So in light of baseball playoffs and the lack of OC until November, I decided that it would be good just to do a little biographical information of each character for the new few weeks. This week Marissa Cooper, better known outside of Orange County as Misha Barton.
Misha was born in London on January 24, 1986 and as early as 1995 was making her showtime debut. Misha is actually half English and half Irish. She moved to New York when she was still young and immediately was recognized. She was featured in several movies and TV Series including a voice on the kids show Kablam! and an appearance in All My Children, a popular soap opera. Her more famous movies included Notting Hill and The Sixth Sense. Before The OC she was in several smaller movies and some independent films. Once her debut in The OC, she hit box office and now has two movies coming out within the next year in which she had lead rolls.
Currently, she is a spokesperson for Neutrogena and attends The Professional Children's School in Manhattan, New York. She has aspirations to attend the Yale School of Drama in New Haven after high school. She has a pet cat named, Angelo.
