Biography

Within two years of graduating from New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, 22 year-old Aubrey Plaza landed a role on a highly-touted network TV sitcom and was cast in two major motion pictures. A native of Delaware, Plaza studied improvisation in New York City and honed her comic skills as a member of several sketch comedy troupes. Her appearance as an angry, eye-rolling teenager with substance abuse and mother issues in the Internet-exclusive comedy series "The Jeannie Tate Show" led to her casting as the deadpan college intern April Ludgate on NBC's "Parks and Recreation" (2009-15), where she perfected the dull-eyed stare and ironic enthusiasm that would become her comic stock-in-trade. Supporting roles in Judd Apatow's "Funny People" (2009) opposite Adam Sandler and Seth Rogen and in Edgar Wright's "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" (2010) with Michael Cera raised the actress's Hollywood stock, but it was through her continued participation in original online comic content that Plaza's fan base blossomed and allowed her to become a breakout talent to watch.
