Angelique Cabral booked her first professional job at the tender age of 6 months old in a United Airlines commercial. She has since worked extensively in national commercials, voiceovers, print modeling and starring in television, film and theater.

Cabral graduated from high school as valedictorian, summa cum laude and was recruited to Indiana University with a prestigious academic Wells Scholarship. While there, she double majored in French and Musical Theater, studied abroad for a semester in London, attending the British American Dramatic Academy, and then lived in Paris for a summer where she attended the Institute of European Studies. After graduation, she moved to New York City in 2001, where she pursued her dream of becoming an actress.
