Early life[edit]

Beard was born in Scarborough, Ontario, Canada. Her Suga BayBee was also a character on the Mad Dog and Billie morning show formerly aired on Toronto radio station KISS 92.5.[1][2] Beard's squeaky-voiced character began appearing on KISS when Beard was 19 years old and otherwise working as a sales clerk.[3]

Career[edit]

Her voice in 2000 was most known as the voice Sailor Mini Moon in the Cloverway adaptation of Sailor Moon. From 2001 to 2007, Beard hosted and produced The Zone, a series of short interstitial segments that aired between regular weekday programming on the Canadian children's network YTV. Between 2002 and 2007, the programming block was hosted by both Beard and Carlos Bustamante, another long-time YTV host that was the host of The Zone from 2002-2018. She also hosted additional programs like Sugar & Avril: A Zone Special.[4] She and Bustamante hosted a weekly hour-long program, Plugged In, on the Corus Entertainment website boomboxbaby.ca.[5]

She also had a column in the youth newspaper, Brand New Planet; it was distributed with subscriptions to the Toronto Star only.[6] In 2006, the Star put her on the long list for Children's Entertainment, when creating their Essentially Canadian Top 10 lists.[7]

Among her works, she played the role of Susan in the 2011 film 50/50[8] and the character Fiona in two episodes of season 6 of Weeds. She also played Krissy in the 2012 film For a Good Time, Call..., and Jeanie in the 2016 comedy Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates.
