Darcy Rose Byrnes is an American and Irish performer. She is best known for playing Abby in The Young & the Restless and Bold & the Beautiful, Penny in Desperate Housewives and the speaking and singing voice of Princess Amber in Sofia the First and Elena of Avalor. She is currently the speaking and singing voice of Maricela on Dreamworks' new Netflix series Spirit: Riding Free. She is a prolific writer who's written over 100 songs (She says her current number is almost up to 130 finished and in the 170s unfinished) and is currently working on her first album. She loves learning languages, she is most fluent (besides English) in ASL (American Sign Language). Other unnecessary trivia: She has overrun our home with musical instruments, she spontaneously bursts into operatic versions of whatever song is stuck in her head at the time (i.e. Carry on Wayward Son as done by Maria Callas) or any song as sung by the wrong artist (i.e. Time after Time as done by Cher), she swings around the dance floor like an angel and then literally falls standing still if she's not singing a song in her head (it's called Dancer's syndrome) and if you ask her what she wants ("Going to the store, want anything?") Her answer is always a "Pony". Although she recently upgraded it to "Unicorn".
Nathalie Holmes is an actress, comedian, writer, and vocalist based in Los Angeles, California.
You may have seen her in films such as Mr. Roosevelt, Social Animals, or Maude, which premiered at Sundance. Nathalie can also be seen hosting red carpet premieres for the SXSW Film Festivals live coverage.
