Biography

Mindy Cohn played the sweet and smiley Natalie Green on the popular '80s sitcom "The Facts of Life" from 1979 to 1988. Born in Los Angeles in 1966, she was discovered by the show's star, Charlotte Ray, and its producers during their visit to Westlake High School to do research for the show. While working on the series Cohn found plenty of extracurricular work -- she made guest appearances on "The Facts of Life"'s parent series, "Diff'rent Strokes", as well as "21 Jump Street", "Charles in Charge", and the feature film "The Boy Who Could Fly". Even though the '90s were less generous to the talented actress, and she showed reluctance to play too heavily on her child-star success, she launched a comeback with the 2001 TV movie "The Facts of Life Reunion". The roles that followed, in small-budget films "Under the Gun" and "Swing", and the series "One on One" and "Kim Possible", led to her taking over as the voice of Velma in the 2000s' new "Scooby-Doo" franchise of cartoons, videos, and video games. On top of her continuing work on "Scooby-Doo", Cohn earned a degree in cultural anthropology from Loyola Marymount University.
