Jenna has been in show business since she was three. This seasoned theater actor has starred in The King and I and — along with Glee co-star Lea Michele — recently finished a run in the Tony Award-winning Broadway production of Spring Awakening. She's appeared on the small screen in Sesame Street, Reading Rainbow (girl's a PBS vet!), and As the World Turns, and her film credits include Babyface and Educated. She also hosted Yankees on Deck, a behind-the-scenes sports show geared towards younger audiences. And as we've said before, it turns out that just about everyone needs an embarrassing soap opera credit in their past!

Random factoids: Jenna sang the National Anthem at a Knicks game at Madison Square Garden when she was 13, and she has known Glee co-star Lea Michele since they were eight years old.
