Rita Volk is an Uzbek-born American actress and model best known for her starring role as Amy Raudenfeld, a sophomore at Hester High School and Karma's cynical best friend who goes with Karma's plan of faking being lesbians only to realise she might not be faking it, in the romantic comedy television series Faking It.
Born in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, Volk moved to San Francisco with her family when she was six years old. Approached by a modeling scout, she was given the opportunity to audition for commercials and instantly fell in love with acting.
From a small child through high school, Volk acted in school plays and further explored her burgeoning love for film which she claims, also, helped her and her family acclimate to the American language and culture.
After high school, Volk attended Duke University, where she graduated with a degree in psychology and premed. But she never lost sight of her passion for acting as she acted in student films and was a member of Inside Joke, Duke's sketch comedy troupe.
She made her screen debut when she guest starred in an episode of Rizzoli & Isles in 2012, followed with another guest starring role in Major Crimes the following year.
Volk made her feature film debut in the 2014 spoof comedy film The Hungover Games, before beginning her first starring role in television by headlining the MTV romantic comedy Faking It, which was renewed for a second season.
