Lacey Nicole Chabert (//; born September 30, 1982) is an American actress. One of her first roles was playing Erica Kane's daughter on All My Children. She was the third actress to play Bianca Montgomery, playing the part from 1992 until 1993. She then gained prominence as a child actress on television for her role as Claudia Salinger in the television drama Party of Five (1994–2000).
She provided the voice of Eliza Thornberry in the animated series The Wild Thornberrys (1998–2004) and two feature films. She was also the voice of Meg Griffin during the first season of the animated sitcom Family Guy, and superheroine Zatanna Zatara in various pieces of DC Comics-related media. In film, she has appeared in Lost in Space (1998), Not Another Teen Movie (2001), and Daddy Day Care (2003), and had leading roles as Gretchen Wieners in Mean Girls (2004), Meg Cummings in Dirty Deeds (2005), and Dana Mathis in the horror remake Black Christmas (2006).
Chabert was born in Purvis, Mississippi. Her father is Cajun. She was "World's Baby Petite" in the "World's Our Little Miss Scholarship Competition" in 1985. In 1992 and 1993, she played young Cosette in the Broadway production of Les Misérables.
Chabert played the role of Cosette in Les Misérables on Broadway before taking the role of Claudia Salinger in Party of Five. Chabert made her big-screen debut in the late 1990s, starring as Penny Robinson in the space thriller Lost in Space (1998). Since then, she has been the voice of Eliza Thornberry in the animated series The Wild Thornberrys, and has voiced Eliza in two films, The Wild Thornberrys Movie (2002) and Rugrats Go Wild (2003). She then had a supporting role in the parody film Not Another Teen Movie as Amanda Becker. She provided the voice for the title character's daughter Aleu in Balto 2: Wolf Quest (2002) and she provided the voice of Meg Griffin, unbilled, for the first season of the animated sitcom Family Guy (1999), after which Mila Kunis took over the role when she became too busy with schooling and her other work.
Chabert played the title role in The Brooke Ellison Story, a movie produced and directed by Christopher Reeve, based upon a real-life quadriplegic woman who overcame many obstacles to graduate from Harvard University. She co-starred in Mean Girls (2004) and the television film Hello Sister, Goodbye Life (2006) on ABC Family. She appeared in a 2006 remake of Black Christmas. She appeared in an episode of Ghost Whisperer opposite former Party of Five costar Jennifer Love Hewitt. She performed the voice of Princess Elise from the game Sonic the Hedgehog for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. She also voiced Gwen Stacy in the animated series The Spectacular Spider-Man.
Chabert, along with Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams, and Amanda Seyfried, won the 2005 MTV Movie Award for Best On-Screen Team for Mean Girls. She won both the 1997 and 1998 The Hollywood Reporter Annual YoungStar Award for Best Performance by a Young Actress in a Drama TV Series for Party of Five, and had been nominated three other times for work from 1999 to 2000. The YoungStar awards honor the best film, TV, and music performances made exclusively by six- to 18-year-olds.
From 2013–2014, Chabert had a recurring role on the ABC Family sitcom Baby Daddy as Dr. Amy Shaw. After working in various TV movies during this time, she opened 2018 with an original Hallmark movie that premiered as part of the Valentine's Day Countdown.
In the media
Appearing in over 18 Hallmark Channel movies, Chabert has been referred to as the 'Queen of Hallmark Christmas Movies' by The New York Post and other media sources. Hallmark Channel has called Chabert "one of the best young actresses of her generation" going on to say that her "resume is as extensive as it is versatile". Chabert stated in an E! interview that "One of the things I love about [working with Hallmark] is you’re guaranteed a happy ending ... I think in the world we’re living in today, to be a part of a project that adds a little love and light and levity into the world is something I’m very proud of." Dr. Phil McGraw has stated that he has seen all of Chabert's Hallmark Christmas Movies.
