From charming audiences in multiple TV series and movies, to captivating the world with her voice as the iconic Peanuts Gang member “Marcie” in the recent seven Peanuts/Snoopy productions,  Holly Gorski has captured the hearts of fans and critics alike. A versatile accredited actor and professional singer, Holly’s natural comedic ability and passion for acting and singing have propelled her to great success in the entertainment industry.

Holly Gorski is a professional actor and a JUNO-nominated singer known for her unique, super-charged, and powerful voice. Heavily trained in vocals and with much time spent in recording studios, Holly knows how to create genuine characters. Her distinctive voice with a slight raspiness, natural articulateness, impeccable enunciation, and dry delivery landed her the role of iconic Peanuts gang member Marcie, known for her intelligence and unassuming sweetness. Holly voices the ensemble lead role of Marcie in five critically acclaimed Peanuts Movies and two Peanuts TV series on Apple TV+, all executive produced by Craig Schulz, the son of Peanuts and Snoopy creator, the late Charles M. Schulz.

Holly is the voice of Marcie in both Peanuts TV shows titled The Snoopy Show, which has completed two seasons of thirteen episodes each, and Snoopy in Space, which comprises two seasons made up of twelve episodes each. Snoopy in Space was created through the general partnership between Peanuts Worldwide and NASA, which resulted in space-themed Snoopy toys and books being featured in McDonald’s Happy Meals to coincide with the launch of the TV show in 2019.

Holly’s natural flair and unique slight raspy voice brought Marcie to life through her genuine delivery and true understanding of her dry, kind, and oddly humorous character. Holly enjoyed learning some big NASA words and concepts for the intelligent Marcie, as production worked closely with NASA to deliver a truly authentic educational series. Loving everything NASA, this was another dream come true for Holly.

Through experience, Holly understands versatility, range, tone, consistency, clarity, good pacing, and exceptional enunciation—all required to voice the iconic Peanuts gang member, Marcie, alongside Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the rest of the well loved Peanuts gang.

Sharing the screen with A-list celebrities such as Drew Barrymore, Al Roker, Billie Jean King, Noah Schnapp and more, in the Emmy-winning Peanuts 70th Anniversary Documentary Who Are You, Charlie Brown?, narrated by Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o, has been a huge achievement for this talented young actor, with goals to earn an Oscar herself one day. Holly firmly believes that since acting and entertaining people are in her heart, success will continue.

Holly’s first big break came when she landed the recurring voice role of “Julia Goodway” in the Emmy-winning animation series Paw Patrol (Nickelodeon). Her live-action credits also include principal roles in Holly Hobbie (DisneyChannel/Hulu/FamilyChannel), where she played the Empress of Slime, aka Tappin’ Tabitha; Odd Squad: Mobile Unit (Netflix/PBS Kids/Prime Video) as Agent Oceana, as well as the voice-over roles of Agent Obie and Agent Oval and Super Mighty Makers (TVO Kids) as lead host Super Mighty Maker Holly.

Holly is also a member of the 3-piece teen girl trio GEN:ZED (previously known as GFORCE), who reached the quarter-finals of America’s Got Talent in 2019 and earned a JUNO nomination for Children’s Album of the Year in 2020. Holly is also a UNICEF Ambassador.

With top acting productions such as her work in the five Peanuts movies and two TV series, Paw Patrol, Holly Hobbie, Odd Squad: Mobile Unit and Super Mighty Makers, Holly has already made a lasting impression in the industry. Additionally, her singing projects with GFORCE, now a trio called GEN:ZED, and her incredible success on America’s Got Talent season 14 demonstrate her unique vocal and performance talents.

On America’s Got Talent, Holly and her group performed their original hit song “Break the Bank ” live, along a heavy hip-hop routine, which earned them four yeses from judges Simon Cowell, Howie Mandel, Julianne Hough, and Gabrielle Union. They further impressed the world at the Judge Cuts round, also blowing away guest celebrity judge Dwyane Wade, along with Simon, Gabrielle, and Julianne, with another clever, original song called “Simon Says,” singing live along a cleverly choreographed hip hop dance routine. They quickly moved on to the quarter-finals, landing on Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre stage,  singing live once again while dancing to their third original song, “It’s GFORCE,” as one of the final 30 acts from the 40,000+ that had applied to America’s Got Talent that season.  Holly’s contribution with her knack for complex hip hop routines while singing live, and her innate powerful vocals contributed to her group’s success.  Holly’s America’s Got Talent journey will forever remain in her heart.

Holly Gorski’s captivating story serves as an inspiration to aspiring actors and vocal artists everywhere. Through hard work, perseverance, and a genuine passion for entertaining, Holly shows no signs of slowing down. As she continues to shine in her acting roles and successfully delivers voice to beloved characters like iconic Peanuts gang member Marcie, Holly proves that dreams do come true, for those who believe in themselves and pursue their passions with unwavering dedication.
