Redhead of the Week Likes to Fiddle

Felicia Day is best known as "Vi" on TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and for parts in movies such as Bring It On Again and June, as well as the Internet musical Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog.

She is also the star, script writer and producer of the originally YouTube-based web series The Guild, which won the Greenlight Award for Best Original Digital Series Production at the South by Southwest festivals, the YouTube Video Award for Best Series, the Yahoo! Video Award for Best Series, and 2009 Streamy Awards for Best Comedy Web Series.

Day's acting career began at the age of 7 when she starred as Scout in a local production of To Kill a Mockingbird. Day has also studied ballet professionally and has performed at concerts and competitions nationwide. She is also an accomplished violinist.

Going straight from home-schooling to college at an early age, Day chose to double major in mathematics and violin performance at the University of Texas at Austin, despite having been accepted to the Juilliard School of Music.

After graduation, Day moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in acting. She landed several roles in various short and independent films, as well as commercials and guest spots on television shows, including Undeclared and Maybe It's Me. These parts propelled her to larger roles: a part in the film Bring It On Again, the starring role in June, and a recurring guest spot as potential Slayer Vi on television's Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Thanks to Felicia and Wikipedia.
