Natalia Livingston was born in Johnstown, PA and grew up in Macon, GA. She started acting in high school and dabbled in acting classes at Emory University, where she earned her degree in sociology.
Prior to embracing her dream of acting professionally, Livingston worked at an orphanage in Mexico and at a hospital, taught Spanish, and even interned with a social worker for a year-and-half. But unable to shake the desire to act, Livingston ultimately packed her bags and drove cross-country to California. She scored parts in Spanish McDonald’s commercials and plays and continued to hone her craft in acting classes. While she was working in the gardening section of a Home Depot in Hollywood, her future manager came in looking to landscape his front yard and the two struck up a conversation about acting that would soon lead to her daytime debut. During a trip home to Macon, her friends helped her shoot the audition tape for GENERAL HOSPITAL and she was cast as Emily Quartermaine two months later in 2003. Livingston left GH in 2008 to pursue other opportunities, but ended up returning to the show as a new character, Rebecca Shaw, in 2009.
In late 2010 Livingston took on the role of Taylor Raines on DAYS OF OUR LIVES.
