She matriculated from Oak Park High School before enrolling at the Actors Training Centre of Manitoba.
Due to her origin, she is a fluent speaker of Greek, and is taking great care of her cultural heritage.
Interested in acting from her junior years, upon completing her studies in 2007, Spiridakos relocated to Vancouver to pursue a career in the moviemaking industry full time. She didn’t need to wait long as her debut acting engagement occurred not long after, when she appeared in a support role in an episode of the “Supernatural” TV series.
This was followed by several small screen appearances in TV series such as “Bionic Woman” and “Aliens in America”, as well as in TV movies including “Every Second Counts” and “The Secret Lives of Second Wives”. On the path to stardom Tracy stepped in 2009, when she was cast for the recurring role of Becky Richards in the television comedy series “Majority Rules!”.
