About Megan Hilty
  • Megan Hilty

    Megan Hilty

    Megan Hilty is most recognizable for her portrayal of seasoned triple-threat Ivy Lynn in NBC’s musical drama Smash. She followed up the series with a starring role on the NBC comedy Sean Saves the World. Hilty received critical acclaim for her role of Brooke Ashton in the Roundabout Theater Company’s revival of Noises Off. She earned nominations for a Tony Award, Drama Desk Award and Drama League Award and won a Audience Award for Favorite Featured Actress in a Play. Her television credits include recurring roles on Girlfriends Guide to DivorceThe Good Wife,  Braindead, and Louie, among many others. Hilty regularly performs with orchestras and symphonies across the country. Her solo show—including her sold-out Carnegie Hall debut —has received critical acclaim. She recently released a live album comprising of songs from her recent concert tour, entitled “Megan Hilty Live at the Café Carlyle” and a Christmas album entitled “A Merry Little Christmas with Megan Hilty.” A native of Seattle, Hilty moved to New York City after graduating from the prestigious Carnegie Mellon University, and quickly made her Broadway debut as Glinda in Wicked. She went on to perform the role in both the national tour and in Los Angeles.
