Lizzy Caplan is one of the select few American actresses to have blazed both the big and small screens, leaving an indelible impression on aficionados and critics alike. Her acting career took off in 1999 when she debuted in the TV series, ‘Freaks and Geeks’. She appeared on the silver screen for the first time in the movie, ‘Orange County’ (2002), playing an insignificant character.
In 2004, she perfectly portrayed the eccentric teenager Janis Ian in Mean Girls, arguably one of her best roles. She followed it up with impressive performances in ‘Love is the Drug’ (2006), ‘True Blood’ (2008) and ‘Cloverfield’ (2008)—the last meriting her a ‘Saturn Award’ nomination for Best Supporting Actress. She also earned kudos for her roles in the TV sitcoms, ‘New Girl’, ‘Party Down’ and ‘The Class’.
Lizzy’s best claim to fame is for starring as Virginia Johnson in the Showtime TV series ‘Masters of Sex’ that was broadcasted from 2013 to 2016. She was nominated for the ‘Critics’ Choice Television Award’, Primetime Emmy Award’ and the ‘Satellite Award’ for her performance in the TV series.
