Success arrived early for Alia Shawkat and she continues to establish herself as a highly sought after actress in both film and TV. She is best known for her role as Maeby Fünke in the cult series Arrested Development. She was last seen in Clea DuVall’s The Intervention which premiered at Sundance. 2016 promises to be a big year for Alia with leading roles in three films: Netflix’s Pee-Wee’s Big Holiday, the indie thriller Green Room and Amber Tamblyn’s directorial debut Paint It Black. She will also star in the TBS’ dark comedy series “Search Party” premiering this summer. Off screen, she is a talented jazz singer, pianist, painter and illustrator.
