Biography

A veteran of the famed L. A.-based comedy troupe, the Groundlings, actress-comedian Rachael Harris first broke into show business doing commercials. A former shill for T-Mobile, Dinty Moore, Quaker Oats, and Geico, Harris became a familiar face in advertising in the mid-to-late 1990s, before making the leap to legitimate acting roles. Harris' Groundlings experience made her a perfect fit with Christopher Guest's stock company for the mockumentaries "Best in Show"(2000), "A Mighty Wind" (2003) and "For Your Consideration" (2006), as well as several guest turns on the improvisational cop comedy series "Reno 911!" (Comedy Central, 2003-09). Inspired work as Kirstie Alley's harried assistant on "Fat Actress" (Showtime, 2005-06) and as Ed Helms' frigid girlfriend in "The Hangover" (2009) also kept her in the public eye. It was, however, her portrayal of the sheltered, guilt-ridden housewife in writer-director Robbie Pickering's acclaimed comedy-drama "Natural Selection" (2011) that at last moved her from supporting player to lead actress. A utilitarian comedic actress who had truly paid her dues, Harris at last enjoyed the recognition she had long deserved with roles that showcased her exceptional talent.
