Mandy Musgrave was born on 19th September 1986 in Orlando Florida. Being the granddaughter of actress Rita Ray, Mandy always had someone to look up to when it comes to acting. However, although Mandy started acting at age 6, it wasn’t until high school did she actually become passionate about the art. After graduating in 2004, Mandy Musgrave moved to Hollywood to pursue a career in acting.
Musgrave easily got the attention of talent agencies and casting directors. Within a year in Hollywood, she landed a guest role in the hit TV show “Malcolm in the Middle.” However, Mandy’s big break came when she won a role in the longtime-running daytime drama “Days of Our Lives,” where she played the role of Chelsea Benson from 2004 to 2005.
To promote the show, she also appeared on several webisodes for “South of Nowhere”, which are still available for viewing at ‘The N’ website. Mandy’s character became a popular icon among teenagers, so much so that she earned her own fan base and received more opportunities, such as the 2009 film “Duck Farm No. 13.” In 2007, Musgrave won the “Favorite Mobile Dramatic Artist Award.
South of Nowhere” ended on the end of 2008, but Mandy Musgrave remained busy in her artwork website, where she plans to sell her paintings to fans. Musgrave has stated that her paintings come at $500 to $2,500 a piece and she will also be accepting custom orders. Samples of her artwork can be viewed on her official fan site, which include paintings of her father, twin sister and her boyfriend Matt Cohen.
