As a child, Ms. Miranda was profoundly inspired by her grandmother who introduced her to classics like The Sound of Music, Grease, Oliver Twist, Nothing But Trouble and tons of Disney animated films. Thus, her interest in the performing arts was born. She studied Ballet at Etgar & Atkins Ballet School, competed in the Miss Teen Dallas Pageant, and played violin and piano. She credits James Belushi and Robert Townsend—both of whom she met at a young age—for inspiring her to become a devoted actress.
Miranda has modeled in many commercials and print ads for renowned companies such as; JC Penny, Nike, Old Navy, Sprite, TJ Maxx, Apple, Sony, Harley Davidson, Bed Head by TIGI, and many more. Her natural talent, determination and incredible presence have also landed her roles on other television series for major networks including ABC Family, The CW and TV Land. Fans will recognize her from Discovery Channel's "Endurance,” and “The Nine Lives of Chloe King,” along with her guest appearance on the “Dr.Phil” show speaking on universal issues surrounding teens. Nevertheless, her breakout role presently has been starring on "Pretty Little Liars,” as Shana Fring.
