Kathryn Felicia Day (born June 28, 1979 in Huntsville, Alabama) is an American actress, gamer, independent filmmaker, and total nerd. Her best known early television role was the Potential Slayer Vi on the final season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, though this may have been eclipsed by her recurring guest role of Charlie Bradbury in recent seasons of Supernatural; she appeared as Penny in Joss Whedon's Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog and starred as Cyd "Codex" Sherman in the popular web series The Guild (which she also created and wrote). In addition to being an actress and writer, she's also extremely smart; she was a National Merit scholar, began college at 16, and double-majored in mathematics and music at the University of Texas at Austin, graduating in the top 4% of her class. In 2012, she co-founded Geek & Sundry, which produces and publishes a wide variety of geeky web-videos. On August 11, 2015, she released her memoir, "You're Never Weird on The Internet (Almost)". Much to Felicia's surprise, the book was a notable success, reaching #4 on the U.K. bestsellers list, and #3 on the prestigious New York Times bestseller list.
On January 3, 2017, Felicia revealed a secret she'd kept for over thirty-seven weeks by posting a surprising announcement on Twitter: that she was pregnant with her first child. She gave birth on January 30, naming her daughter Calliope Maeve.

- Gamer Chick: Her two-year addiction to World of Warcraft was what inspired her to create The Guild. Since Geek & Sundry launched (and even moreso since her daughter was born) she doesn't have as much time to play anymore, but every time a new A-list RPG comes out, her Twitter feed fairly explodes with anticipation.

- That Came Out Wrong:
"Whoa, I'm getting so narrow I can't even keep my finger in here. *realizes what she says and begins to lose it* That was not meant to be dirty!"
- During a Flog segment where she was learning how to crochet, Felicia made the opening in the item she was crafting too small.
Felicia: I didn't mean that! Fuck you! Who would put "rub" there?! Have you — in the history — in the history of video games, have you ever seen —Ryon: *laughing* Look, Milton Bradley was new at this, okay?
- During the 2008 Comic Con panel for Dr. Horrible, when asked a question, she said she hadn't heard because, "I'm twittering under here." She didn't recognize the Double Entendre until the audience laughed and Neil Patrick Harris had some fun at her expense. As she noted in her book, Twitter wasn't all that well-known yet, so at least some portion of the audience probably had no idea what she was saying, just that it sounded dirty out of context.
- While reviewing her performance in Mark of the Assassin, she called it "Playing with herself" and while it was meant to be a deliberate Double Entendre, she couldn't stop cracking up during delivery.
- While doing a Lets Play of Marble Madness with her brother Ryon, Ryon misspelled the player name he was trying to type and had to erase some letters. Except in Marble Madness the erase button is labeled "RUB". Felicia then advised her brother to "Rub it out". Cue a spit-take by Felicia and a giggling fit from Ryon.
- Toilet Humor: The woman LOVES fart jokes.
- Case in point: She uploaded a YouTube video called Felicia Makes Fart Sounds with Her Mouth. It's Exactly What It Says on the Tin.
- Another case in point: This episode of The Flog. Theremins make fart sounds, which Felicia milks for all it's worth.
- In Co-optitude, a Geek & Sundry show where she plays retro games with her brother Ryon, they quickly developed the habit of naming their characters (when they could) Anuss (with a double "s") and Poopiez.
- Typecasting: Her roles follow a similar archetype of being primarily Adorkable Badasses. For example? Ninety percent of the roles we list.
