Best known for her portrayal of young Marcee in the Academy Award-winning film "A Beautiful Mind," Vivien Cardone made her television debut last season as the spirited Delia Brown in The WB's hit Monday night drama "Everwood."
At 11 years of age, Cardone does not have many credits to her name, but the ones she does have may be a reflection of where she's headed. When she was just 8 years old, Cardone was selected by director Ron Howard and co-star Russell Crowe to play the role of Marcee, John Nash's imaginary young friend, in the critically acclaimed film "A Beautiful Mind." She and her mother received the exciting news 15 minutes after leaving the audition as they were filling up their tank at the gas station down the street.
Born in Port Jefferson, New York, and raised on Long Island, Cardone followed in her older sister's footsteps and began appearing in commercials when she was only three months old. Her first commercials were public service announcements for recycling and vaccinations. She has gone on to appear in several national campaigns for such companies as Pillsbury and Pizza Hut.
Her hobbies include playing, swimming, rollerblading, singing and dancing, including Irish step dancing, for which she has won awards. She also hopes to have the opportunity to horseback ride while working on "Everwood." Cardone and her siblings, two sisters and a brother, are home-schooled by their mother. In addition to her parents and siblings, Cardone shares her family's Long Island home with two dogs, a cat, fish and geckos.
