Highest Rated: 85% Pennies From Heaven (1981)
Birthday: Dec 25, 1947
Birthplace: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA
A native of Pittsburgh, veteran supporting actress Twink Caplan was on-stage at the city's Playhouse beginning at age five. She studied ballet for many years and danced briefly with a Russian ballet troupe before radically switching gears to work as a go-go dancer. Caplan then worked with a major New York magazine, on the radio as an executive producer, and as a talk show host, becoming the first female radio personality in Pennsylvania. Caplan came to Southern California while working with Bob Dylan's Rolling Thunder Revue. Electing to stay, she soon found work as an actress. Caplan made her feature film debut in Underground Aces (1980). Her most notable subsequent roles include that of the outgoing redhead Rona in the first two Look Who's Talking features and her turn as lovelorn teacher Miss Geist in Amy Heckerling's Clueless (1995), which Caplan also co-produced. Caplan and Heckerling have enjoyed a long professional partnership. Their collaboration began when Caplan, then a development executive at Columbia, co-produced Heckerling's television pilot Nineteen. In addition to Clueless, Caplan also produced Heckerling's film Loser (2000), and has taken supporting roles in several of her other films.
