Nora Zehetner Biography

Home > Actresses > Z > Zehetner, Nora > Biography

Birth Name: Nora Zehetner
Born: 05/02/1981
Birth Place: El Paso, Texas, USA

Nora Zehetner's elfin charm and depth of intensity won her a wide range of guest roles on a host of well-known series. Her major recurring roles include superpowered agent Eden McCain on the science fiction favorite "Heroes" (NBC 2006-2010), spunky Dr. Reed Adamson in 'Grey's Anatomy' (ABC 2005- ) and Marc's inappropriately younger girlfriend Jen on "Maron" (IFC 2013-). Her film roles were lower-key, although she appeared in cult director Rian Johnson's acclaimed debut feature "Brick" (2005). Born in El Paso, Texas and raised between El Paso and Dallas, Zehetner originally studied at the Texas Academy of Mathematics and Science with an eye on studying math and science to a high level at the University of North Texas, when an advisor at the school suggested the best course for the teenage film obsessive would be to follow her acting dream in Los Angeles. Tiny early roles on "Gilmore Girls" (The WB, 2000-07) and in the raunchy hit sequel "American Pie 2" (2001) led to the proper launch of her career with "Brick," followed by a role in Johnson's fanciful follow-up "The Brothers Bloom" (2007) and a progressively larger succession of television roles.
