Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij's new Netflix series The OA, on which I play Ali (Jesse's "stonery sister", as one viewer so aptly described me), is currently the #1 TV series on IMDb! It's an honor to be a part of this unique series and a pleasure to end the year on such a high note. :)

Happy holidays! Enjoy Zombie Christmas - new animation!

December 2016

Happy Chanukah and Merry Christmas to those who celebrate! Just in time for the latter, check out Zombie Christmas.

December 2016

Season 1 of Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij's new series, The OA, is now available on Netflix. I play Ali, Jesse (one of the main character)'s sister. The series is truly fantastic and certainly worth a watch, but if you'd like to find me right away, start at about 17:15 into Episode 4.
