Brittany Snow        

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

Brittany Snow is an actress, model, and singer best known for her roles in John Tucker Must Die and the Pitch Perfect series. She initiated her career at an early age, modeling for print advertisements when she was just three years old. Snow's father, John, quit his job in insurance to manage her burgeoning acting career full-time, securing her an agent in 1998 who quickly led her to an audition for "Guiding Light" (CBS, 1952-2009).

The recognition she garnered from her role in "Guiding Light," which landed her a Young Artist Award for Best Young Actress, paved the way for a starring role in "American Dreams," a 1960s period drama. Her portrayal of Meg, a 15-year-old dreaming of appearing on "American Bandstand," earned her a Young Artist Award nomination and three Teen Choice Award nominations. Following her stint on television, Snow made forays into film, making appearances in The Pacifier, John Tucker Must Die, Hairspray, Prom Night, and later in the Pitch Perfect series, among others.

In addition to her acting, Snow is known for her vocal performances and dancing abilities. However, she has spoken openly about the challenges that accompanied her early fame. In an October 2007 issue of People magazine, Snow revealed her struggles with eating disorders, depression, and self-mutilation as early as her "Guiding Light" days. Following professional counseling, she felt confident moving forward and used her experiences to advocate for mental health awareness.

Snow co-founded the Love is Louder movement, a project aimed at combating bullying in schools. This initiative has been implemented by thousands of individuals, campuses, and communities to address issues such as bullying, body image, discrimination, and depression. In 2015, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration recognized Snow with a Special Recognition Voice Award for her endeavors to raise awareness about mental health issues. Moreover, she co-founded the charity September Letters in 2016, further contributing to mental health awareness.

Apart from her acting and activism, Snow has ventured into directing, making her directorial debut with the drama film Parachute. She has also lent her voice to the video games Kingdom Hearts II and Skylanders: SuperChargers. Snow's wide range of talents and accomplishments, combined with her dedication to important social causes, has made her a prominent figure in the industry.
