Stephanie Italia Ricci[1] (Italian pronunciation: [iˈtaːlja ˈrittʃi]; born October 29, 1986) is a Canadian actress who is best known for playing April Carver in the ABC Family series Chasing Life. She also co-starred as Maggie Winnock in the Cartoon Network live-action series Unnatural History and had a recurring role as Sasha in the Comedy Central series Secret Girlfriend.

Career[edit]

Ricci made her major acting debut in 2007, in the American Pie direct-to-video film, Beta House.[2] She then went on to have a recurring role on the Disney XD series Aaron Stone. Ricci also appeared in the music video “Hate” by Plain White T’s as the ex-girlfriend.

During 2009, she began appearing in American productions with minor roles in How I Met Your Mother, House and Greek. During that same year she had a recurring role in the Comedy Central series Secret Girlfriend as Sasha. In 2010, she co-starred in the Cartoon Network live-action series Unnatural History as Maggie Winnock. She also appeared in Clean & Clear commercial as herself. In 2011, she appeared in the short film Valediction.

In 2013, she appeared in a small role in Joseph Gordon-Levitt‘s directorial debut film Don Jon. Also in 2013, she was cast in the lead role of April Carver in the ABC Family series Chasing Life, the series premiered in 2014.[3] On October 2, 2015, ABC Family canceled Chasing Life after two seasons.[4]

Ricci joined the cast of Supergirl in December 2015 as Siobhan Smythe (aka “Silver Banshee”) – the character transforms from Kara’s rival and CatCo mean girl to full-on villain.[5] “I think they do a really good job with telling that story in a way that keeps her honest and doesn’t paint her as a one-dimensional villain,” Ricci says of her character. “You can see that there is still a good person somewhere in there; it’s just she’s choosing to put her away for now.”[6] Ricci is no stranger to the DC universe. Her fiancé Robbie Amell played Firestorm on The Flash in Season 1, and Robbie’s cousin, Stephen Amell, is Oliver Queen on Arrow.[7]
