Good claimed that her maternal grandmother is “Jewish and African. My mother’s father was Cherokee and something else.
My dad’s mother’s Puerto Rican and black, and his father was from Barbados.” Good was raised with her three siblings in Canyon Country (now known as Santa Clarita), California. She began her acting career around the age of four.
According to Good, she grew up “super nerdy, super skinny, buckteeth, big ole afro and yet I had a sense of confidence about myself, like, ‘they just don’t get it yet'”. She was a fan of Justin Timberlake and Usher in her teens. Good did not have any role models until early adulthood, when she began admiring actress Charlize Theron.
In 2011, Good featured in an ensemble cast of the successful film version of Think Like a Man. She played Joanna Locasto, the lead character on the NBC drama series Deception. She starred in the 2013 comedy Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues as well as starring in the horror films Venom (2005), One Missed Call(2008), Saw V (2008), The Unborn (2009) and DC Comics’ Shazam! (2019).
