part in David Hayter’s horror “Wolves” (2014), while from 2016 to 2017, she made two appearances on the show “Degrassi: Next Class”.

Regarding her personal life, Miriam McDonald’s most intimate details such as marital status and the number of children are unknown as she successfully manages to keep them out of the public eye. She likes to swim and play tennis, loves boxing, ballet, jazz, tap, and hip-hop – Miriam is apparently an excellent dancer and a certified yoga instructor. She is friends with Cassie Steele, Nina Dobrev, Megan Park, and Shenae Grimes-Beech.
