Mandy Moore

Singer / Actor

Born: 10 April 1984
Birthplace: Nashua, New Hampshire
Best known as: Singer of the pop hit "Candy"
Once a bubble-gum pop star in the manner of early Jessica Simpson and Britney Spears, Mandy Moore now works to be thought of as a maturing singer and actress. She was born in New Hampshire and raised in Orlando, Florida, where she became a local celebrity by singing national anthems for area sports teams. In 1999 she released her first album, So Real, which included the hit single "Candy." Her second album, I Wanna Be With You, was released in 2000. Her early films included the teen romances A Walk To Remember (2002, with Daryl Hannah) and Saved! (2004). Since then she has graduated to more mature roles and has appeared in Romance & Cigarettes (2005, starring James Gandolfini) and American Dreamz (2006, with Hugh Grant). Her fourth album, Coverage (2003), received a less than enthusiastic response, and in recent years Moore has focused on her acting career, including a role as Diane Keaton's daughter in Because I Said So (2007).
