Biography

Early life and acting career

Daily was born in Los Angeles, California, the daughter of comedic actor Bill Daily. Her longest lasting role has been as the voice of Tommy Pickles, which she has played for 17 years in the animated series Rugrats (1991–2004) and All Grown Up! (2003–2008).

In the early 1980s, she played Patti in Rod Stewart's "Young Turks" music video. From 1980 to 1982 she played the character Sandy Burns on the PBS series "The Righteous Apples". Daily appeared in 1983's Valley Girl, 1984's Streets of Fire, 1985's Pee-wee's Big Adventure (as his love interest Dottie), and 1989's Loverboy.

She made a small appearance in 1985 in the comedy film Better Off Dead where she is singing "One Way Love (Better Off Dead)" and "A Little Luck" on stage at a high school dance. The same year she had a small role in Fandango with Kevin Costner.

She has also provided the voice of Buttercup in The Powerpuff Girls (1998–2004), Rudy Tabootie in ChalkZone (2002–2004), Mambo in Duckman, "Dizzy" Flores in Roughnecks: Starship Troopers Chronicles, and as Wacho in the Nintendo GameCube RPG Baten Kaitos Origins.

She made a brief appearance on Friends, as Phoebe's old singing partner in 1997, and Daily appeared in the Rob Zombie film The Devil's Rejects (2005) as "Candy", an enthusiastic prostitute.

In 2006, Daily played the voice of "Baby Mumble", a hatchling penguin, in Happy Feet. She voiced Rhett (Ali's new friend) and Shorty (Littlefoot's adopted brother) on two episodes of the animated television series The Land Before Time.

Daily played Paris Hilton's mother in National Lampoon's Pledge This!; Daily's ex-husband, Rick Salomon, was Paris's co-star in her sex tape 1 Night in Paris.

Singing career

Daily also signed with A&M Records in 1985, (Working with Madonna's frequent collaborators John "Jellybean" Benitez and Stephen Bray) and it was in 1986 that the label released the R&B/Rock single "Say It, Say It". The song only made it to #70 on Billboard Hot 100, but claimed the #1 spot on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart. In the late eighties Stephen Bray told Rolling Stone Magazine that the song actually featured the voice of Madonna with only minor contributions by Elizabeth. Previous renditions of said song appeared as early as 1981. Her songs "Shake It Up" and "I'm Hot Tonight" were included in the soundtrack to the film Scarface. Those same songs were later included in the lineup of fictional radio station Flashback 95.6 in the Grand Theft Auto III video game. These same songs were also included in the Scarface: The World Is Yours video game, which is based on the 1983 film. Her hit "Love in the Shadows" was featured in the film Thief of Hearts and Circuit .

She also had a top 10 hit in 1987 with the song "Mind Over Matter" which is featured in the movie Summer School. Kelly Ripa can be seen featured on the now defunct dance show Dance Party USA lip syncing the song to the audience in one of the many featured dancer's routines. Daily plays guitar, harmonica, keyboards, and percussion. In her 1988 song, "Some People", she plays guitar and harmonica. Other singers had to join in because Elizabeth cannot sing and play the harmonica at the same time. She also sang a song that was used in The Breakfast Club called "Waiting" (it also appeared on the soundtrack); the tune is playing on the janitor's radio when he comes into the library. Daily released a single titled "Beautiful" that was made available through iTunes on April 29, 2008. She also sang the song "Dawn's Theme", used at the end of the movie "Streets", starring Christina Applegate.

Personal life

Daily was married to Rick Salomon from 1995–2000. They have two daughters, Hunter (b. 1996) and Tyson (b. 1998).[2] She has dated, among others, Jon-Erik Hexum, George Clooney, Nicolas Cage, Kato Kaelin, and Andrew "Dice" Clay.
