Engaging actress JoAnna García's talent for both straight drama and broad comedy allowed her transition successfully from juvenile roles to adult characters in primetime series like "Reba" (The CW, 2001- 07) and "Better With You" (ABC, 2010-11). She began her career in her teenaged years, commuting from her native Florida to Montreal to film the Nickelodeon/YTV series "Are You Afraid of the Dark?" (1990-1996). García soon graduated to guest shots on network television, which led to her long-running stint as Reba McEntire's pregnant daughter on the country star's well-loved sitcom. However, her attempts to land a follow-up series with the same degree of longevity as "Reba" were largely met with failure, as "Welcome to the Captain" (CBS, 2008), "Privileged" (CW, 2008-09), "Better With You" and "Animal Practice" (NBC, 2012) were all short-lived. García kept busy as a supporting player on television and features like "The Internship" (2013) while juggling philanthropic interests and motherhood. Throughout it all, García retained her footing in the entertainment industry as a bright and versatile talent.
