The eldest daughter of Alec and Janet King, Felicity often insists on taking on adult responsibilities and feels intellectually superior to her younger siblings and cousin Sara. Over the course of the series, Felicity wants to be a wife, a teacher and a doctor, but eventually runs the Avonlea Foundling Home.

gema-zamprognaGema Zamprogna’s professional career began when she asked her parents if she could try auditioning for television commercials. She was cast in the TV movie Challengers, playing a girl who disguises herself as a boy to be part of a music group. This role conflicted with her part in RTA, and fortunately, shooting schedules could be rearranged to allow Zamprogna to play Felicity. She reprised the role of Felicity for An Avonlea Christmas, and also acted alongside Zachary Bennett in the Sullivan film By Way of the Stars.

Zamprogna continued acting in several TV movies and series, and graduated from Queen’s University with a degree in Film and Drama in 1997.

She was a founding member of the Theatrefront Drama Group in Toronto, which describes itself as an “ensemble of artists who cross borders to create unique dramatic work”. Zamprogna is also a distinguished dancer and choreographer, and has appeared in dozens of roles on stage. She is also an entrepreneur, opening her own Pilates and acting studio. Zamprogna is married to Daniel Boich, and together they have two children and live in Toronto.
