Lyndsy Fonseca

Born and raised in Northern California, Lyndsy Fonseca and her family relocated to Los Angeles when, at thirteen years old, she landed the role of Colleen Carlton on the award-winning CBS daytime drama, The Young and The Restless, where she spent the next three years wowing audiences and honing her craft.

After ending her three year commitment on The Young and the Restless Fonseca went on to several recurring roles on some of television's hottest shows, including a four episode arc on David E Kelley's award winning drama, Boston Public, the role of the daughter on CBS' How I Met Your Mother, and as Donna on the HBO series, Big Love.

Fonseca recently completed shooting the feature period piece FORT MCCOY, and plays Anna Gerkey, a Christian girl who falls in love with a Jewish solider during World War I. She can also be seen each week on the hit ABC show Desperate Housewives. She plays Dylan Mayfair, the inquisitive daughter of the manipulative Katherine Mayfair (Dana Delaney) who has no memory of her childhood. Fonseca was a series regular on the CBS show, Waterfront. She played Annabelle, the sharp tongued, political activist daughter of Joe Pantoliano and Mary Stuart Masterson. Fonseca is a recurring character on How I Met Your Mother, and Big Love, and can also be seen this season as a guest lead on the hit shows including House and CSI.

Fonseca also recently starred in the edgy, coming of age independent feature film, REMEMBER THE DAZE, in which she played Dawn, a girl who is realizing and coming to grips with her sexual orientation. REMEMBER THE DAZE premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival this past June, 2007 to rave reviews.

Fonseca currently resides in Los Angeles with her dog Romey. She spends her free time in dance class, acting class, hiking, singing, and hanging out with friends.
