You know her as the blossoming braided sweatheart, Beverly Marsh, but guess what else she’s been doing??
To be perfectly honest, she’s changed so much since IT that I didn’t recognize her in any of the rolls that are listed on her filmography when I watched the movies. Once I knew it was her, though, I wasn’t at all surprised.
In 2006, she stole the show (for me anyway) in She’s The Man, also starring Channing Tatum and Amanda Bynes, a modern take on Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. Her geektastic lines and overt love of cheese leave the impression of slightly creepy virgin loner geek who watches WAY too much porn. Wait, is there such a thing?? Don’t worry though, she gets her guy in the end.
Then, in 2007, she surprised me yet again by taking the small but incredibly memorable role of the Punk Receptionist in Juno. I laughed so hard at her one line that I nearly choked and I’ll definitely never look at pie the same way again.
Most recently, she’s been on a few episodes of Supernatural, a show I’m sad to say, I don’t watch, so I cannot comment. At least she’s keeping busy.
