Early life and childhood

Mikaela was born on 12 July 1984, in Colbert, Washington, so under the influence of the sun sign Cancer. Her mother’s name is Nancy Hoover – Mehrizi is Mikaela’s middle name which is Nancy’s maiden name. Her father’s name is Frank R. Hoover, Jr. Her parents come from an Italian, Persian, German and Spanish descent. There is no information on any siblings.


The information on where she attended high school is not available, but her parents had her take dance lessons from the age of two, and she participated in several school plays, and appeared in various local commercials. She was active in high school and was a cheerleader as well as the captain of her school dance team. She was also involved with the debating team.

She enrolled at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles in the theater program, and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in theatre.

She once said ‘My parents have truly gone above and beyond in not only supporting me but also encouraging me to follow my dreams. My dad’s only wish was that I made sure to go to college for theatre and study my craft.’


She first appeared on TV as Cami in “Sam Has 7 Friends” in 2006.

James Gunn, the director of the movie, offered her the role, and she had to shoot her scenes at the same time when she was supposed to be the maid of honor at her best friend’s wedding – she decided to skip on the wedding and says it was worth it.

She said ‘It was really fun because James Gunn, the director, is a really good friend, so it was cool to be able to work with him. I love seeing him in action and watching him direct. All of my scenes were with those two and Peter Serafinowicz, and those three were all wonderful.’
