Like many other actors, Tangi Miller began her work in high school productions. Upon graduation, she decided to major in marketing at Alabama State University. Spending all of her free time in school on theater productions, Miller altered her plans, and focused on pursuing a career in the performing arts. She made her professional stage debut with the Alabama Shakespeare Festival before enrolling as a graduate student at the University of California at Irvine. The Florida native had the unusual opportunity to perform in West Africa, Cameroon and Ghana as a dancer and an actress, even being featured on "Grey Hairs", a program broadcast on Ghanian television. Back in the USA, Miller has appeared in the guest cast of the HBO series "Arli$$" and CBS' courtroom drama "Michael Hayes". Dark-haired and luminous, Miller made her starring debut as a regular in the college drama "Felicity" (The WB, 1998-2002), playing headstrong student Elena Tyler.
