Personal Quote:

(About the different characters that she has played and how they are like her actual self) I try to bring elements of my own personality to every character I've played, but I think I'm pretty similar to the character I'm playing now (on the series The Class (2006)). The biggest departure would have to have been Freaks and Geeks (1999) Sara, who was this sort of subordinate and shy girl. See more »

Trivia:

Grew up in a Reform Jewish family. Her ancestors were from Latvia, Austria, Lithuania, and Russia. See more »
