Kristin Chenoweth plays Olive Snook on Pushing Daisies.

Chenoweth is perhaps most well known for her Tony-nominated (and originated) role as Glinda in the 2003 Broadway musical Wicked, and her Tony-award-winning role as Sally in the 1999 Broadway revival of You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown. Her other notable roles include media consultant Annabeth Schott in the NBC drama The West Wing, Lily St. Regis in ABC's 1999 television version of Charles Strouse's musical Annie, and the recurring role of Ms. Noodle on Sesame Street. She also played Marian the Librarian in ABC's TV remake of The Music Man with Molly Shannon. She previously worked with Daisies executive producer and director Barry Sonnenfeld in the 2005 film RV as Mary Jo Gornicke.

In addition to her acting, she is also a singer. She has two albums, Let Yourself Go and As I Am released through Sony Records. On October 14, 2008, Kristin released her first Christmas album, A Lovely Way to Spend Christmas.


Responding to a question - Will you be singing on Pushing Daisies?
I don't want to sing just because it's gratuitous and expected. But I WILL be singing. It's a sad moment and it involves the dog. Olive just can't understand why she can't get the guy and she's a girl who always gets the guy.

Where is she now?

Ever since the cancellation of Daisies, Kristin has had a life of ups and downs. Her memoir A Little Bit Wicked: Life, Love, and Faith in Stages became a New York Times Best Seller. She has been touring to promote it. Among her failures were as the voice of the dimwit science teacher Miracle Grohe in the Fox animated flop Sit Down, Shut Up and as Skippy Pylon in a pilot entitled Legally Mad made by David E. Kelly for NBC that was never picked up. She will soon appear in an episode of the buzzworthy Fox show Glee as April Rhodes, which also stars Jayma Mays.
