Date of Birth: January 14, 1980 (see trivia, below)
Birth Name: Cordelia Celeste Chase
Nickname(s): Cordy, CeeCee
Born in Sunnydale, California—not to be confused with Sunnyvale, California—to loving parents, Cordy attended Sunnydale High School where she was a cheerleader and star of the annual talent show. Cordy was the center of her own group of friends, ‘the Cordettes,’ but she claims she had a great deal of respect for her rivals and high school enemies. Who could be at odds with the charismatic Cordy? “You’d be surprised,” she says.
After high school Cordy moved to LA to pursue acting. After a string of commercials she was picked up for the unaired pilot of “The Cordy Show.” The pilot tested so well that the show was bumped up by half a season and started in the spring of 2000 under the current title “Cordy!” Like most celebrities Cordy has been seen on numerous talk shows, magazine covers, and tabloids. However, there are persistent rumors of bizarre stories being squashed before they went to press. The response of the irrepressible Cordy: “People believe what they want.”
Cordy is quite tall, 5’7½”, with the last half inch being very important to her. Her height and the rest of her is “all real” according to the actress, who eschews plastic surgery and most body modifications—besides tasteful tattoos, of course. On the subject of looking good Cordy opines, “being beautiful is hard work. If it was easy, everyone would do it.”
