Born and raised in Los Angeles, CA, Tiffany Michelle began performing in theatre at the age of ten. By age 12 she was starring in her first musical and received back-to-back nominations for Best Young Performer by the Lancaster Performing Arts Center.
During adolescence Tiffany found herself on a variety of stages - in theatrical productions, competing in pageants, traveling with improv/sketch comedy troops, and she won awards nationally as a Speech & Debate competitor (in high school and college) for her original work in the Dramatic Interpretation and Prose Interpretation categories.
In college she set out to double major in Film & Television and Theatre, studying at College of the Canyons, then with professors from UCLA’s Film & Television Department. She eventually found a home at Aaron Speiser's acting conservatory, where she continued her acting tutelage.
When Tiffany transitioned from acting on stage to working in Film/TV she landed small roles in a variety of episodics and feature films, including American Dreams, E.R., Firefly, Nip/Tuck, Daredevil, and Daddy Daycare, as well as nabbing the starring role in the award winning independent film, Carrie’s Choice – based on a true story.
After a sabbatical from acting (due to the success and demands of her poker career) she returned to the stage and screen in 2012. She played the lead role of Irene Adler in Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure (at the Repertory East Playhouse), guest-starred on Days of Our Lives, and she wrote, produced and starred in the short film Breaking Up & Away.
In 2014 Tiffany joined the season 4 cast of the wildly popular online soap opear series DeVanity, as a series regular, playing the resident villainess Scarlett Kane-DeVanity (daughter of DALLAS star Steve Kanaly) . The show was nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award that year for New Approaches: Best Drama Series. She also made a cameo in the 2015 horror film, Director’s Cut.
