It is a great show that will have you hooked to your screen as you watch the drama unfold. Among the show’s standout acts is Brianna Baker, who takes on the part of Nancy Gillian, a paramedic. Although she takes on a recurring role, she brings her best to the part, and you cannot help but notice her. So, who exactly is Brianna Baker? To answer your question, we bring you ten things you did not know about this actress.
1. Her Early Life And Growing Up

As such, she hardly puts out her personal details, as evident by the lack of information pointing to her date of birth and where she grew up from. When it comes to her family, there are sneak peeks of who she is from her social media pages. On her Instagram handle, she regularly uploads pictures of her family, mostly her sister, who resembles her. According to Better Off Wed, she hints that she grew up in Rantoul, Illinois.
2. Her Ancestry
A look at Brianna’s complexion, and you immediately get a hint that she is of mixed ancestry. She has a caramel hue, which is a slight indication that she is of white and black heritage presumably. While not confirmed at all, you can see her childhood photos on Instagram with her mother, who is white. There is a high possibility that her dad is of African —American ethnicity.
Not much information is available on where Brianna schooled, though it is clear that she attended several Improv and theater schools. It is from these schools that she honed her acting skills to become the pro she is today. Among the theater schools, she has an association with the Groundlings theatre and school, which has been in existence since 1974.
4. Beginning As A Child
Despite her schooling history being in the dark, she opines in several interviews that she got into acting while in fourth grade. That is quite a young age and it only means that she has a ton of experience when it comes to entertainment. She got into her first role in a school play when the teacher in charge was looking for someone who could take on the part of a Native American. Her complexion worked to her advantage, and she played a Native American boy. That was her orientation into acting and she fell in love with it instantly.
