    You made "The Nanny." Without you it would not have been one half as successful as it was! Good show!

    ellaJan 27, 2011

    NicholeJan 20, 2011

    I think that you were a great actor on The Nanny. You know how to make people laugh.

    ShoshanaJan 18, 2011

    I played the little sister of your love interest in Peer Gynt at ACT in SF. I just saw you in Prestige and all the memories cam flooding back. You're great!

    Everybody loves you on the Nanny but I remember when you were on Texas and an episode of Highway to Heaven. I really enjoy watching you act.

    Mr Davis thanks for the `Nanny show`. I watch it fifth time now and I know I will surely watch it for a sixth time... Your performance is extremely enjoyable! Thanks again!

    VivianSep 6, 2010

    You are a talented actor no roll is to small for you, you make any character come alive shinning over the others. I enjoyed see in you in the old episodes of Colombo, Cagney and Lacey and The Nanny we miss you in the Nanny reunion.
