Though her career started on the stage, American-born actress MacKenzie Meehan made a gradual transition to the screen. Today, she has accumulated quite an admirable number of onscreen credits on both the big and the small screens. Her best-known roles to date were recorded on the sets of The Wolf of Wall Street, These Hopeless Savages, and Couch Hoppers. The up-and-coming star is quite a hard worker and has swept a few awards and nominations on the way.

MacKenzie Meehan is a child of the ’80s

Born in Denver, Colorado USA, actress MacKenzie Meehan has her date of birth captured as the 13th of December 1983. Being born in the United States points to her American nationality but the entertainer is of mixed ethnicity of English, Irish, German, Scottish, and Swiss German. Meehan’s great-grandparents immigrated into the Irish territory from County Cavan.

To date, the Bull reality star has not revealed the identity of her parents as she is known to be stingy with information on her family background. As a result, it is difficult to say whether she is an only child or shared her childhood with some siblings.

Growing up in Denver, Colorado, she completed her high school education there and upon graduation, the blossoming star proceeded to the California State University in Long Beach, where she studied for a Bachelor’s degree. Her academic pursuit didn’t stop at a first degree as Meehan still went ahead to New York University to obtain an MFA in acting.

She is part of the Bull television series

The television actress joined the ensemble of the Bull on CBS in the wake of actress Annabelle Attanasio’s departure. The up-and-coming star came into the hit TV drama series, playing the role of Taylor Rentzel and has since done the reprisal. The role of Taylor is a recurring one and Meehan appears to be having a swell time with the other cast members as the character of Rentzel integrates into the action.

She is obviously forging a strong bond with others and going by what the actress revealed in an interview session, they give support to one another during rough times and talk openly about their personal lives outside the set of Bull. Going further, MacKenzie Meehan narrated how they would frequently have so much fun and end up in laughing fits. Whenever this happens, they will just have to “cut” and try pulling it together. She describes her colleagues on set as a “dream cast and crew”.

MacKenzie Meehan built a reputation on the stage

MacKenzie’s promising screen career notwithstanding, the Colorado-born actress knows her way around the stage. In theatre productions, she is known as a leading actress among her contemporaries with credits on both Broadway and Off-Broadway. On Broadway, she is known for appearing in War Horse, staged at the Lincoln Center Theater. For Off-Broadway, Meehan is credited with productions like Where We’re Born, Pass the Blutwurst, Double Falsehood, Bitte, Point of Departure, and The Sacrifices.

The actress is involved in regional theater performances some of her credits include The Second Girl (The Huntington Theatre), Period of Adjustment (the San Francisco Playhouse), Circle Mirror Transformation ( Studio Theatre), Out Of Orbit (Sundance Theatre Lab), Caviar on Credit (the Guthrie Theater), and Jester’s Dead (The Peoples Improv Theater).

Her movie and TV portfolio is fast increasing

In the world of movies and television, MacKenzie Meehan is relatively new, having spent a greater part of her early acting days on the stage. However, she was quick to boost her onscreen portfolio as soon as she appeared in the movies for the first time. Debuting in 2013, Meehan graced the screen in The Wolf of Wall Street. Before the year ran out, she was seen as part of the cast of The Fold, breathing life into the character of Dell. The emerging movie star played Nicki in the 2014 movie, These Hopeless Savages. She portrayed Nurse Fuller in My All American and essayed the role of Lorie in A Stand Up Guy (2016).

While her television credits are still growing, Meehan was seen in Candlesticks as Hannah Miller. In 2011, she gave expression to Mac in Couch Hoppers, and the same year, the TV series, White Collar featured her as an Event Attendant, and also in 2011, Meehan appeared in Mildred Pierce as a Cashier. 2016 was when she acted as Penny in Vinyl. Meehan breathed life into the role of Taylor Rentzel in Bull (this commenced in 2018 and is still ongoing) and was seen as Rita McKee in the 2019 Adult Ed.

The entertainer’s stage performance in World Becomes Flesh earned her the Helen Hayes Award in 2016.
