Rachel Miner is an American television and film actress. She is best known for her roles on series like "Supernatural," "Californication" and "Guiding Light."
Rachel Anne Miner was born on July 29, 1980 in New York City. A third generation professional entertainer, her father Peter Miner is an Emmy-winning director and acting teacher at New York's T. Schreiber Studio, while her mother Diane is an off-off-Broadway director and writer who assists her husband as an acting coach. Rachel's grandfather was respected producer and director Worthington Miner, while her grandmother was actress Frances Fuller.
Like many entertainers, especially actresses, Rachel knew she wanted to pursue a career as a performer from a very early age. By the time she was only 10, she had already trained with acting coaches, obtained an agent, and starred in two films, one of which was directed by the legendary Woody Allen. Of course, it was at age 12 that Rachel earned what could be known as her first "big break" when she was cast as Michelle Bauer on the soap opera "Guiding Light." The role lasted three years and earned her both an Emmy nomination and three Young Artist Awards.
Since her days of early success, the hits have kept on coming for Rachel, albeit a little later in her still young career. After starring in numerous films such as "Bully" and "The Black Dahlia," she started to set her sights more on the realm of television roles. This paid off in a big way with memorable recurring roles on shows including "Californication" and "Supernatural." Especially when it came to the latter, not only was she given a role that really made her stand out from the crowd, but also earned her a loyal fan following which continues to see her career thrive on both the big and small screen.
