Miranda Wilson was born in Omaha, Nebraska, USA. Her given name was Cheryl Ann, which she changed to Miranda, in her late twenties. Today she uses Miranda Cheryl-Ann Wilson on Facebook, and MirandaCAWilson on Instagram and Twitter, given the rise in popularity of the name Miranda in the USA, since the early 1990's. In 2014 Miranda returned to her career, after an extended absence raising her children. Several award winning short films, feature films, and a recurring role on the new Showtime series Halo (2022) have relaunched her career, and Miranda is now back on the screen and stage, full time.
