Bio

Jane Levy is an American actress best known for her starring role as Tessa Altman on the television sitcom Suburgatory, from 2011-2014.

Levy grew up in Northern California. Though the acting bug bit her early on (she starred in community theatre productions of Annie and The Wizard of Oz) in high school, she was the captain of the varsity soccer team and on the hip hop dance team. She also excelled in chemistry.

After a semester in the liberal arts program at Baltimore's Goucher College, Levy moved to New York to pursue acting at the Stella Adler Conservatory.

Two years later she moved to Los Angeles, and in a few weeks booked a five-episode arc as a trampy teen vixen in the John Wells Showtime series, Shameless (with William H. Macy).

A round of general meetings with film and television executives led to her being cast as the lead in Suburgatory.

Levy also recently appeared in her first feature, Nobody Walks, written and directed by the team behind Tiny Future, and in Josh Schwartz's debut feature film, Fun Size, with Victoria Justice and Chelsea Handler.

Levy lives in Los Angeles and enjoys cooking.
