Holly was born in Phoenix and raised in Scottsdale, Arizona to Dawn Powell Dell and Walton Wildy Dell Jr. She has two older brothers. She began performing at a very young age with Scottsdale Sizzlers (pom and cheer group) and loved to use her imagination to have backyard adventures playing make believe, singing her own tunes and creating her own 11.5" doll outfits. She studied dance, singing, art, acting, tennis, softball and more thru the Girl's Club, Scottsdale Recreation Centers and various other locations. At just 15 y.o., she began her performing arts studies at Scottsdale Community College where she obtained an Associate of Applied Science in the Motion Picture and Television Production department with emphasis on Acting/Directing and Dance Technology, as well as an Associate of General Studies with Honors, PTK and High Distinction. Following that she studied with various well-respected coaches such as Elayne Stein, Linda Waymire, Matthew Dearing, E.E Moe and more.


Her work has been featured in the: Almost Famous Film Festival (A3F), IFP Beat the Clock Film Festival, Phoenix Film Festival, San Tan Film Festival, Miami Film Festival and Arcadia Film Festival, showcasing at AMC and Harkins Theatres. In 2007, she won Best Actress for her role in All in a Day's Work with Catbrain Film Factory and again in 2009 for The After Vows. Holly has also worked on productions which featured Zero Dark Thiry actress, Jessica C. (Jolene) and been featured on the CW Network (Hidden Palms, Lionsgate Television).



She loves architecture, interior design, landscape architecture, fashion design, hiking, kickboxing, yoga and trying new things. Being adaptable and creative are two strengths. If she can paint, photograph, or perform she'll be happy! Holly continues to develop her craft, knowledge, friendships and experience and looks forward to exciting new opportunities.


As a babysitter, former Pre-K teacher and current Hip Hop instructor, Holly loves to work with kids and hopes to adopt a few when she is ready to begin a family of her own.
