Mackenzie Davis stepped onto the world stage when she got cast in the soft reboot movie Terminator: Dark Fate (2019). However, Davis has enjoyed a colourful acting career since she debuted in 2011. Born in Vancouver, British Columbia, she finished her high school education at Collingwood School before enrolling at McGill University in Montreal. Before she went down the path of acting, she tried her hands a bit at modelling. The demands of the job turned out enormous for her and so she went to the Neighborhood Playhouse in New York City to study acting instead.
