Mikaela Banes in "Transformers" (the movie)
Megan Fox was born May 16, 1986 in Oak Ridge, TN. Fox began her training in drama and dance at age five in Kingston, TN; attended a dance class at the community center there and was involved in Kingston Elementary School's chorus and the Kingston Clippers swim team. When she was 13 years old, Fox began modeling after winning several awards at the 1999 American Modeling and Talent Convention in Hilton Head, South Carolina. And at age 17, she tested out of school via correspondence and moved to Los Angeles.
Fox made her acting debut at 15 in the 2001 film "Holiday in the Sun" as spoiled heiress Brianna Wallace and rival of Alex Stewart (Ashley Olsen), which was released direct-to-DVD. In the next several years she guest-starred on "What I Like About You" and "Two and a Half Men," and she was an uncredited extra in "Bad Boys II" (2003). Fox made her film debut in 2004 in "Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen" co-starring opposite Lindsay Lohan. Fox was also cast in a regular role on the ABC sitcom "Hope & Faith" in which she portrayed Sydney Shanowski, replacing Nicole Paggi.
But the role that made her famous was in 2007 when she won the lead female role of Mikaela Banes in the live-action film Transformers. Fox reprised her role as Mikaela Banes in the Transformer sequel, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.
