This actress provides examples of:
- Nerd Glasses: She had an especially nerdy pair of glasses when she was young◊. And her character Britta on Community sometimes has some of her own.
- Older Than They Look: She's almost 40, but could easily pass for a 20-something.
- One of Us: Just look at her reaction to meeting New York Times crossword editor Will Shortz for the first time on an episode of To Tell the Truth. She also became a comic book fan while doing research for a documentary she directed for Marvel's 616.
- The Teetotaler: She swore off drugs and alcohol due to her father being an addict, not wanting to have the same problem.
- Unkempt Beauty: She confesses that she hates wearing makeup. Not that she needs it.
- Workaholic: She's admitted to being this with acting. Outside of her TV projects, she has a considerably large independent filmography.
