Quirky blonde Desi Lydic is the kind of actress who, despite rarely snagging leading roles, makes a distinct impression with every second of screen time. For example, her character in Cameron Crowe's feel-good drama "We Bought a Zoo" Shea Seger, a.k.a. "Lasagna Mom," stands out as one of the film's brightest comedic moments. She lent her knack for humor to mindless flicks such as the 2009 spoof "Stan Helsing", but Lydic is best known for her standout performance as kooky guidance counselor Valerie Marks on the surprise hit MTV comedy series "Awkward.", as well as her recurring character on the steamy Jennifer Love Hewitt vehicle, "The Client List".
