Felicia Day was born in Huntsville, Alabama and grew up all over the South, part of a military family. She was home-schooled her whole life and started participating in theatrical productions when she was very young as an actor and a dancer. She attended college at the age of 16, and subsequently graduated as Valedictorian of her class, completing degrees in Mathematics and Violin Performance at the University of Texas at Austin. Shortly thereafter she moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in acting, her dream.
As an actress, she has appeared on TV shows such as “House”, “Strong Medicine”, “Monk”, and films such as “Bring it on Again” and the Emmy award-winning “Warm Springs”. She had a recurring role as “Vi” in the last season of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and can be soon seen in a four-episode arc on the new ABC Family sitcom “Roommates”.
Currently, Felicia is most widely known for her work in web video, and co-starred in Joss Whedon’s Internet musical “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-long Blog,” Voted the Best TV of 2008 by Time Magazine, Entertainment Weekly and People Magazine just to name a few. She also can be seen in the web series “The Guild”, which she created, writes and stars in. “The Guild” was the winner of the YouTube, Yahoo and SXSW Best Web Series Awards for 2008 and for the first season alone collected over 11 million hits web-wide. Recently, in a ground-breaking deal, “The Guild” partnered with Xbox to produce and release Season 2 on the Xbox Marketplace as well as other Microsoft distribution platforms.
