Born in Silver Spring, Maryland, Cara Delizia became a well-talented teen actress, guest starring in several shows before starring in two successful dramas.
During the time period of 1998 - 2000, Cara was the main star in the popular television series, So Weird
. She played the character Fiona "Fi" Phillips, a young girl who took after her father's passion of the paranormal. She traveled the United States on her mother's, Molly Phillips (Mackenzie Phillips), tour bus, along with her brother, Jack (Patrick Levis
), as her mother is a famous singer. Throughout the series, Fi encounters the strangest types of things, such as vampires, aliens, Bigfoot, and more. However, her father's passion ultimately lead to his death when she was three years old. Fi never had a chance to really get to know her father, though she was able to somewhat meet him in the second season finale of the series.
She returned for the first episode of the third season, in which she chanted a spell that would protect her family from her connection to the paranormal, which she passed on to Annie Thelan (Alexz Johnson
), who took over the show from Fi, who stayed behind at Annie's house, while Annie toured with Molly. After Fi left the show, the darkness of the past seasons came with her. The series' rating of TV-PG (the same rating as Futurama
, a popular teen/ adult cartoon) was lowered to a TV-Y7, with sillier plots than before.
The series is widely considered an X-Files for children, though it still has a great fan-base. Many prefer Cara's performance as Fi to Alexz
's performance as Annie.

, Cara also guest starred on various popular television series, such as ER
, 7th Heaven
, and Mad About You
After her work on So Weird
