Darcy Donavan is an American born film and television actress, recording artist, author, model, entrepreneur and philanthropist with a German, Italian and Brazilian ancestry. Born in Miami, Florida and raised in Nashville, Tennessee, Darcy began her career in the entertainment industry as a child actor and starred in a number of national television commercials at a very young age. Darcy started performing in children's hospitals and raising money for charities in her hometown. She later competed in talent and beauty competitions, winning the title of Ms. Nashville, Tennessee.
Darcy has appeared in roles for hit movies and television shows including, " Modern Family", "Parks and Recreation", "Anchorman", "My Babysitter's a Vampire", "Bones", "Six Feet Under", "Entourage", "Cult", "All My Children", "My Name is Earl", "Las Vegas" and "Nip/Tuck". Acting in film and television is only a couple of Darcy's passions. A now platinum selling recording artist, Darcy's release of her first album had catapulted her singing career and enabled her to tour with well-known artists across the nation. Gaining worldwide recognition with a number of tracks off of her second album "Distraction," Darcy accumulated over twenty-million online streams, which helped her songs reach number one in ringtone downloads across North America. Using a hybrid mix of hip-hop/pop influenced rap lyrics and silky, sultry vocals with pop club mixes, Darcy has no trouble getting listeners up out of their seats and ready to dance. In November 2017, Darcy dropped the remix to her single, "It's My Life," which charted in the top 100 Dance Billboard Charts in four countries.
While Darcy keeps busy with her film, television and music career, she also dedicates much of her time to supporting a number of different charities that are important to her. Through her influential philanthropic work, she is able to both educate others and support charity organizations such as “The Wildlife Waystation", a sanctuary for exotic animals and test subject animals that have no where else to go and “Protect.org”, a national pro-child, anti-crime membership association that works to protect children from physical, sexual, and emotional abuse, and the “Valley View Vaulters”, a horse rehabilitation center that also works with severely handicapped children teaching them how to vault on horseback, and perform in front of cheering audiences.
Darcy is an anomaly whose combination of talent, tenacity, humor and beauty has given her a level of success that has come from her years of hard work. In 2013, Darcy was named a World Peace Ambassador and was featured in and on the front cover of the book "Dream Reachers" alongside entertainers such as Clint Eastwood and Jane Russell.
Darcy has dedicated her life to inspiring others through her charity work and through her huge social media presence, sending words of inspiration to her millions of loyal fans daily. Darcy is the definition of a "guy's girl", with her passion for helping others and her humility, candid honesty, timely wit and humor has been the foundation for her work, both on camera and in music. In addition to being a multi-talented performer, Darcy is a savvy entrepreneur, social media influencer, writer and producer. She released her highly anticipated inspirational book "Darcy's Daily Dose of Inspiration" in November of 2018 and is currently working on her spiritual autobiography that major studio producers are looking to make into a feature film. In between filming a new action/drama to be released next fall, she is also busy recording her new album.
