Early Life and Career Beginnings
Born in Tampa, Florida in 1986, Brittany Snow expressed an interest in performing from an early age. She landed her first gig at just 3 years old, appearing in a TV commercial!
Snow‘s talent was evident and she continued scoring small acting roles as a child. Her big break came in 1996 at age 10 when she won the part of troubled teen Susan "Daisy" Lemay on the CBS soap opera Guiding Light. Snow portrayed Daisy on a recurring basis for 3 years and won 3 Young Artist Awards for her performance, showcasing her acting skills.
While still acting on Guiding Light, Snow expanded into film projects like 1999‘s The Runner with Richard Gere. She also appeared in movies such as The Pacifier alongside Vin Diesel.
Rise to Fame on American Dreams
In 2002, 16-year-old Snow was cast as Meg Pryor, the lead on NBC‘s drama American Dreams about a 1960‘s family. As a dedicated fan, I loved watching Snow showcase her acting range and musical talents playing a girl coming of age amid historical events.
Over the show‘s 4 season run, Snow recorded period songs and earned award nominations for her breakout role. She looked perfectly retro with her ‘60s hairstyles and wardrobe!
Scene-Stealing Film Performances
Snow brilliantly balanced her American Dreams TV role with movie projects. In 2006‘s John Tucker Must Die, she stole scenes as one of the witty students plotting revenge on Jesse Metcalfe‘s title two-timing jerk.
And who could forget Snow‘s portrayal of mean girl Amber in the 2007 musical phenomenon Hairspray? She was the perfect foil to Nikki Blonsky‘s Tracy Turnblad with razor-sharp comedic timing and impressive singing skills.
Becoming a Pitch Perfect Star
Of course, Snow‘s most defining film role came in 2012 when she was cast as the bubbly Chloe Beale in Pitch Perfect. I loved watching her lead the Barden Bellas with Anna Kendrick and perfect harmonies in creative a cappella covers.
The Pitch Perfect trilogy became Snow‘s biggest box office success. Her character‘s friendship with Kendrick‘s Beca was a highlight and I hope we haven‘t seen the last of Chloe!
