Season 1 of Atypical (Netflix) image

So excited to be recurring on Atypical, a new original comedy series on Netflix. I play, Kathy, the (somewhat uptight but well-intentioned) leader of the local support group for parents with autistic kids, as well as a friend to Jennifer Jason Leigh’s character, Elsa, who frequents the group often. As much as Kathy wants to honor and support everyone’s journey, she is also quite opinionated, which made her so much fun to play. In fact, here’s a fun interview I did with "Actress Wendy Braun Brings a Strong Opinion to New Netflix Series ‘Atypical.’” Read the full article here. #Atypical #Netflix #NormalIsOverrated #ActorInspiration #actorlife ⭐️ #setlife? #lovinglife It’s exciting to be part of a brand new series that Forbes is calling, the best original series Netflix has ever ...

Recurring on Atypical (Netflix) image

So excited to be recurring opposite Jennifer Jason Leigh and Michael Rapaport as 'Kathy' in the new Netflix original heartfelt comedy series Atypical.

His quest for a "normal" life also impacts his family in ways that no one could have predicted.

To join this uniquely relevant coming-of-age comedy where I get to play a character that tries to be positive and hopeful, yet is direct and (deeply) flawed was an amazing experience. We really are all trying ...

Guest of Honor – Charity Event image

I had the privilege of being the guest of honor and guest speaker at a charity event, back in my hometown of Northbrook, Illinois, a northern suburb of Chicago. (Basically where all the John Hughes movies were filmed.) They asked me to talk about how I went from performing in the musicals, plays, variety shows + choirs at Glenbrook South High School to becoming an established actress in Hollywood. The more I thought about my journey from performing back high school to now having over 75 tv + film credits, I realized that the running theme along the way, was that I simply...kept going. I kept going in the face of obstacles. I kept in the face of uncertainty. I kept doing the things ...

So much fun as the top-of-show guest star on Grey's Anatomy. Meredith confronts her fear of flying, and I'm of no help. I'm the pilot. And of course, I provide the turbulence. #GreysAnatomy #ABCTelevision #TGIT #Shondaland Here's my plane.  Doing a night shoot at 3am at Van Nuys airport.  Such an amazing crew.
