Michelle Gomez (born 23 November 1966) played Missy (short for Mistress) in series 8, 9 and 10 of Doctor Who. She also voiced Jevvan in the Big Finish Doctor Who audio story Valhalla, and read the short story The Grief Collector for BBC Audio's Time Lord Fairy Tales.
At the age of seven, Michelle saw a production of Kiss Me, Kate and decided that she was going to be an actress. Her parents encouraged this ambition and after she grew up, she attended Shawlands Academy from 1978 to 1983 and trained at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama.
