Who is Minnie Mills?
British-American actress and model of Korean descent Minnie Mills was born under the zodiac sign Aquarius on 22 January 2002, in London, England. She has only a single acting credit, portraying Shayla in seven episodes of the popular 2022 romantic series “The Summer I Turned Pretty”, which starred Gavin Casalegno, Christopher Briney and Lola Tung, and created by Jenny Han. It follows a love triangle between two brothers and one girl, and the series won a 2023 ReFrame Stamp.
Minnie’s currently shooting for the upcoming action comedy series “Obliterated”, which is set to premiere on 30 November 2023; it follows an elite Special Forces team as they’re hunting down members of a terrorist organization.
Education and early life
Minnie was raised in New York City alongside her younger sister Emma, by their mother and father about whom Minnie’s yet to speak in public because she respects their privacy; it’s believed that her father’s a businessman and her mother a talent agent, but this hasn’t been confirmed.
Minnie was nine when she and her family relocated from London to New York City, but it remains unknown when she received American citizenship. She was either 10 or 11 when she signed her first modelling contract with the agency Wilhelmina Kids, for the following seven years; some of the brands for which Minnie posed during that time were Tommy Hilfiger, Nike and H&M.
She still dreamed about becoming an actress rather than a model, and the summer of 2016 saw her hone her skills at the Atlantic Theatre Company; in the summer of 2018, she practiced at The American Academy of Dramatic Arts, and since 2019 Minnie’s been studying at GoodCapp Arts.

Minnie prefers to use her Facebook account only to chat with her friends and family members, and usually doesn’t allow her fans to befriend her on this network; she uploads similar content onto Facebook as onto her Instagram account.
Love life and boyfriend
Minnie’s yet to speak about her love life in public but some of her fans believe that she’s today in a relationship with American actor Sean Kaufman, whom she met on the set of the series “The Summer I Turned Pretty”.
