Nancy Daly

Nancy Daly is a very proud military brat. Her family is originally from Nebraska. She was born in Coronado, CA- her family is of Irish descent and her father’s famous quote upon looking out the window was- “Holy Mother of God! Another damn nice day!” She spent most of her childhood growing up in Virginia and Washington DC became her adopted hometown. She graduated from Smith College and studied in London at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts. She has worked up and down the east coast doing Regional Theatre- including Arena Stage, Shakespeare Theatre, Delaware Theatre Co, Virginia Stage Co, New Playwrights Theater, Washington Stage Guild and many more. She worked with Albert Finney, Maggie Smith and Jennifer Jason Leigh as their romantic and sympathetic maid, Maureen, in “Washington Square” which was filmed in Baltimore, MD and moved to Los Angeles soon after. She has appeared in dozens of lead and supporting roles in films- most recently in “Suburbicon” as Linda, Matt Damon’s Secretary and many TV roles including “The Kids Are Alright,” “Living Biblically,” “Criminal Minds,” “Playing House,” “Scrubs,” “New Girl”, “Joey” and “Homicide- Life on the Streets.” She has played multiple roles in several animation series. She wrote and performed her One Woman Show- “Massage on the Flip Side- Beating Up the Naked People” around the LA area from 2007-2010 and in 2018, her second One Woman Show- “What if I Fly?” was performed with an ensemble of female artists as a fundraiser for TimesUp. In 2011, Nancy founded and is the National Team Captain of Actors and Artists Unite to End Alzheimer’s- the first non-corporate Friends and Family National team for the Walk to end Alzheimer’s for the Alzheimer’s Association that has raised over $265,000 to date. She founded Heroes and Artists- a national team of artists who volunteer at VA Hospitals and VA Centers nationwide to honor and support our troops. She is a very happy Red Sox fan- loves any Boston team- and walks miles every year on numerous Alzheimer’s Walks to keep her promise to her dad to find a cure for Alzheimer’s in honor of her mother who died in 2012. The motto of her AA Unite team is-“When Actors and Artists Unite- the world can shift!” As the Irish say- “Slainte!”
