Bio

Megan Hilty is an American actress who works primarily in musical theatre best known to television audiences for her starring role as seasoned triple-threat Ivy Lynn, an ensemble performer who has spent years pursuing stardom only to be bumped back into the chorus again and again, in the musical drama series Smash, from 2012-2013.

She also starred as Lorelei Lee, the diamond-loving blonde made famous by Carol Channing, in the Encores! production of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes at New York City Center. The production was directed by John Rando with music direction by Rob Berman and choreography by Randy Skinner.

Set in the Roaring Twenties, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes follows the madcap adventures of the original dumb blonde, Lorelei Lee, as she sets sail for Europe with her best friend, Dorothy Shaw.

A native of Seattle, Hilty moved to New York City after graduating from the prestigious Carnegie Mellon University and quickly made her Broadway debut as Glinda in Wicked. She went on to perform the role in both the national tour and in Los Angeles.

After receiving rave reviews for her portrayal of Doralee Rhodes in Broadway's 9 to 5: The Musical, Hilty was honoured with nominations for Lead Actress in a Musical at the Drama Desk Awards, Outer Critics Circle Awards, the Drama League Awards and L.A. Stage Alliance Ovation Awards.

She starred in Two by Two as part of the reprise series in Los Angeles, opposite Jason Alexander, Steve Weber and Faith Prince. Hilty has also performed with the Cincinnati Symphony and at Feinstein's in New York City.

Hilty's voice has been featured on Disney's The Secret Life of Magic Gourd, Phineas and Ferb, Glenn Martin DDS and American Dad, as well as the singing of Snow White in the film Shrek the Third. Her voice can also be heard in Disney's television special Tinker Bell and the Pixie Hollow Games.

Her television credits include guest-starring roles in Melissa & Joey, Bones, The Closer, Desperate Housewives, CSI, Shark, Ugly Betty, Eli Stone and The Suite Life of Zack & Cody.

Among Hilty's film credits are The Bitter Feast and the short film The Happiest Man Alive, opposite Justin Chambers.
