Cynthia Preston


B: May 18, 1968 in Toronto, Ontario

Cynthia Preston is sometimes credited as Cyndy, or Cindy Preston. She fell into acting quite by chance, and thanks to her mother, who suggested Cynthia take a self-improvement course to overcome her shyness. She was still in high school at the time. This led directly to Cynthia becoming a model at fifteen. Soon after leaving high school, CBS talent scouts contacted her and her acting career began when she was cast in the role of Jill Clayburgh’s daughter in the made for television movie, Miles to Go. Next time you see her listen closely and you may recognize the voice of Princess Zelda from various Super Mario Bros. cartoon series.
