|Born||Patricia M. Cast
November 16, 1966
Medford, New York, U.S.
|Spouse||Bat McGrath (2000-present)|
In 1970 the Cast family moved from New York to California, after traveling across the country in a 28 foot Winnebago. The Cast family was fortunate to see a great deal of the United States.
Her father, Richard Cast (deceased) is credited as her inspiration and mentor in those early years and it was his coaching and theatrical arts teachings that formed the foundation for her career. While her father was attending college at Saddleback College she was recruited by the director of the acting department Wynn Pierce, at a very young age and her acting quickly gained the attention of talent scout "Estelle Hertzburg" who quickly placed her in the Bad News Bears Television Series.
Cast is currently married to Bat McGrath, whom she married on July 20, 2000.
She first came to prominence on the television series The Bad News Bears in 1979 as Amanda Whirlitzer (Tatum O'Neal's character in the movie version). After years of acting in TV movies, she starred with Jason Bateman as his sister on the television series It's Your Move. This performance led to a short stint on the soap opera Santa Barbara.
Her most-recognized role is as "Nina Webster" on the daytime drama, The Young and the Restless. Nina was initially a very small, supporting role tied into the teenage pregnancy theme (she was an acquaintance of the main character, Molly Stark, a teenage runaway befriended by Cricket Blair (Lauralee Bell) of the summer 1986 season. However, her character proved so popular that she was added as a regular after the storyline ended. She started on the show in 1986 and her character matured considerably, marrying into the wealthy Chancellor family. Cast made a brief return to Y&R in November 2008, and returned to the role full time in May 2009.
Cast nabbed a Daytime Emmy Award win for Outstanding Younger Actress In a Drama Series in 1992. Nearly 2 decades later, she was nominated in the Best Supporting Actress category in 2011.
