Christy Carlson Romano

Recommended Posts


Christy Carlson Romano (born Christy Michelle Romano on March 20, 1984) is an American actress and singer. She is perhaps best known for her roles in the sitcom Even Stevens and the animated series Kim Possible, as well as garnering a considerable boost in fandom for providing the voice of Yuffie Kisaragi in Final Fantasy VII Advent Children.

Early life

Romano was born in Milford, Connecticut to Sharon Carlson and Anthony Romano, and attended Orange Ave Elementary School. She has two older sisters and one older brother. Romano moved to Atlanta, Georgia as a child, and landed her first acting job at the Atlanta production of Annie.

While working in Disney, Romano has recorded songs in the soundtracks of some Disney movies and TV series like Kim Possible and Teacher's Pet. The writers of Kim Possible wrote the episode "Blush" based on Christy. She is apparently so extremely modest that she gets embarrassed and will blush at even the slightest compliment/awkward situation. Romano first sang on Disney Channel on a first season episode of Even Stevens (in 2000) which led to more singing on the series and with Disney in general. In 2004, following her stint on Broadway, Romano focused on her recording career full-time. Romano began collaborating with Matthew Gerrard, Andy Marvel, and Martin Briley. Romano has worked with Kara DioGuardi, Stacy Jones (of 'American Hi-Fi'), Shelly Peiken, Richie Sambora, Jaret Reddick (of Bowling for Soup), The Matrix, Diane Warren, Jonnie "MOST" Davis.

In 2004, Walt Disney Records released Christy Carlson Romano: Greatest Disney TV & Film Hits, featuring her new single "Dive In" (which was written by Christian music singer Cindy Morgan). In 2005, Romano was featured in Chris Brown's music video for "Run It". Also in 2005, Romano signed with Atlantic Records for a 2006 debut. However, in 2006, Romano stated in an interview with TV Guide that she was in between labels once again, this time with Virgin Records.

In November 2005, Christy Romano jumped on the 'celebrity MySpace' bandwagon and launched a music account. She has used her account to post many new songs to share with fans, and showcase her own artistic evolution. It is unclear which, if any, of the songs will be on her upcoming album. In November 2006, Romano changed her Record Label status on her official MySpace page from Major to Indie. The reason for this and her new record label were not stated.

She also was in the Cutting Edge 2 Going For The Gold

Was reported on Tommy2.net that she recorded a version of the Click Five's song "Friday Night" for a new moving that shes in called Taking Five which also starrs the Click Five.

Personal life

Romano is a member of the Barnard College class of 2006, majoring in English and international relations. She is a sister of Sigma Delta Tau sorority. Milford Mayor James Richetelli Jr. named February 22, 2005 as Christy Carlson Romano Day, and she received the "Connecticut's Finest Citizen Award". She has interned for Connecticut Senator Christopher Dodd, who is her godfather. In December 2005 she announced her engagement to long time boyfriend Cal Thomas, but in May 2006 she announced she has ended her engagement for unstated reasons. Thomas (born Carlos Alberto Alvarez on September 25, 1980) is a Dominican actor and writer, and should not be confused with the American columnist.

Her next move is to Los Angeles, California, where she will be pursuing a television pilot, movies, and a solo music career.

She has a dog, Chewy, and a cat, Cabrio. Her favorite current TV Series are House, Grey's Anatomy and Entourage.
