Early Life and Education

Michaela was born to an accountant mother and a contractor father, while she also has an older sister, who she claims to be one of her biggest inspirations to date. As for her early education, she attended Parkland High School in her hometown, and having matriculated went on to study at NYU Tisch School of Fine Arts in New York City, from where she graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Theater. Concerning the passion that would later become her profession, she started acting as early as the age of six, mostly in school plays, and apparently having performed brilliantly more than a few times, she became a community-wide actress, which helped her land a number of small roles in commercials that were filmed in the vicinity.


Before landing any contracts and finishing her education, Michaela was already recognized in the acting world for her performances in the famous American play entitled “The Crucible”, as well as in the popular musical “Bye Bye Birdie”. Having graduated, she was chosen as a participant in the documentary film entitled “The It Factor”, which delved into the lives of young actors living in New York City. Even though Michaela had no significant film experience behind her at this point, her earlier recognition was enough to earn her a place in this feature. She later moved to Los Angeles, California USA, where she managed to land her first important role in ABC’s drama series entitled “MDs”, next to William Fichtner and John Hannah. Her next role followed right up, as she got to portray a political consultant in another ABC drama  -“The D.A.”. Michaela had a few other roles in films and series, but her most significant was definitely as Angela Montenegro in the hit TV series by Fox entitled “Bones”, a 12-season show that aired from 2005 to 2017.

Personal Life

According to Michaela herself, she enjoys a few specific activities in her time off-set. First and foremost, she maintains a very close relationship with the aforementioned sister that serves as a huge inspiration in her life. She mostly enjoys traveling around the world and tasting various kinds of foods with her sister, while she also enjoys writing short stories, going to the cinema and reading. She is also best friends with Emily Deschanel, who portrayed Dr. Temperance ‘Bones’ Brennan in “Bones”, her character’s best friend in the show.

Awards and Nominations

Thanks to the praise she enjoyed for her numerous performances ever since she started acting, up to present day, she was eventually nominated for an award in 2008. Her nomination for the Asian Excellence Award in the Supporting Television Actress category for her performance on “Bones” went by without reward, but it contributed to her fame nonetheless.

The Father

Even though world-famous Billy Gibbons is not the biological father of Michaela Conlin, he does star as the father of Angela Montenegro on “Bones”. In the public eye, he is in a way seen as a father figure of the young actress, which in turn contributes to her reputation. From 1967 to present day, William Frederick Gibbons has remained one of the most popular of ZZ Top’s members, having also been placed as 32nd on the “Rolling Stone” list of the world’s 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.

Love Life

Similar to how she found her best friend, Michaela engaged to T.J. Thyne, who portrays Dr. Jack Hodgins in “Bones”, who is her husband in the series. The engagement took place in 2007, and even though the two produced a child called Michale Vincent, born in May 2011, they separated in the same year. In 2012, a rumor surfaced regarding Michaela’s love life, stating that she might be dating the Irish soccer celebrity Arner Gunnlaugsson, who she was seen with multiple times in public, but Angela never made any reference to the said star. At the moment, there is no information regarding any relationship, if she has one.

What Is Michaela Conlin’s Net Worth?

Have you ever wondered how rich Michaela Conlin is, as of early 2018? According to various reputable sources, it has been estimated that the current total of Michaela’s accumulated wealth is around $4 million, bolstered largely by the numerous roles she has landed throughout her acting career, while the screen time she made on “Bones” is likely the greatest contributor to her wealth.

Regarding the three numbers of her bodily ratio, the values are 34-24-34. She is a brown-eyed brunette with a slim build.

1I sample a little bit of everything - a bit of 'House,' a little bit of 'Prison Break.' I love 'Project Runway;' it's my favorite show!
2Pilot season in L.A. is just this blood bath. They make so many pilots, and such a small percentage are picked up. And then if you are picked up, there are so many variables. You have to get a good time slot, and you have to get promoted. And then you have to thrive in that time slot.
3I never used to get homesick when I first moved to L.A.
4Hart Hanson is one of the coolest, smartest producers I've ever worked for. He's very open to ideas, he says no when he should, he says yes when it would work for the show.
5I was trained on stage at NYU in New York City; I did a lot of theatre then.
