Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A remarkably prolific actress on television series in America and her native Canada, Brooke D'Orsay juggled simultaneous assignments on several popular series, including "Drop Dead Diva" (Lifetime 2009-14), "Royal Pains" (USA Network 2009-16) and "Two and a Half Men" (CBS 2003-15). The Toronto, Ontario native began appearing on Canadian television in the early 2000s, working regularly as a guest performer while also providing a voice for the long-running animated series "6Teen" (Teletoon/Nickelodeon/Cartoon Network/PopGirl/ABC3 2004-2010). D'Orsay soon settled into an exceptionally busy schedule of guest roles on American programming, including "Gary Unmarried" (CBS 2008-2010), and a stint as the spokesperson for Nestea. By 2011, she was dividing her time between three programs: "Diva," "Royal Pains" and "Two and a Half Men," all of which underscored her status as a valuable player on the small screen comedy scene. Born February 17, 1982 in Brampton, Ontario, Canada, Brooke D'Orsay began her acting career with the online comedy group Trailervision, which created parodies of theatrical coming attractions. She later made her feature film debut with the group in the comedy "Why Can't I Be a Movie Star?"...

A remarkably prolific actress on television series in America and her native Canada, Brooke D'Orsay juggled simultaneous assignments on several popular series, including "Drop Dead Diva" (Lifetime 2009-14), "Royal Pains" (USA Network 2009-16) and "Two and a Half Men" (CBS 2003-15). The Toronto, Ontario native began appearing on Canadian television in the early 2000s, working regularly as a guest performer while also providing a voice for the long-running animated series "6Teen" (Teletoon/Nickelodeon/Cartoon Network/PopGirl/ABC3 2004-2010). D'Orsay soon settled into an exceptionally busy schedule of guest roles on American programming, including "Gary Unmarried" (CBS 2008-2010), and a stint as the spokesperson for Nestea. By 2011, she was dividing her time between three programs: "Diva," "Royal Pains" and "Two and a Half Men," all of which underscored her status as a valuable player on the small screen comedy scene.

Born February 17, 1982 in Brampton, Ontario, Canada, Brooke D'Orsay began her acting career with the online comedy group Trailervision, which created parodies of theatrical coming attractions. She later made her feature film debut with the group in the comedy "Why Can't I Be a Movie Star?" (2001). D'Orsay quickly progressed to supporting roles in Canadian content and American projects lensed there, including guest spots on "Soul Food" (Showtime 2000-2004) and the cult favorite film "Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle" (2004). That same year, she began a six-year run on the award-winning animated series "6teen," which followed the lives of six Canadian teenagers working in a giant suburban shopping mall. While providing the voice for one of the series' main characters, the relentlessly peppy Caitlin Cooke, D'Orsay also appeared in numerous live-action series, including the popular small-town Canadian sitcom "Corner Gas" (CTV 2004-2009), and was a regular on the short-lived comedy "Happy Hour" (2006) for Fox in the States. American audiences also saw her on a semi-regular basis performing the "Nestea Plunge" in a string of television commercials for the venerable beverage company.

By 2007, D'Orsay was working steadily in American network television, which included guest roles on producer Chuck Lorre's "Two and a Half Men" and "The Big Bang Theory" (CBS 2007- ). From 2009 to 2010, she was a series regular on the CBS comedy "Gary Unmarried," playing the manager of a radio station that employed star Jay Mohr in the show's second season, while also enjoying a recurring role on "Drop Dead Diva" as the self-centered model whose spirit is reincarnated in the body of an earnest, plus-sized lawyer (Brooke Elliott). D'Orsay later joined the USA Network comedy "Royal Pains" in its fourth season, playing the pampered Paige Collins, who hired Paulo Costanzo's Evan Lawson to pose as her boyfriend while pursuing a relationship with a much older man. The pair later blossomed into a real romance, which culminated in their marriage. In typical fashion, D'Orsay balanced this work with a recurring role as Ashton Kutcher's love interest on the revamped "Two and a Half Men" from 2010 through 2013.
