Before acting on screens, Travis acted in stages. She showed her interest in acting ever since she was in high school. Her first-ever work after graduating high school was in a play called ‘It’s Hard to be a Jew’.

Then she continued up acting in her stage career by acting in ‘Brighton Beach Memoirs’, a film-based play. A member of the company, Naked Girls, she was also in ‘Aven U-Boys’, ‘King of Connecticut’, ‘I’m Not Rappaport’ and ‘My Children, My Africa’.

On-screen career

Nancy finally became a part of television in 1985. She made her screen debut through the novel-based movie ‘Malice in Wonderland’. Like many other fellow celebrities, she acted in numerous small roles at the start.

She continued up working in small roles acting in television series including Spenser: For Hire (1986), ‘Fallen Angles’ (1993). ‘Three Man and a Baby’ movie and it’s sequel also had an unforgettable part of Nancy.

In terms of her work in television, she has been as active as in the movies. She has had regular roles in dramas like Almost Perfect (1995-1997), Work With Me (1999), Becker (2002-2004), and The Bill Engvall Show (2007-2009). You might not be aware but she has worked in popular series like Desperate Housewives (2010), Grey’s Anatomy (2011), and How I Met Your Mother (2011).

Voice Roles

Her profession also includes voice acting in Duckman (1994-1997), The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest (1996), and Superman: The Animated Series (1998).

Some of you might think Nancy’s work to be unnoticeable but even her small roles have a great impact on the movie. After all, only the main characters cannot make the movie the best one.

There is the hard work of every single actor in the work. Whether it is a minute or an hour in the movie, that person is still an actor and screen-time doesn’t decide her ability but her acting does and she has proved that through her regular works, right?
