Early Life and Career
Born on Agust 8, 1981, to Tyra Wardlow-Doyle and Leondis Leon, Good was raised in a home with parents of multiple racial identities. Her maternal grandparents were of Cherokee, black and African descent while her paternal grandparents were Puerto Rican, black, and Barbados. Her parents have four children (a son and three girls) and all four of them grew up together in Canyon Country presently Santa Clarita, Califonia. Her birth sign is Leo and she holds an American nationality.

Interest in Acting
The African-American actress scored a big point in her career in 1997 when she was nominated twice in two respectable award shows which include the NAACP Image Award for her superb portrayal of the Cisely Batiste character in the film Eve’s Bayou.
The fame that came with the film’s success smoothened out the journey to stardom for Meagan, earning the TV queen a steady spot on Nickelodeon’s memorable show Cousin Skeeter which aired from 1998 to 2001. Following that, she played other small roles in movies like House Party 4: Down To Last Minute and 3 Strikes.
Her career took a more mature turn in 2003 with roles that no longer portray her as a child but a grown-up woman such as her role in Deliver Us From Eva and Biker Boyz. Next was an impressive entrance to the third season of ABC TV show My Wife and Kids, Stomp The Yard, and Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.
