Brittany Snow          

Actress, Producer, Director, Singer & Co-Founder of Love Is Louder

Brittany Snow is an actress, model and singer best known for John Tucker Must Die and the Pitch Perfect movies. She began her career at a young age and began modeling for print ads by the time she was just three years old. Though her mom continued to work, her dad, John, quit his job in the insurance industry to operate as her full-time manager, hiring an agent for his daughter in 1998. Within a week, the agent sent over a script for Guiding Light (CBS, 1952-2009) and offered her an audition.

The exposure she received from playing the vindictive tyke on Guiding Light earned her a starring role in American Dreams, a period drama set in the 1960s and seen through the eyes of Snow's character, Meg, a 15-year-old who dreams of being on "American Bandstand."

In 2005, Snow landed a recurring guest spot playing a teenage neo-Nazi on Nip/Tuck and was also cast in her first feature, The Pacifier, starring a neutered Vin Diesel as a Navy SEAL who tries to redeem himself by taking care of the children of a scientist whom he failed to protect. In 2006, Snow's film career got a big boost with a starring role in the teen comedy John Tucker Must Die, followed by Hairspray, Prom Night, Finding Amanda, and The Vicious Kind. She then took on her most popular role in the Pitch Perfect series starting in 2012.

Recognized for her acting, singing and dancing, Snow became a teen household name. But in an October 2007 issue of People magazine, she came forward to admit that teen stardom was not all it was cracked up to be, and that she battled eating disorders, depression, and self-mutilation as early as her Guiding Light days. Having received professional counseling, the actress felt confident about moving into the future.

Snow is the co-creator of the Love is Louder movement, a project dedicated to stop bullying in schools. Thousands of individuals, campuses, and communities have used Love is Louder's programs, events and clubs to address issues such as bullying, body image, discrimination, and depression. Snow was recognized by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration in 2015 with a Special Recognition Voice Award for her efforts to bring attention to mental health issues.
