Career[edit]

Early career[edit]

She got her start in acting at the age of 5 doing theater productions. She was later discovered and starred regularly in the WB's Nick Freno: Licensed Teacher. Later she had guest spots on Mad About You, 7th Heaven, The West Wing (in "The Stackhouse Filibuster"), Strong Medicine, and ER. She has also starred in several TV movies and had minor roles in several motion pictures such as Sleepless in Seattle and Avalon. She also co-starred in "You're Invited to Mary-Kate and Ashley's Sleepover Party" starring former "Full House" stars Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen.

So Weird[edit]

In her breakout role on So Weird, DeLizia played Fiona "Fi" Phillips, an adolescent girl obsessed with the paranormal. DeLizia left the show in the Season 3 premiere and was replaced by Alexz Johnson. To that point, the show had been "darker" for a Disney show in the vein of The X-Files. However, when DeLizia departed, the show took on a lighter tone for the remainder of its run.

Later work[edit]

Her other major role was as Marcy Kendall on the FOX drama Boston Public where she played the assistant to Chi McBride's Principal Harper.

She voiced Z in "All Grown Up". In 2002 Cara co-starred in "Anna's Dream" alongside former Caitlin's Way star Lindsay Felton.

DeLizia became engaged to Robert Chambers in 2001. The couple married in 2004 and lived in Burbank, California. In 2006, the couple divorced. As of 2012 Cara has retired from acting and voice acting. Cara's father is a consultant.[1]

In December 2009, she married Nick Rich.[2]
