Cliché: Did you always see yourself working in television?
Mikaela Hoover: I have always known acting was my passion from a very young age. I loved to perform in school plays and was on a competitive dance team growing up. When I graduated from high school, I moved out to Los Angeles to get my degree in Theater at Loyola Marymount University.
How does it feel to be featured in some of television’s hottest shows?
It’s really awesome to be able to work on any television show and even more amazing when the actors and crew are fun to work with! I have been very lucky so far!
What’s something that your fans don’t know about you?
I grew up in a small town on the river and I am a small town girl at heart. I love listening to country music and spending my summers camping at the lake. Also, I am a huge Eminem fan and my guilty pleasure is watching Supernatural re-runs.
Besides acting, what activities do you enjoy?
I really enjoy dancing.
What are some beauty products you cannot live without?
My Kiehl’s face moisturizer and an eyelash curler.
What sort of thing can your fans look forward to seeing you in soon?
I have a couple of short films circling the film festivals soon. One is called Happy Anniversary, which is a comedy, and the other one is called Hide & Seek and it’s a horror film. I also have a web series called Zombie Basement that comes out this fall!
