Jessica DiCicco was an American actress, born on June 10, 1980 in Los Angeles, California, who is mostly known for her voice acting roles. DiCicco was the daughter of Billy Di Cicco, a prolific actor through the 1970s and '80s most well known for his roles in films like Steven Spielberg's "1941" (1979). Her family moved to New York City at a young age, and DiCicco was discovered among second grade students by Marlo Thomas for the ABC/Soviet Russia after-school special coproduction "Free to be a Family" (1988). DiCicco made her acting debut the next year in an episode of the final season of the sitcom "Kate & Allie" (CBS, 1984-89), and was cast as an uncredited child by Francis Ford Coppola for "The Godfather Part III" (1990). She attended the Newhouse School at Syracuse University, from which she graduated in 2002. DiCicco began her prolific voice acting career, on which she has since almost exclusively focused, as the titular character on the animated children's show "The Buzz on Maggie" (Disney Channel, 2005-06). She also voiced her first video game character, Franke Athens, for the cult classic "Psychonauts" (2005) the same year. DiCicco played Lexi Bunny in the animated "Looney Tunes" sci-fi/action reboot "Loonatics Unleashed" (The CW, 2005-07), and Malina in "The Emperor's New Groove" (2000) television spin-off "The Emperor's New School" (Disney Channel, 2006-08). She landed her only voice role in an animated feature film with a small part in Dreamworks' "Over the Hedge" (2006), and that same year, played Olette in the video game "Kingdom Hearts II," a wildly popular series that blends Disney characters and worlds with the "Final Fantasy" video game series. DiCicco also voiced the first words of Mitchell and Cameron's adoptive daughter Lily in a 2010 episode of "Modern Family" (ABC, 2009- ). In 2012, she landed the role of Flame Princess on "Adventure Time" (Cartoon Network, 2010- ), her most well-known role and a fan favorite character of the eccentric animated show, and another of her widely recognized roles, Tambry on "Gravity Falls" (Disney Channel, 2012-16). DiCicco provided her voice for the video game "Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII" (2014), and joined the main cast of "The Loud House" (Nickelodeon, 2016- ).
