Wendy BraunAccomplished actress Wendy Braun has built a dynamic career as a versatile performer shining in roles in both film and television.

Recognized recently for her hilarious portrayal as the uptight but well-intentioned Kathy, on four seasons of the acclaimed original Netflix series, Atypical, opposite Jennifer Jason Leigh and Michael Rapaport.  TV.com declared, “A stand-out among the recurring cast is Wendy Braun,”

Her comedic portrayal earned Braun For Your Emmy® Consideration status as “Outstanding Guest Actress In A Comedy Series.”

Audiences have been enjoying a range of scene-stealing performance from Braun on the big and small screen for years. Her extensive TV and film credits include starring alongside Danny Trejo in the feature film Donny’s Party, as well recent appearances in the comedy feature, The Clapper alongside Ed Helms and Tracy Morgan, ABC’s medical drama Grey’s Anatomy opposite Ellen Pompeo, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia beside Danny DeVito, and IFC’s hit Documentary Now! with Fred Armisen.

Braun has racked up over 80 film and TV credits, including guest-starring roles on hit shows like This Is Us, The Mentalist, Bones, Criminal Minds, Castle and Navy NCIS; and recurring roles on iCarly and General Hospital, which lead to a contract role in the spin-off, General Hospital: Night Shift.

Braun has more than 1000 voice-over credits, including the sexy, snarky undercover agent, Gianna Parasini in the hugely popular video game series, Mass Effect; and alongside SNL alum Bobby Moynihan in Cartoon Network’s animated comedy series, We Bare Bears.

From the idyllic suburb of Northbrook, Illinois, Braun began acting at age 12 as The Scarecrow in The Wiz. Her mother was the famed Miss Beverly, host of the children’s classic television show Romper Room and her father was a Navy pilot.  They both encouraged Wendy’s love of performing.

After graduating early from Indiana University and moving to Los Angeles, Wendy became a recognizable face, after being offered a 26-spot national commercial campaign for Mervyn’s, which showcased her unique comedic timing, improv talent and personal charisma.

She has since returned to the Chicago stage to star in The Vagina Monologues at The Apollo Theatre, as well as perform stand-up comedy at Zanie’s in Chicago. Braun has also performed stand-up at Los Angeles’ prestigious The Improv + The Comedy Store.

Residing in Los Angeles, Braun enjoys balancing career, family, marriage and motherhood with her husband, actor, Josh Coxx, and their two exuberantly active sons.
