Ciara Quinn Bravo (born March 18, 1997) is an American actress and voice actress. She is best known for her role as Katie Knight on Big Time Rush.
Bravo's work as a voice actress includes Giselita in the Open Season universe, Patty in Happiness Is a Warm Blanket, Charlie Brown, and Sarah in Special Agent Oso.
Bravo was born in Alexandria, Kentucky, fifteen miles south of Cincinnati, Ohio. Her career began at the age of 9 years old, after attending the Mike Beaty Model and the Talent Expo in Dallas, Texas. Here, she was discovered by Bryan Leder and Frederick Levy of Management 101. This led to several voice overs for Playhouse Disney and Can You Teach My Alligator Manners?, an appearance in the Willow Smith music video "Knees and Elbows" and several commercials.
During 2008, she continued pursuing auditions and acted in several local commercials for Newport Aquarium and made a short appearance as an Italian girl in the hit film Angels & Demons.
Following on from these initial small successes, a much bigger success was landed in 2009. Having acted in two short films, Lost Sheep (A.K.A. The Cafeteria) and Washed Up, her single audition tape proved enough to earn a 3-year contract with Nickelodeon for a part in the television series, Big Time Rush. Bravo is also a voice actress; she has provided the voice of Giselita in the Open Season franchise. She has also done voice work in Happiness Is a Warm Blanket, Charlie Brown, Special Agent Oso, and The Penguins of Madagascar.
