Madeline Brewer is an American actress and former model. She is known best for portraying Tricia Miller on the Netflix original series "Orange is the New Black," as well as Miranda Cates on "Hemlock Grove."
Madeline Brewer was born on May 1, 1992 in Pitman, New Jersey. Prior to making a go of it as a Hollywood actress, the young blonde spent her youth competing in beauty pageant competitions. In 2010, she was even crowned the official "Miss Pitman" in her native New Jersey. But like many pageant competitors, the desire to be in front of a crowd only grew with time, and she began to take more of an interest in theater.
Madeline's career as an actress was a bit unusual in the fact that prior to landing her first official (and recurring) role on the Netflix series "Orange is the New Black" in 2013, she was said to have no prior acting experience. Of course, that simply meant she hadn't acted on a TV series or film before. She had, however, held roles in productions of both High School Musical and Rent in New Jersey. Coupling this with her background attending American Musical and Dramatic Academy where she took courses in Acting, Voice Production and Speech, Musical Theater, and Dance, her sudden rise to stardom begins to make a bit more sense.
Since landing her first role on a TV series, Madeline's career began to build steam exceptionally quickly. Not only was she cast on another popular Netflix series, "Hemlock Grove," the following year, but she was also then picked up to be represented by ICM Partners in May 2014. At the same time, she was also still repped by Inphenate and Schreck, Rose, Dapello, Adams, as well.
