Chabert has also appeared in various Hallmark Channel movies, saying "I love working for Hallmark, They've been so good to me. I have friends there now. I'm proud of their movies and the message of their movies."[3]

Early life

Chabert was born in Purvis, Mississippi, to Julie (née Johnson) and Tony Chabert. Her father, a French-speaker from Louisiana, is of Cajun, Sicilian and English descent; he worked as a maintenancence operations representative for an oil company.[4][5] Her mother has English, Scottish, and remote Italian ancestry.[6] Chabert has a younger brother, and two older sisters. She was "World's Baby Petite" in the "World's Our Little Miss Scholarship Competition" in 1985.[7] In 1992 and 1993 she played Young Cosette in the Broadway production of Les Misérables.


Chabert's first major role was as Claudia Salinger in Party of Five. Chabert made her debut to the big screen in the late 1990s starring as Penny Robinson in the fantasy-space thriller Lost in Space (1998). Since then, she has been the voice of Eliza Thornberry in the animated series The Wild Thornberrys, and has voiced Eliza in two films, The Wild Thornberrys Movie (2002) and Rugrats Go Wild (2003). She then had a supporting role in the parody film Not Another Teen Movie as Amanda Becker. She provided the voice for the title character's daughter Aleu in Balto 2: Wolf Quest (2002) and she provided the voice of Meg Griffin for the first production season of the animated sitcom Family Guy (1999), after which Mila Kunis took over the role as Chabert became busy with school work and her duties on Party of Five.[2][8]

Chabert played the title role in The Brooke Ellison Story, a movie produced and directed by Christopher Reeve, based upon a real-life quadriplegic woman who overcame many obstacles to graduate from Harvard University. She starred in Mean Girls (2004) and the television film Hello Sister, Goodbye Life (2006) on ABC Family. She appeared in a 2006 remake of Black Christmas. She appeared in an episode of Ghost Whisperer opposite former Party of Five costar Jennifer Love Hewitt. She performed the voice of Princess Elise from the game Sonic the Hedgehog for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. She also voiced Gwen Stacy in the animated series The Spectacular Spider-Man.

Chabert, along with Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams, and Amanda Seyfried, won the 2005 MTV Movie Award for Best On-Screen Team for Mean Girls. She won both the 1997 and 1998 Hollywood Reporter Annual YoungStar Award for Best Performance by a Young Actress in a Drama TV Series for Party of Five, and had been nominated three other times for work from 1999 to 2000.[6] The YoungStar awards honor the best film, TV and music performances made exclusively by six to eighteen-year-olds.

In 2007, Chabert starred in the pilot episode of the Fox comedy "The Hot Years", which revolved around the lives of four female friends who live together. The pilot was not ordered to series by Fox.[9]

Chabert was featured as cover girl of the January 2007 issue of Maxim,[10] and again in November 2013.

From 2013–2014, Chabert had a recurring role on the ABC Family sitcom Baby Daddy as Dr. Amy Shaw.[11]

Personal life

Chabert lives in Southern California, where she moved with her family in 1994 to begin work on Party of Five.

Chabert married her longtime boyfriend, David Nehdar, on December 22, 2013, in Los Angeles.[12] On February 27, 2016, she announced via Instagram that she and her husband are expecting their first child.[13] On September 1, 2016, the couple welcomed their daughter, Julia Mimi Bella.[14]
