Shawkat in March 2016
Born Alia Martine Shawkat
(1989-04-18) April 18, 1989 (age 27)
Riverside, California, U.S.
Occupation Actress, producer
Years active 1999–present
Height 1.55 m (5 ft 1 in)

Alia Martine Shawkat (/ˈæliə ˈʃkɑːt/ AL-ee-ə SHOH-kaht; born April 18, 1989)[1] is an American actress. She starred as Maeby Fünke in the Fox/Netflix television series Arrested Development (2003–2006; 2013–present), and as Gertie Michaels in the 2015 horror-comedy film The Final Girls. She has also guest starred as Frances Cleveland, Virginia Hall, and Alexander Hamilton on Comedy Central‘s Drunk History. She currently plays Dory Stewart in the TBS black comedy series Search Party.

Personal life[edit]

Shawkat was born in Riverside, California, to Dina (née Burke) and actor Tony Shawkat, who owned a strip club in a neighbouring city. She grew up in nearby Palm Springs.[2] She has two brothers.[3] The actor Paul Burke was her maternal grandfather. Shawkat’s father is Arab[4] Iraqi, from Baghdad.[5] Her mother is of Norwegian, Irish, and Italian descent.[6] When she is not acting, she likes to paint; she has participated in gallery shows in Los Angeles, Mexico City and Paris. She also likes to make music and sing in jazz bars.[7]

Career[edit]

As Maeby Fünke, Shawkat was a regular cast member of Arrested Development for the entire run of the show from 2003 to 2013.[8] The series received nearly universally positive reviews, with Shawkat’s performance occasionally singled out for praise. Pop-culture commentator Brian M. Palmer remarked that she was “one of the brightest lights on a show populated solely by bright lights,”[9] and Scott Weinberg of eFilmCritic described her as “one funny young lady.”[10] In an interview with The A.V. Club in 2010, Shawkat remarked that many of her “formative moments” as an actress took place on the Arrested Development set: ” [Show creator] Mitch Hurwitz was like a father figure to me. In a way, it was great to be around [the cast], because I feel that my understanding of comedy was able to grow really well during that time.”[11]

In 2009, Shawkat appeared in Whip It co-star Har Mar Superstar‘s music video for “Tall Boy”, which also featured Eva Mendes and Eric Wareheim. In October 2009, it was announced that Shawkat, Har Mar, and fellow Whip It co-star Page would produce and write a show for HBO called Stitch N’ Bitch.[11] According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show “follows two painfully cool hipster girls as they relocate from Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood to Los Angeles’ Silver Lake enclave in hopes of becoming artists—of any kind.”[12]

Shawkat, along with Arrested Development co-star Mae Whitman, sang guest vocals on a number of tracks from indie-punk band Fake Problems‘ 2010 album Real Ghosts Caught on Tape.[13]

Six years after the series was canceled by Fox, filming for a revived fourth season of Arrested Development began on August 7, 2012 and Shawkat reprised her role as Maeby Fünke. The season consists of 15 new episodes which debuted at the same time on Netflix on May 26, 2013. Each episode focuses on one particular character, with Shawkat’s Maeby, now a high school senior, featured in episode 12, “Señoritis” and appearing in several other episodes of the season.

In 2015, Shawkat guest-starred on Broad City, portraying the romantic interest and look-alike of Ilana Glazer‘s character. Leading up to the episode, many had remarked on the physical similarities Shawkat and Glazer bear to one another.[14]

Shawkat currently stars on the TBS comedy Search Party, which premiered on November 21, 2016.[15]

Born Sharon Lorencia Horgan

Sharon Lorencia Horgan (born 13 July 1970)[1] is an Irish actress, writer, director, and producer, based in London. She is known for the comedy series Pulling and Catastrophe, both of which she starred in and co-wrote.

Pulling was nominated for two British Academy Television Awards, and won two British Comedy Awards. In 2016, she won the BAFTA Craft Award for Best Writer: Comedy, along with Rob Delaney, for Catastrophe. In July 2016, she was nominated for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series.

Early life[edit]

Horgan was born in Hackney, London,[2] to an Irish mother, Ursula (née Campbell), and a New Zealand father, John,[3] who ran a pub. When she was four years old, Horgan’s parents moved the family to Bellewstown, County Meath in Ireland, to run a turkey farm.[2][3][4][5]

One of five siblings,[2] in interviews Horgan has described her childhood as happy. She has also spoken fondly of growing up on the farm, where she helped with plucking the turkeys – “you pluck down, not up”, she once told an interviewer. Horgan later used her childhood experiences for the semi-autobiographical short film The Week Before Christmas for Sky Arts 1.[6] Horgan went to the Sacred Heart convent school in Drogheda, which she described in an interview with The Observer in December 2012 as an unhappy experience. “I didn’t enjoy it at all”, she said. [6]

Early career[edit]

In her early twenties, Horgan moved back to London and attended various drama courses. As a young actress struggling to make ends meet she took a series of odd-jobs, including working in call centres and waitressing. For nearly two years she earned her living selling bongs in a head shop in Camden, London.[6] At the age of 27, Horgan started a degree in English and American Studies at Brunel University in west London, graduating in 2000.[7] Around that time, Horgan met British writer Dennis Kelly, while they were both working in youth theatre, and they started writing together, producing material they then sent to the BBC, for which they won the BBC New Comedy Award in 2001[8] for Sketch Writing and Performance.[2][6][9]

Acting[edit]

Horgan has appeared on stage, television and screen. Her first credited appearances on television were in The State We’re In (2002) and Monkey Dust (2003), two sketch shows based on news and current affairs. She also contributed material to Monkey Dust. Her first named acting role on television was as Theresa O’Leary in Absolute Power (2003), a comedy set in the world of public relations and starring Stephen Fry. In 2005, she made her big-screen debut as Beth in Imagine Me & You, a British-American romantic comedy directed by Ol Parker.

Horgan made a cameo appearance in BBC’s Extras before appearing as a guest booker in two series of Rob Brydon’s Annually Retentive (2006–07), also on the BBC, a spoof comedy set behind the scenes of a chat show presented by Rob Brydon.[9] She won a British Comedy Award in 2007[10] for Best Female Newcomer for her performance.

In 2010, Horgan appeared in The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret. The US/UK comedy series was written by David Cross, who also appeared as the eponymous anti-hero, an incompetent American who takes a job leading the London sales team for an energy drink. Horgan played Alice Bell, the café owner on whom he developed a crush. After a three-year hiatus following the second series, IFC announced a third series would be broadcast in late 2015.[11]

In September 2011, Horgan appeared in the world premiere of Saul Rubinek‘s play Terrible Advice at the Menier Chocolate Factory in London. The play is a four-hander set in Los Angeles and she played Delila, one half of its two warring couples.[12]

In June 2012, Horgan was part of the ensemble cast for the pilot episode of Psychobitches,[13] shown as part of Sky Arts 1’s Playhouse Presents strand. In the sketch show, famous women from history are psychoanalysed by Rebecca Front‘s therapist; Horgan played the novelist Jane Austen in the pilot, and later characters included Eva Peron, Cleopatra, Boudicca and Carmen Miranda. Two series of Psychobitches followed; the first was shown in May 2013, and the second in November 2014. No announcement has yet been made for a third series.[citation needed]

Also, Horgan has done voice characters in the film Valiant (2005),[14] CBBC’s Big Babies (2010) and the short film Miss Remarkable & Her Career (2010). She has made guest appearances in series including Moone Boy (2015), Crackanory and on panel shows including So Wrong It’s Right and We Need Answers. In May 2015, she appeared as Elaine in Man Up, a romantic comedy written by Tess Morris, starring Simon Pegg and directed by Ben Palmer.[15] In 2017, Horgan provided the voice of Minerva Mertens (the long-lost mother of the protagonist, Finn the Human) in the Cartoon Network animated series Adventure Time.[16]

Writer[edit]

Horgan’s career breakthrough was Pulling, which she co-wrote with Dennis Kelly and starred in. She played Donna, an irresponsible marketing manager who calls off her wedding at the last minute, and one of three women sharing a flat in Penge, south London. It was noted for its broad humour about sex and the consumption of alcohol. Pulling was first shown on BBC Three in 2006, then repeated on BBC Two in 2008. The six-episode series became a ‘sleeper hit’, which gained iconic status with fans and was lauded by critics.[17] A second series of six episodes ran March–April 2008 on BBC Three.[18]

Despite good ratings and critical plaudits, Pulling was cancelled after two series,[19] although an hour-long final episode was broadcast in May 2009. In 2007, the show was nominated for a British Academy Television Award and Horgan was nominated for a British Comedy Award. In 2008 she won a British Comedy Award for Pulling. In 2009, she was nominated for a British Academy Television Award and the show won a British Comedy Award.[20]

In 2007, Horgan wrote Angelo’s[21] directed by Chloe Thomas. Horgan starred as Karen, a police officer. The sitcom was set in a café near Trafalgar Square in London. It ran for one series on Channel 5.[21]

In June 2012, Horgan starred in Dead Boss,[22] a sitcom set in a prison, which she wrote with comic Holly Walsh. In it she played Helen,[23] a woman wrongly imprisoned for killing her boss, and starred Jennifer Saunders. It was well received by critics and ran for one six-part series on BBC Three in June–July 2012. In 2013, Horgan starred in and co-wrote Bad Management with Holly Walsh, their second project together, and Horgan was the self-centred and demanding boss of an upmarket store in Los Angeles. ABC commissioned the pilot episode, which was not aired. But it was released online in December 2013.[24]

In January 2015, she co-starred and co-wrote the sitcom Catastrophe with American comic Rob Delaney.[25] The two first met on Twitter, and because they made each other laugh decided to work together. They have both said Catastrophe was broadly based on their own personal experiences.[26] In it she played Sharon, an Irishwoman living in London who falls pregnant by Rob, an American she met while he was on a business trip to London. Carrie Fisher played his mother. It was an instant critical success[27] and after the second episode of the six-part series was aired Channel 4 announced it had commissioned a second series. Horgan was nominated for a Best Female Comedy Performance BAFTA for her role.[28] in 2016, Channel 4, ordered a third and fourth season.[29]

Horgan has written Divorce,[30][25] a US comedy series starring Sarah Jessica Parker, who plays a New York woman going through a lengthy divorce. In April 2015, HBO announced it had picked up the series after the pilot episode, and the show is Parker’s first major acting commitment since Sex and the City. She is also an executive producer.[30]

Director[edit]

In December 2012, Horgan made her directorial debut with the semi-autobiographical film The Week Before Christmas, which was broadcast as part of the Little Crackers[6] series of short films on Sky 1. It was set on a turkey farm in Ireland, and in it she played her own mother, while her father was played by actor Conleth Hill. In September 2013, it was announced that Horgan was attached to the film Meet Me in Ten Years, a futuristic comedy written by Frances Poletti.[31]

Presenter[edit]

In February 2005, Horgan co-presented the first series of The Friday Night Project (later The Sunday Night Project), a comedy variety show on Channel 4. Her co-presenters in the eight-week series were Jimmy Carr, Rob Rouse, and Lucy Montgomery. On 3 June 2011, Horgan was the guest host of Have I Got News for You on BBC1. A scripted joke about Mecca and suicide bombers brought some complaints from Muslims; Horgan defended the show as “political satire”, but apologised for any offence caused.[32]

Horgan has presented a series of documentaries for Channel 4. In January 2012, in How to Be a Good Mother[33] she talked to several families about their approach to child-rearing. In January 2013 in Secrets of a Good Marriage[34] she discovered how various couples make their relationships work; and in On the Verge of a Midlife Crisis,[35] she spoke to six women who had coped with the experience.

Horgan appeared on the BBC Radio 4 show Chain Reaction in March and April 2015. One week she was interviewed by Olivia Colman and the following week she interviewed Dennis Kelly.[5]
