Jane Levy's sharp comedic timing and onscreen charisma propelled her out of relative obscurity and into one of 2011's breakout television stars. She began acting at an early age, eventually training at the famed Stella Adler Studio of Acting in New York City before moving back to her birthplace of Los Angeles to pursue a full time entertainment career. Levy first made waves in Hollywood with a recurring role on "Shameless" (Showtime, 2011- ) as a vampy, punk teen who agrees to act as her gay friend's girlfriend. The edgy-yet-likeable role won Levy a slew of television fans and gained the attention of other networks. Fresh off her "Shameless" stint, Levy landed a starring role on the quirky ABC comedy series "Suburgatory" (2011-14) as a Manhattan-raised teen whose life turns upside down when her father decides to move them to a suburban neighborhood. Channeling the snarky attitude and fears of a city gal feeling trapped in a world of soccer moms and SUVs, Levy boosted her career from an ingénue to a respectable actress able to take on versatile roles.
