Born to a Dominican mother and Mexican father, Mishel Prada was raised in Hialeah, Fla. and has been drawn to the performing arts for as long as she can recall. Prada will star as ‘Emma’ in Starz highly anticipated 30-minute drama series “Vida.” Prior to securing her lead role on “Vida,” Prada starred in AMC’s short form series “Fear the Walking Dead: Passage” an online spinoff of the hit series “Fear the Walking Dead”. Her character “Gabi” echoed the same strength and determination to survive that her grandmother did when she immigrated from the Dominican Republic to the United States as a single mother with three children in tow working in a bra factory to support her family and build a new life. The popular series was nominated for a Creative Arts Emmy Award® and Prada made it a point to wear her grandmother’s earrings to the show. In addition to acting, Prada is a founding member of Damarosa, a female art collective founded by Britt Bogan, which seeks to celebrate the significant role of women throughout art, literature, and politics, while also spotlighting a new generation of influential female voices.
