Although she got her big break playing a teen rebel on Guiding Light
, this angelic-looking actress was a good girl off screen. After launching her modeling career at age 3, the native Floridian appeared in regional theater and TV guest spots before signing on to the New York-based soap. In order to maintain a semblance of a normal life, her parents insisted that she keep Tampa as her home base, and from 1998-2001, Snow commuted to the set while keeping her spot on her school's honor roll. In 2002 she charmed prime-time viewers as the lead on the family drama American Dreams
. As a comely blonde dancer coming of age against the tumultuous backdrop of the '60s, she became a teen idol and fashion plate. Although the series was canceled after three seasons, Snow launched a successful big-screen career, appearing in a number of youth-oriented films (John Tucker Must Die
, The Pacifier
, Prom Night
) and the film adaptation of the Broadway musical Hairspray
, while continuing to indulge her dark side as a neo-Nazi high-school student in a scary stint on Nip/Tuck
. Snow decided to return to network TV in 2010 when she signed on to play a lawyer’s assistant in David E. Kelly’s midseason legal drama Harry’s Law
. Offscreen, she is active with the Jed Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to reducing emotional stress and preventing suicide among college students.Brittany Snow Fast Facts:
