Megan Boone is an actress from the US that became famous and known worldwide as an agent called Elizabeth Keen in a drama series titled “The Blacklist” by NBC.
She regularly stars in Law & Order: LA and has been in many movies like My Bloody Valentine. These have been a pretty big deal over the last few years and that’s why everyone knows about her.
She was born on April 29th in 1983 in the city of Petoskey located in Michigan, in the United States. She said that her childhood has been wonderful and that her parents have always been very supportive of what she does.
Her full name is Megan Whitney Boone. Although she was born in Michigan she was raised in Florida, in The Villages to be precise.
It was because her parents moved the whole family to this little retirement community in Florida. They decided that it was best for their kids, so they wanted to give them a better future.
It was because her grandfather Gary Morse founded The Villages and was very old and unable to take care of himself. So the family came to help him out. They wanted to be there for him, especially in these past moments.
He passed away in 2014 and her mother called Jennifer Parr took over the position as a director of sales. This was a big change in the family dynamics, but they wanted to keep going as soon as possible.
She has both German and English roots and even has a bit of Scottish and Dutch ancestry. She wishes she spoke more languages, but she wasn’t really that interested in them when she was growing up and now she says that she doesn’t have the time to learn them.
When she was seven she and her family visited New York to go and see a Broadway play with Nathan Lane in it which completely occupied her and she realized that she wanted to act for a living.
Megan wen to the Belleview High School in Marion County in Florida and graduated in 2001.
Four years later she graduated from Florida State University’s School of Theatre and got herself a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts in acting. She said that this was a very interesting time in her life because she was finally doing what she had been interested in for such a long time.
After that, she continued to educate herself in acting at the Asolo Repertory Theatre in Florida alongside Edwin Sherin and Jane Alexander, both famous in this field of work. She also worked alongside Mark Medoff, a known playwright.
In 2017 Megan started educating herself again, this time at Bard College for an MBA in Sustainability. She said that this was also very interesting and that she found that she was very in love with a lot of fields in science s well.
Megan often thanks Jane Alexander for her support because Boone often thought about quitting her acting career.
Before her career started going up she had several jobs: from waiting tables in a restaurant, working at the furniture warehouse, greeted people in a beauty salon and worked as a cashier.
But she always knew that she was going to succeed in her dreams because of her persistence. And she was not ashamed of her work.
In 2001 she had a small role of Abigail in a short movie called “Elijah”. This movie didn’t do too well and her role wasn’t really noticeable, so she didn’t have a big opportunity to breakthrough.
In 2007 Megan made her debut in Los Angeles in a play titled Limonade Tous Les Jours. She won two LA Weekly Theather Awards for this role.
In 2008, she made an appearance in a TV series called The Cleaner. The series ran until the fall of 2009 when it was canceled.
The same year she appeared in a TV series Cold Case in the episode named Wings.
She gained a role in The Mustachioed Bandit Meets His End the same year. She said that this was very interesting for her and she was looking forward to meeting a lot of new people as well.
The first movie Boone was in was a horror movie called “My Bloody Valentine 3D”. It was directed by Patrick Lussier and in it, she played the role of a girl called Megan.She starred alongside Jensen Ackles, Jamie King, Kerr Smith and many more. This was in 2009.
The movie was made in a slasher genre and was kind of a remake of a similar Canadian movie. It was released through Lionsgate and it turned out to be a hit. It was made with a small budget of $14 million and has earned over $100 million.
In 2010 she got a role in a romantic comedy called “Sex and the City 2” where she played Allie.
Although the movie was a success at the box office, it has also been awarded a lot of Golden Raspberry Awards in the categories of Worst Actress, Worst Sequel, Worst Picture, Worst Director and more.
She also starred in The Myth of the American Sleepover directed by David Robert. It was a low-budget movie that earned a little over $40 k. It was an interesting project, she claims but was never destined to make great things.
Throughout 2010 she starred as Lauren Stanton, a Junior Deputy District Attorney in “Law & Order: LA”. She appeared in seven episodes and was very intrigued by the series.
Megan also appeared in a TV movie named Harvard Medical School: White Coat with the role of Nell Larson.
In 2010 Megan directed her fist ever movie and it was an independent film titled “Eggshells for Soil” which was partially shot in The Villages in Florida.
She acted in it but also helped write and produce the movie. She soon found out that she was good at this as well and she wanted to try it out more often later on, but she didn’t have the time while pursuing her acting career, so she saved that for later when she settles a bit with her family.
In 2012 she starred in a dance film “Step Up Revolution” also known as “Step Up 4: Miami Heat”. It is a fourth film of the Step Up series and she played Claire, a single mother in it.
She received good critics for her role and the movie turned out to be a hit at the box office earning over $140 million and was budgeted with $30 million.
Her first movie in 2012 was a drama movie called About Cherry, the first work of the director Stephen Elliot. The film had its premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival in 2012.
The same year she got a role in a movie called “Leave Me Like You Found Me” in which she played Erin.
Shooting this romantic drama movie directed by Adele Romanski was a very fulfilling experience for her. She also had a great time with her lead male co-actor David Nordstrom.
In 2013 she gained a role in a comedy movie called Welcome to the jungle with Jean Claude Van Damme and Adam Brody in the lead roles. She played the character Lisa in the movie.
Throughout 2013 she starred in “Blue Bloods”, a police drama in which she played the role of detective Candice McElroy. She appeared in just two episodes of this popular series.
At the same time, she was on “Blacklist” which was extremely successful. The interesting fact is that Megan was the first actor to be chosen for this series.
Megan began acting in the series in 2013 and is still acting in the role of Elizabeth Keen. She did over one hundred episodes and says that she feels that she could film thousand and still not be bored with the story.
She also appeared in a sketch comedy called Robot Chicken in 2014. It was one of the most unique things she worked on and was very pleased by it.
In 2014 she had been nominated for the People’s Choice Awards. She hasn’t won the award but has gained the Rising Star Award delivered to her by the Savannah College of Art and Design.
When the new season of Blacklist in 2017 started being advertised she started dishing the new posters on Twitter since all the posters had the male character Spider in the front and she was always in the background.
She feels that she needed to promote the female lead exposure because it seems like she is not an as important character as her male colleague.
In the winter of 2015, it was confirmed that Megan is pregnant with her at that time boyfriend Dan Estabrook.
At the beginning of 2016, she appeared on “Live! With Kelly and Michael2 and talked about how she and Dan engaged and that they are expecting a girl.
She was born in April and Megan was 32 at that time. Her daughter’s full name is Caroline Boone Estabrook.
After her child was born she became a lot more aware of the environmental issues there are in the world and she started spreading awareness.
At the beginning of 2017, she launched a foundation called “CarolineAgnes.org Foundation”. This foundation helps to provide parents environmentally safe options for their children.
Megan has an Instagram account with over 300k followers and often posts there, especially to express her opinion about something.
Megan is often Tweeting about important topics such as politics, laws and climate change. She feels that the state doesn’t take care of its citizens the best way she can.
She wants stricter gun laws and was especially sad because of often shootings at schools and public places which took so many lives.
She is also upset by the climate changes and the fact that politicians ignore them and lessen the serious situation the Earth is in.
She is often involved in ecological movements and actions such as planting trees in the Brazilian Rain Forrest.
