Born and raised in New York, Nancy began her career as a child model and, along with her brother, Philip McKeon (who would later co-star in the long-running series “Alice” playing Linda Lavin’s son) numerous commercials. We first saw Nancy in a Hallmark commercial, one of the most sentimental gorgeous ads we have ever seen. When Phil booked “Alice,” the whole family moved to Los Angeles, and Nancy’s Hallmark commercial led to her being seen by the casting director for “the facts of life.” She joined us in 1980 for the show’s second season and the next nine years.

During the 1980s and 1990s, Nancy also starred in numerous TV movies, including “A Cry for Help: The Tracey Thurman Story” and “Strange voices.”

When “Facts of Life” ended, Nancy starred in other series, including “Can’t Hurry Love,” “Style and Substance,” and of course Lifetime’s “The Division,” where they incorporated her pregnancy into the storyline of the last season. Nancy also started directing during this time and was at the helm of several episodes and her short film “A Wakening,” which she also wrote.

In 2009, she appeared in a recurring role in the Disney show “Sonny with a Chance,” playing Demi Lovato’s mother. And in 2018 competed in season 27 of “Dancing with the Stars.”

Next up for Nancy will be a reoccurring role in the new Amazon series “Panic,” based on the Young Adult drama series from writer Lauren Oliver.
Nancy lives in Texas with her husband Marc and two daughters.
