Jillian Rose Reed was born in Hollywood, so it’s no surprise that she got caught by the acting bug. At seven years old, she was already performing at a children’s theater. She got the titular role on a production of Charlotte’s Web. Since then, she has performed in musicals and plays around her hometown of Michigan. Her first TV role was on the Nickelodeon show Zoey 101, but got recognized for playing Simone on the Showtime series Weeds in 2008. She then appeared on L.A. Vampire, before continuing her stint on the small screen. She played Kelly on the NBC comedy Community, later appearing on The Middle and the MTV series Awkward in 2011. There she played the quirky high school student Tamara.
