Actress Rhea Seehorn studied painting and illustration when she was very young, following in the footsteps of her father and grandfather. As she got older, she developed a budding desire to become an actress and tentatively explored this route in college, but was uncertain until her father died, leaving her the advice to follow her dreams. She took his advice and jumped fully into acting, taking classes and soon performing on Broadway, before landing roles on TV and in films. Her first on-screen role came in 1998 in a small film called "A Case Against Karen." From there, she began to earn more credits, appearing in several more indie films like "Why Spain" in 1999 and "Eat Me!" in 2000. In 2003, she appeared on TV for the first time, landing the role of Cheri, the over-protective sister to a movie star in the short-lived sitcom "I'm With Her." After the show was cancelled the next year, she found herself in the comedy TV movie "Romy and Michele: In the Beginning," as well as in another recurring role in the dramedy "Head Cases." She has since had recurring roles in programs like "The Singles Table," "Trust Me," and "Franklin & Bash." In 2009, she also tried her hand at voice acting for the first time, with a role in the adult animated series "American Dad!."
