Today is actress Lindsey Morgan’s birthday. And “Walker,” the CW show on which she plays ranger Micki Ramirez, is celebrating it with a tweet.

“The best partner someone could ask for,” the show tweeted Saturday. “Happy Birthday, @linzzmorgan! #Walker.”

Some Fast Facts About Lindsey Morgan

Morgan grew up in Houston, Texas, per IMDb. She got into theatre in high school, acting in school productions of “Little Shop of Horrors” and “Footloose.”

While she was attending college at the University of Texas at Austin, she appeared in commercials and, eventually, the shows “My Generation” and “Friday Night Lights.” So Morgan then moved to Los Angeles, where she landed roles in the movies “Detention” and “DISconnected.”

On television, Morgan has appeared in the soap opera “General Hospital” as well as popular shows like “How I Met Your Mother” and “The 100.” She received a Daytime Emmy nomination for Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series for her role on “General Hospital.”

Moreover, Morgan reportedly has retained four baby teeth that will not fall out. Also, she loves the Barbara Gordon/Batgirl character from DC Comics, who she hopes to play in a movie someday.

‘Walker’ on The CW

“Walker” is a reboot of the TV series “Walker, Texas Ranger,” which ran from 1993 to 2001 on CBS. The reboot stars Jared Padalecki as Cordell Walker. Padalecki also executive produces.

“I love, love, love the show I’m doing now,” Padalecki told Collider earlier this month. More specifically, “I love the character, I love the cast, I love our crew, and I love the stories we are setting out to tell. I hope Cordell Walker feels different than [‘Supernatural’ character] Sam Winchester. I’ve worked really hard to try to make sure that they’re different people.”

Padalecki joked that Morgan is much easier on the eyes than Jensen Ackles, who he teamed up with on his previous show, “Supernatural.” Another bonus: she’s shorter than him.

“With Lindsey, she’s also just a wonderful person,” Padalecki said. “She’s kind, she’s smart, she’s hardworking, she’s talented, she’s very passionate about her character and the role, and she takes it very seriously and does her research and her preparation. I really enjoy working with her.”

Morgan is a “sponge,” he added. And as the show’s Twitter account put it, he couldn’t ask for a better partner.
