The Praise 1300am Family is sending actress Megan Good Birthday Wishes today!!

Good was born on August 8, 1981, in Panorama City, Los Angeles, California. Her mother, Tyra Wardlow-Doyle, worked as Good’s manager into her teens, and her father, Leondis “Leon” Good, is an LAPD police officer. Good has said of her ancestry that her maternal grandmother is “Jewish and African. My mother’s father was Cherokee and something else. My dad’s mother’s Puerto Rican and black, and his father was from Barbados.”[5] Good was raised with her three siblings in Canyon Country (now known as Santa Clarita), California. She began her acting career around the age of four.

In the early stages of her career, Good worked as an extra on television shows such as Doogie Howser, M.D. and Amen. When she was 13, she was cast in her first film, the 1995 comedy Friday.She first gained critical recognition for her performance as the troubled teen Cisely Batiste in Kasi Lemmons‘ 1997 film Eve’s Bayou; she received two award nominations, including her first NAACP Image Award nomination. According to Good, she grew up “super nerdy, super skinny, buckteeth, big ole afro and yet I had a sense of confidence about myself, like, ‘they just don’t get it yet’”. She was a fan of Justin Timberlake and Usher in her early teens. Good did not have any role models until early adulthood, when she began admiring actress Charlize Theron.
