Ciara Quinn Bravo (pronounced //; born March 18, 1997) is an American actress. She is best known for her role as Katie Knight on Big Time Rush and her role as Emma Chota on Red Band Society.
Bravo's work as a voice actress includes Giselita in the Open Season universe, Patty in Happiness Is a Warm Blanket, Charlie Brown, Sarah in Special Agent Oso, Meg Murphy in Jinxed and Mellissa Bing in Swindle.
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.
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. She is currently starring as Emma Chota on Red Band Society.
