Wendy BraunAccomplished actress Wendy Braun has built a dynamic career as a versatile performer shining in roles in both film and television. TV.com declared, “A stand-out among the recurring cast is Wendy Braun,” for her hilarious portrayal as the uptight but well-intentioned Kathy, for four seasons of the celebrated original Netflix series, Atypical, opposite Jennifer Jason Leigh and Michael Rapaport.

Her comedic portrayal on the hit series (as the uptight but well-intentioned autism parent support group leader) has earned Braun For Your Emmy® Consideration status as “Outstanding Guest Actress In A Comedy Series.”

Braun has also recently enjoyed working alongside several comedy superstars, in the feature film, The Clapper (with Tracy Morgan + Ed Helms), the IFC hit Documentary Now (with Fred Armisen + BIll Hader) and in the FX’s It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia (with Danny DeVito).

Her extensive resume also includes guest-starring performances on hit series such as The Mentalist,  Bones, Criminal Minds, Henry Danger,  Navy NCIS, Castle, Harry’s Law, Faking It, Men Of A Certain Age, Bent, and All of Us.

Braun has also enjoyed recurring roles on several long-running series including iCarly and General Hospital, where her stand-out performance as the officious hospital administrator, Ms. Iris Sneed, garnered her a contract role on the spin-off series, General Hospital: Night Shift.

She has been directed by Hollywood’s best, from Ivan Reitman to Will Smith and has appeared alongside some of Hollywood’s biggest names in films such as A Perfect Getaway with Timothy Olyphant, Big Momma’s House 2 alongside Martin Lawrence, as well as opposite Zach Levi in the indie hit, Shades of Ray.

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.

Shortly after graduating 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.

As a highly sought-after voice-over talent with over 1000 voice-over credits, Braun recently plays the sexy, snarky undercover agent, Gianna Parasini in the hugely popular video game series, Mass Effect.

Up next, she guest stars alongside SNL alum Bobby Moynihan on the Cartoon Network’s animated hit comedy series, We Bare Bears.

Wendy currently resides in Los Angeles and enjoys balancing career, family and marriage with her husband, actor, Josh Coxx, and their two young + exuberantly active sons.
