Who is Catherine Missal?

Born under the sign of Scorpio on the 15th of November 1999, in New Jersey USA, Catherine ‘Cat’ Missal is a Caucasian actress, probably best known to the public for her significant exposure on the TV screen and across other media outlets, from her appearances in various films and TV shows, over the course of her acting career since 2009.

Early life and education: In her sister’s footsteps

Catherine was raised in her place of birth by her father and mother of still unknown names and professions. She has an older sister named Kelley Missal, born in October 1993, who is also an actress; the two famous siblings have an older brother named Steve Missal.

Since Catherine has never got around to divulging information about her early childhood. Regardless, she’s believed to have had a strong passion for performing ever since she was a toddler. As for her education, she attended an unspecified high school in her state of birth , where she often starred in plays, matriculating in 2017. Sources are unable to provide accurate data regarding Catherine’s post-high school education; she is thought to be attending a college, but there is no evidence to support which one.

Career: A star is born

Though Catherine began acting when she was five years old, primarily in the community theater, then also at school, it wasn’t until 2009 that she made her TV screen debut, seen for first time in the short film entitled “Shopping”, in the role of Sophie. She took a two-year break before making her TV series debut as Heather in the “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” episode entitled “Possessed” in 2011, and in the next year she played Emily in the same TV series, in the episode “Friending Emily”.

The year 2013 marked a milestone in her career, at which point she obtained the main role of Lily in “Vijay and I” – her first film. In 2014 she claimed the lead role of Rachel in the sci-fi thriller drama entitled “Movement and Location”, and a year later appeared as Adena in the adventure comedy film entitled “Vacation” – her most famous role so far, and thus a subsequently significant contribution to her net worth. 2016 showed her as Tiffany in “Natural Selection”, and in 2017 she portrayed Young Amy in the pilot episode of the TV series entitled “Doubt”, and in 2018 played Tara Rayburn in “The Blacklist”.

Her most recent appearance has been in 10 episodes of the TV series “Tell Me Lies” in 2022.

Missal off-screen

Besides her appearances in films and TV shows, Catherine also had the honor and pleasure of performing on Broadway, in productions of “A Tale of Two Cities” and “Mary Poppins” – she infrequently stars off-screen, sometimes in the community theater, sometimes on Broadway. In conclusion, she keeps her options open, and doesn’t feel as though acting on a stage instead of in front of the camera is a demotion.

Catherine starring as Catherine

She and her sister both appeared in “The Next Big Thing: NY” – a TV special – in 2012, in which they both gave a singing performance.

Catherine appeared on the screen again as a celebrity two years later, as a guest in the episode of “We Love Soaps TV” entitled “Movement and Location”, after the film she starred in.

Climbing up the ladder

“Movement and Location” is a movie which made a good impression on the public, as evidenced by numerous positive reviews, such as this one by hollywoodreporter.com, praising the location and overall performance. Being part of the team that made this project happen, Catherine enjoys steady recognition for her contribution to the film.

Love life: Does she have a boyfriend?

When it comes to Catherine’s romantic involvements, it doesn’t seem as though she’s been willing to divulge such information to the media. She has never been seen in particular male company, though there was some controversy regarding this part of her life. Catherine’s unofficial fan-made Twitter account posted in 2012 that the name of Missal’s boyfriend at the time was Anthony Back. This allegation was never confirmed by the celebrity, and it was quickly dismissed after not being proved. The fans can’t even suspect anyone on her social media, since she is alone, with a female friend or a family member in every picture she posts.


Does she have any awards?

While most actors are not expected to be recognized at the start of their career, and Catherine has only nine credited roles thus far, it comes as a mild surprise that she’s already been nominated for an award. In 2016 Catherine and her two co-workers (Skyler Gisondo and Steele Stebbins) were nominated for the Young Entertainer Award in the Best Young Ensemble Cast – Feature Film category for their performance in “Vacation”.

Does she have a son?

For some reason, several faulty news sources allege that Catherine may have a son. This is completely untrue, as she probably isn’t even in a relationship, and has never stated that she plans on being the single mother of an adopted child. As far as credible information goes, Catherine is focused on her studies and acting career, without any desire to mother a child at the moment.

Her tiny social media break

As seen in her Twitter post from June 2019, Catherine was absent for a short while from the network, and apologized to her fans for not announcing her absence. According to her statement, she seems quite appreciative of her followers, and dedicated to interacting with them.

What is Catherine Missal’s net worth?

Have you as of mid-2019 considered just how rich Catherine could have become? The stance of the most authoritative sources on this matter suggests that her current wealth is well over $500,000, as of mid-2024, which she’s earned by her appearances and acting expertise over more than a decade in the entertainment business. Seeing as Missal is just getting started with her career, the said amount will surely increase.

Social media presence

Since every new fan potentially means a ticket’s worth into the box office total for every movie she works on, as well as new potential roles thanks to the rise in popularity, Missal needs to tend to her audience carefully, right? Exactly so, and it looks like the star is keeping a close eye on how these numbers fluctuate, committing herself to daily engaging on all three of the most popular social media networks.
