Mercedes Alicia McNab (born March 14, 1980) is a Canadian-born actress perhaps best known for playing Harmony Kendall on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and its spinoff Angel. She is also well known for her role as Amanda Buckman in the Addams Family films and as Misty in the horror films Hatchet and Hatchet 2.
McNab received her first notable acting role in 1991 when she appeared as a girl scout selling cookies in Addams Family, TheThe Addams Family. She then received a more prominent role in the 1993 sequel Addams Family Values in which she portrayed a snobby camper named Amanda Buckman.
McNab's next breakthrough came in 1997, when she was cast in a recurring role on the TV show Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The show aired on The WB and also starred Sarah Michelle Gellar and Alyson Hannigan. McNab played Harmony Kendall a vapid, yet popular high school student who eventually becomes a vampire. She appeared in 16 episodes over 4 years. McNab reprised this role when she was cast in the spin-off Angel, which starred David Boreanaz. She became a series regular during the show's final season, airing from 2003-2004.
In 2007, she appeared as a lead role in the horror-slasher movie Hatchet, directed by Adam Green. She later briefly appeared in the 2010 sequel Hatchet 2, and has since starred in a number of Direct-to-DVD horror movies such as Dark Reel and Thirst, as well as the TV movie Vipers alongside Tara Reid. Due to her many roles in the horror genre, McNab is considered a modern day Scream Queen.
