Merritt Patterson Bio, Age
Merritt was born on September 2, 1990, in Whistler, British Columbia, Canada. Details of her childhood early life are not known and also, her educational background remains concealed from the public as she has not chosen to share those facts.
However, from the little we were able to glean, her interest in the showbiz started from an early stage in her life. When she was only 11, she began taking part in dance competitions and theatrical productions and continued through high school. She got her first job at the commercial for UNO at the age of 15. Merritt has also appeared in a TV commercial for the Roger Touch Phones.
During the 2006 Canadian Herbal Essences Teen Model Search, she won against 10,000 competitors. Her lack of the ideal height for models would keep her from modelling as she had a difficult time finding a good representation in that career path. Not being able to get a headway in modelling did not deter her from pursuing her other passion which is acting. She thought to appear on the silver screen was the next best thing and she took it headlong.
Merritt was based in Vancouver before she moved to Los Angeles, California where she currently resides.
