Born and raised in Chicago, actress Heather Burns is best known for her comedic work, both on television and in film. Burns attended graduate school for acting in New York City, and snagged a supporting role in in the 1998 romantic comedy "You've Got Mail," starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan. She was later featured in the independent film "You Are Here*," along with her longtime boyfriend, Ajay Naidu. In 2000, Burns appeared as beauty contestant Cheryl Frasier in the popular Sandra Bullock comedy "Miss Congeniality," and reprised the role in the 2005 sequel, "Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous." Among other feature comedies to showcase Burns in a supporting part are "Two Weeks Notice," again starring Bullock, and "Bewitched," the Hollywood remake of the fantastical sitcom. She also kept busy on television, appearing in a recurring role on the financial drama series "The Street" and later starring in the short-lived sitcom "Twenty Good Years" with John Lithgow and Jeffrey Tambor. Continuing to gravitate towards comedies, Burns had a supporting turn in the feature romance "What's Your Number?," and regularly appeared on the HBO series "Bored to Death" as Leah, the sometimes-girlfriend of troubled comic-book artist Ray, played by Zach Galifianakis.
