Birthplace: Wilmington, Delaware, USA

Within two years of graduating from New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, 22 year-old Aubrey Plaza landed a role on a highly-touted network TV sitcom and was cast in two major motion pictures. A native of Delaware, Plaza studied improvisation in New York City and honed her comic skills as a member of several sketch comedy troupes. Her appearance as an angry, eye-rolling teenager with substance abuse and mother issues in the Internet-exclusive comedy series "The Jeannie Tate Show" led to her casting as the deadpan college intern April Ludgate on NBC's "Parks and Recreation" (2009-15), where she perfected the dull-eyed stare and ironic enthusiasm that would become her comic stock-in-trade. Supporting roles in Judd Apatow's "Funny People" (2009) opposite Adam Sandler and Seth Rogen and in Edgar Wright's "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" (2010) with Michael Cera raised the actress's Hollywood stock, but it was through her continued participation in original online comic content that Plaza's fan base blossomed and allowed her to become a breakout talent to watch. After "Parks and Recreation" concluded its run, Plaza moved into leading roles with the zombie-themed romantic comedy "Life After Beth" (2014), manic farce "Mike and Date Need Wedding Dates" (2016) and "The Little Hours" (2017), based on a story from the 14th-century collection The Decameron, while expanding her range with supporting roles in films ranging from Hal Hartley's indie drama "Ned Rifle" (2014) to Robert De Niro's "Dirty Grandpa" (2016). Her return to television came as co-star on the cable superhero series "Legion" (FX 2017- ).

QUOTES FROM Aubrey Plaza CHARACTERS

Lenore says: Rip my bra off like your ripping open your Social Security Check!

Lenore says: Woops, I guess they just slipped off.

Brandy Klark says: Teabagging. Must be British.

Darius says: There's no sense in nonsense, especially when the heat's hot.

Kenneth says: You ever face certain death?

Darius says: If it was so certain, I wouldnt be here, would I?

Darius says: Do you sell guns here?

Kenneth says: What kind of guns?

Darius says: I don't know. Something sexy, and affordable, with killing power.

Kenneth says: You should try C&R Guns in Welkins. The state of Washington does not allow the sale of firearms on the business premises of a grocer.

Darius says: Hmm. What about those thingies, with the spikey ball at the end of the chain...thingies, you know, do you have those?

Kenneth says: What exactly is the intended use? Is there a pest problem or hunting?

Darius says: Well if your ad had been written properly I might have a better idea of what I need.

Darius says: I don't know. Something sexy, and affordable, with killing power.

Darius says: Well, there's no sense in nonsense. Especially when the heat's hot.

Darius says: I have no funk. I'm totally funkless.

Kenneth says: To go it alone or to go with a partner? When you choose a partner, you have to have compromises and sacrifices, but it's a price you pay. Do I want to follow my every whim and desire as I make my way through time and space? Absolutely. But at the end of the day, do I need someone when I'm doubting myself and I'm insecure and MY heart fails me? Do I need someone, who when the heat gets hot, has my back?

Darius says: Sooo... Do you?

Kenneth says: I do.

Arnau says: What's wrong with this guy?.

Arnau says: What's wrong with this guy?

Darius says: What makes you think there's something wrong with him?.

Darius says: What makes you think there's something wrong with him?

Jeff says: Because he thinks he can go back in time.

Darius says: There's no sense in nonsense when the heat is hot.

Arnau says: What kind of lasers?

Darius says: I don't know. I'm not a friggin' storm trooper.
