Early life[edit]

Tom was born in Hinsdale, Illinois, to Charles and Marie Tom. She has a twin brother, David Tom, best known for his role as Billy Abbott on The Young and the Restless, and an older sister, Heather Tom, who is best known for her role as Victoria Newman McNeil Howard on The Young and the Restless, and Katie Logan Spencer on The Bold and The Beautiful.


In 1992, Tom played the small role of Scott Scanlon's sister, Sue, on Beverly Hills, 90210. In 1992 and 1993, she played Ryce Newton in the successful family movies Beethoven and Beethoven's 2nd. She did not appear in the subsequent sequels, as she had grown out of her specific role, although she did reprise her role as the voice of Ryce in the cartoon spinoff.

From 1993 to 1999, she played the role of Mr. Sheffield's eldest daughter, Maggie Sheffield in The Nanny. This is Tom's best known work as an actress.

From 1998 to 2006, she provided the voice for Supergirl in the DC Animated Universe.

In 2000, she played Sarah Bryan in the Fox Family television film, Ice Angel, and played Tracy in Panic. In 2001, she portrayed a teen reporter, Cassie, in The Princess Diaries.

In 2006, she co-starred in the Independent Film Channel (IFC) original The Minor Accomplishments of Jackie Woodman as Tara, an underling at a film production company. Tom played a small role in "Loose Ends", the September 20, 2007 episode of Burn Notice.[1]

In March 2008, she starred in the Lifetime movie, Her Only Child, that premiered on March 22, 2008. She guest-starred alongside brother David, who played her character's brother in "Damaged", the April 2, 2008 episode of Criminal Minds. She guest-starred on the May 4, 2008 episode of Cold Case.
