Actress. Born May 20, 1966, in Los Angeles, California. Actress Charlotte Rae discovered Cohn at the age of 13, when she and several producers of the show The Facts of Life visited Westlake School in North Hollywood, California. The show focused on the lives of four boarding school girls who, each week, faced new life lessons. Cohn was subsequently cast as the sweet and sarcastic Natalie Greene.
Cohn portrayed Greene from 1979 to the series' end in 1988. During that time, Cohn was nominated for three Young Artist Awards. She also appeared with several big-name co-stars including Molly Ringwald, Cloris Leachman, and even George Clooney, who was cast as a handyman for one season.
After the show ended, Cohn went to college at Loyola Marymount University, where she graduated with a degree in Anthropology. She also took acting classes, and did some theater in New York. She made a few guest appearances on shows such as Dream On and Suddenly Susan. Cohn struggled to gain larger roles, but her success after Facts of Life was limited.
More recently, however, Cohn has made her mark as a voiceover actress for such animated shows as Dexter's Laboratory and Kim Possible. In 2003, her voice work on the show What's New, Scooby Doo? earned her a nomination for a Daytime Emmy. She continues to do voicework for the successful Scooby Doo series as the voice of Velma Dinkley.
