Vanessa Morgan (born March 23, 1992), is a Canadian actress and singer, best known for her role as Sarah on the Disney Channel movie and series My Babysitter's a Vampire. She is also notable for playing the young version of Halle Berry's character in Frankie and Alice.


This actress provides examples of:
  • Action Girl: Her role as Sarah on My Babysitters A Vampire.
  • Ambiguously Brown: We know her ethnicity is East African and Scottish, yet like mentioned below she plays a partial Native American on Riverdale and she's mixed race enough to pull it off, even though she doesn't have any of that ancestry.
  • Black Best Friend: Her role as Bird on Finding Carter is a subversion; it would be more accurate to call her a black best frenemy.
  • Advertisement:
  • Creator Backlash: Accused the Riverdale crew of having a problem with showing homosexual content beyond the occasional token kiss after she had numerous scenes cut.
  • Dawson Casting: She played 16 year old Bird on Finding Carter despite being 22 at the time.
  • Fake American: She's originally from Ottawa.
  • Fake Mixed Race: She's rather unbelievably supposed to be at least partially Native American in Riverdale.
  • Sibling Team: With her older sister Celina on the The Amazing Race Canada 1
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Her older sister looks almost identical to her, despite a ten year age gap.
  • Stage Name: Her full name is Vanessa Morgan Mziray.
  • Teens Are Short: At only 5'2'', she will most likely play teen roles for a while.
  • Token Minority: The case in Finding Carter and Guilty at 17.
