Elvy Yost is an American actress and singer best known for her starring role as Sophie Novak, the firm's in-house counsel and investigator and its resident hacker, formerly of Anonymous, in the mystery thriller television series The Catch.

Elvy's feature film debut was in Todd Graff's Bandslam, produced by Walden Media, in a role originally written for a boy. After her audition, Graff promptly rewrote it for her. For that film, as in Spike Lee's remake of the Korean cult classic Oldboy, starring Josh Brolin, Elvy played the cello.

She's a multi-instrumentalist, but her main musical focus is singing. Elvy's YouTube channel has garnered much attention for her affectionate covers of an eclectic array of songs.

Elvy continued her screen career with recurring roles on NBC's The Office and Todd Haynes's Golden Globe and Emmy award winning HBO miniseries Mildred Pierce, working opposite Kate Winslet.

Her other screen credits include the indie Brightest Star with Chris Lowell and Rose McIver; guest starring on Southland, opposite Regina King who will direct a forthcoming episode of The Catch; a short film by Sundance favorite Kenny Riches called How to Speak Clearly; and Shia LaBeouf's short film

Other films include James Ponsoldt's The Circle, adapted from the Dave Eggers novel of the same name starring Emma Watson and John Boyega; and The List, starring Patrick Fugit and Victoria Tennant.

Elvy's theatre credits include Alena Smith's The New Sincerity, directed by dear Bob Balaban, and MacArthur ‘Genius' Samuel D. Hunter's Pocatello at Playwrights Horizons. In Pocatello, the New York Times' Ben Brantley wrote that Elvy delivered "the most piquant performance" and that it was spot-on.

Her other theatre includes Juliet in Romeo & Juliet, with the San Francisco Shakespeare Festival; and also at Actors Theatre of Louisville, Curse of the Starving Class, with Judith Ivey; Balm in Gilead, with Michael Shannon, produced by Beau Willimon; and singing and music composition for several Chekhov performances at Lake Lucille, with Adam Driver, Deirdre O'Connell, Annie Baker and T.R. Knight.
