With her comic wit and dramatic abilities, Jenn Lyon has the remarkable ability to shift between theater and TV roles with ease. Her versatility to take on characters from every walk of life and make them seem real is incredibly entertaining. From her role in the FX drama “Justified,” where she portrayed the love interest of the show’s leading character, Raylan Givens, to starring opposite Larry David in his hit Broadway comedy “Fish in the Dark,” Jenn’s talent is undeniable. Next up for Jenn… starring in TNT’s new comedic drama “Claws” opposite Niecy Nash.

Hailing from North Carolina, Jenn moved to New York City just three days after graduating from the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. She has since amounted an impressive resume with roles in shows such as  “Army Wives,” “Louie,” “Phil Spector,” “Justified” and a lead role on FX’s comedy “Saint George” playing George Lopez’ wife. If you ask Jenn though, it took her a while to find her groove in Hollywood – she was still selling pizzas in Central Park while filming “Justified.” Her theatre highlights include appearing on Broadway in the American premiere of Tom Stoppard’s trilogy, “The Coast of Utopia” (which earned 11 Tony Awards) and numerous Off-Broadway productions including A.R. Burney’s “The Wayside Motor Inn” and reuniting with Tim Olyphant (“Justified”) this past year in “Hold On To Me Darling.”

She’s a favorite among fans and critics, and has been applauded by many for her work.

Larry David

“Jenn Lyon is irresistible as the waitress who delivers funny but remarkably prescient social observations.”
