Happy Birthday to Michaela Conlin!


Happy birthday to Michaela Conlin, born on June 9, 1978, to a Chinese mother and Irish-American father in Allentown, Pennsylvania.
Best known for her role as Angela Montenegro on Fox’s crime drama “Bones,” Conlin was originally trained for the theater.
After appearing on stage throughout her childhood, Conlin attended New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. While in New York, she was chosen to appear on the cable TV documentary series “The It Factor,” which focused on the lives of young actors.
Soon after “The It Factor,” Conlin moved to Los Angeles and appeared in a role as an idealistic intern on the show “MDs,” and then as an attorney in ABC’s “The D.A.”
Also performing in films, Conlin played in (another) attorney role in “The Lincoln Lawyer,” opposite Matthew McConaughey, Marisa Tomei, and Bryan Cranston. Her role as May in fantasy movie “Enchanted,” with Amy Adams, was ultimately “trimmed,” for the theater, but appears in the DVD bonus features.
In 2008, Conlin was nominated for an Asian Excellence Award in the category of Supporting Television actress, for her role on “Bones.”
