"Gillian Jacobs"


Gillian McLaren Jacobs (/ˈɡɪlɪən/; born October 19, 1982) is an American actress. She is known for her role as Britta Perry on the NBC comedy series Community.

Jacobs was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Her mother, Martina Magenau Jacobs, was a Carnegie Mellon University director of alumni relations at the Heinz College. Her father, William F. Jacobs Jr., was an investment banker. She was raised in the Pittsburgh suburb of Mt. Lebanon. She is of French, German, Irish, and Scottish descent. Her family owned the Jackson Koehler Eagle Brewery, established in 1847 in Erie, Pennsylvania, where her grandfather, John Martin Magenau Jr., served as President and CEO until its closure in 1978.
Jacobs began studying acting at the age of eight, and attended acting classes on Saturdays at the Pittsburgh Playhouse while growing up. She performed with the Pittsburgh Public Theater, where she was a perennial contender in the Public's Shakespeare Monologue Contest, leading her to be cast as Titania in its production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. After graduating from Mt. Lebanon High School in 2000, Jacobs moved to New York City, New York to attend the Juilliard School, where she was a member of the Drama Division's Group 33. She graduated with a bachelor's degree in 2004



Jacobs' first acting role came as Adele Congreve on the television series The Book of Daniel. Although she played Kim in the pilot of Traveler, the role was given to Pascale Hutton when ABC acquired the series. Jacobs subsequently made guest appearances on Law & Order: Criminal Intent and Fringe. In 2006, she starred in an Off-Off-Broadway production of Chris Denham's cagelove. While overall critical reaction to the play was negative, Jacobs earned praise in several reviews. The New York Times advised readers to "remember the name of Gillian Jacobs, a stunning Juilliard graduate who has the glow of a star in the making".
Jacobs has appeared in theatrical productions of The Fabulous Life of a Size Zero (2007), A Feminine Ending (2007), and The Little Flower of East Orange (2008). Her film work includes Gardens of the Night (2007), Blackbird (2007), Choke (2008), and The Box (2009). In 2009, she began playing Britta Perry on Community, which became her best known role to date.

Jacobs is teetotal. She is a fan of professional wrestling and is a regular at Pro Wrestling Guerrilla shows.
