She is also the voice of Yuffie Kisaragi in the movie Final Fantasy VII Advent Children, as well as in the Disney/Square Enix game Kingdom Hearts. Romano finished a 31 week run of playing Belle in Disney's Beauty and the Beast on Broadway on September 12, 2004. For her Beauty run, she recorded a New York radio commercial in which she asked, "What's the sitch?" (from Kim Possible). On February 22, 2005 Christy won the very first Connecticut's Finest award.

However, in 2006, Romano stated in an interview with TV Guide that she was in between labels once again, this time with Virgin Records.

She also wrote a book entitled Grace's Turn, which received mostly positive reviews. According to her blog on her official website, Grace's Turn is the recipient of the New York Public Library's Book for the Teenage 2007.
