This actress provides examples of:

  • Action Girl:
    • Her role as Sarah on My Babysitter's a Vampire.
    • Her appearance as a contestant on The Amazing Race Canada 1 certainly confirms this.
  • Cast the Runner-Up: Originally auditioned for Josie in Riverdale, and made enough of an impression despite not getting the role to be cast as Toni in Season 2.
  • Creator Backlash: She 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. Morgan actually is mixed race, but not that kind (she's half Tanzanian, half white Scottish).

  • 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.
  • Twofer Token Minority: On Finding Carter and Guilty at 17 she's the cast's girl of color.
