Life and career[edit]

Staples was born December 1, 1987 in Portland, Maine. At the age of 14, found her passion for music and theater, performing throughout Maine in community and professional productions. In 2006, a week before graduating high school, she was crowned Miss Maine 2006. She then went on to compete in the Miss America 2007 pageant which gave her the chance to earn a scholarship for college and to perform her talent on a national level. Through the connections she made during her year of service, she ended up in New York City. Less than three months after arriving there, she booked a principal role in the 2009 feature film Red Hook and was cast in the original musical, Hear Our Song.

In 2010, she landed a guest role on 90210 and provided the English dubbing in the video game The 3rd Birthday. In 2011, she landed her first starring role in the Canadian TV sitcom What's Up Warthogs! portraying the character of Victoria Jagger.
