Abbie Cobb can currently be seen in the recurring role of “Kimantha” on the popular ABC series, Suburgatory. She also co-stars in two upcoming feature films: Mom’s Night Out; from TriStar Pictures and the period drama, The Umbrella Man. Most recently, she starred in the ABC drama pilot, Warriors, expected to be picked up in The Fall which deals with a medical team that takes care of returning combat veterans. Prior to Suburgatory, Cobb had recurring roles on both CW’s 90210 and ABC Family’s The Secret Life of the American Teenager.
Cobb grew up in Nebraska as the youngest of three sisters. After obsessively watching Shirley Temple movies as a young child, she decided she’d love nothing more than to pursue acting as soon as she could. She performed in school plays and community theatre until she graduated, then moved out to LA.
She landed her first role on Disney’s Starstruck and continued working with Disney Channel on shows like Pair of Kings, Good Luck Charlie: It’s Christmas, Jonas LA, and Imagination Movers. She eventually moved on to guest star on other networks in shows like American Horror Story, NCIS:LA, Grey’s Anatomy, The Mentalist, and True Blood.
Cobb enjoys filling up her weeks with work in TV, film, or theatre, but she also knows how hard it is to break into acting in Los Angeles so she spends her spare time sharing what she has learned from the process. Mentoring and connecting one-on-one with aspiring actors is a big part of her life; it thrills her to help out newcomers and keep them from falling into the typical traps in Hollywood!
Cobb is a sought-after keynote speaker at acting conferences and workshops, where she shares her book, Stuck on a Ferris Wheel to inform and encourage actors.
