She was recently cast in the upcoming Lifetime movie, Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever (2014). Born in New Westminster, British Columbia and raised in the neighboring town, Megan started acting at an early age. Having appeared in a number of commercials for notable brands, such as Mattel and Hasbro, all before the age of 6, Megan was able to explore other acting avenues and started auditioning for television and film. She quickly booked a series of television roles, including Painkiller Jane (2007), Aliens in America (2007), Fringe (2008) and Life Unexpected (2010). Most recently, Megan can be seen in Motive (2013), Supernatural (2005) and television movie, Profil criminel (2013). Megan's big break came when she played the young version of Amanda Seyfried's character "Needy" in the cult classic, Jennifer's Body (2009). Casting directors loved the comparison of Megan to Amanda, and again cast her as a younger version of the starlet in the Warner Brothers film, Red Riding Hood (2011). Megan was nominated for a Young Artist Award (Best Performance in a Feature Film - Young Actress Ten and Under) earlier this year for her role as "Young Valerie" in the hit thriller. This was her second nomination by the Young Artist Awards in 2012, as Megan was also honored for her work in the television movie, Un peu, beaucoup, à la folie (2011), (Best Performance in a TV Movie-Supporting Young Actress). Megan was immediately cast as "The Red Queen" in the box office hit, Resident Evil: Retribution (2012). When Megan isn't acting, she enjoys soccer, hockey, horseback riding, dancing and swimming. But the fun doesn't stop there; Megan loves making homemade iMovies and is also an avid reader. Her favorite book is currently "The Hunger Games". Furthermore, Megan has a big heart and enjoys working with charities that focus on children and animal support. In the future, she hopes to work with Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep and Matt Damon, as they share the same admiration and commitment that Megan does to the craft of acting. Megan is represented by Lesa Kirk / Open Entertainment and David Burns / Liz Bell Agency.
