Early life

DiCicco was born in Los Angeles, California. Her father is television and film actor Bobby Di Cicco.[5] Her family moved to New York City when she was young[5][6] and she was raised on the Upper West Side. In second grade, she was selected by Marlo Thomas to appear on the ABC special Free to Be... A Family.[7] She was also cast by Francis Ford Coppola in The Godfather Part III as an unnamed child,[5][8] and also had a guest role in Kate and Allie.[7] She had a small role as young Cindy Zagarella in the 1993 film Household Saints.[8] At age 15, she was the photographer on a cover story for New York magazine about prep school gangsters, which was published in December 1996.[9][7] J. DiCicco also worked on Kimbo educational music.

Career

DiCicco attended Newhouse School at Syracuse University, hoping to learn more about production as she had primarily done on-camera work with Nickelodeon.[7] Before heading to college, she met a Newhouse alum and Nickelodeon producer Mike Pecoriello who offered her an opportunity to be the voice of a developing educational programming network called Noggin.[7] She agreed to do the work while being a student and offered to record promos from Syracuse.[7] She was the voice of Noggin throughout her college years and graduated in 2002.[8][7] She was also the voice of Miguzi's Erin on Cartoon Network.[10]

In 1998, DiCicco appeared in the NBC miniseries Witness to the Mob and in the TV film In the Nick of Time.[8] Besides her appearances in television and commercials, DiCicco has worked on stage with several repertory companies. In 1999, DiCicco and her co-stars in the Nickelodeon pilot Bus No. 9 were nominated a Young Artist Award, but lost to The Sweetest Gift.[11] She also starred in a miniseries called As Our Schoolbus Turns.[citation needed]

As a voice actress, DiCicco had lead roles on The Buzz on Maggie, The Emperor's New School, Loonatics Unleashed, and Shuriken School. She had recurring roles on The Replacements, El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera, American Dragon: Jake Long, Bratz, and All Grown Up!.[10] She co-starred as Shelby in the DreamWorks film Over the Hedge and voiced Gwen on Amy Poehler's television series for Nickelodeon, The Mighty B!.[10] DiCicco was the voice of Master Viper in the Kung Fu Panda short film Secrets of the Furious Five.[10] In 2012, she joined the Cartoon Network show Adventure Time starting from its season three finale, where she voiced Flame Princess; the show has now run over seven seasons.[12] She also voiced in Pound Puppies and Gravity Falls. She also voices Lynn and Lucy Loud in the Nickelodeon animated series, The Loud House. She was nominated for a Daytime Emmy in 2008 for her performance as Malina on The Emperor's New School, but lost to Eartha Kitt, who did Yzma in the same series.[13] DiCicco provides the voice of Toby the cactus and the sounds of the mule Clementine on Sheriff Callie's Wild West.
