Occupation Actress, author
Years active 2009–present

Abbie Cobb is an American actress and author. She is best known for her recurring roles as Emily Bradford on 90210 and as Kimantha on Suburgatory.

Life and career[edit]

Abbie Cobb was born in Papillion, Nebraska.[1][better source needed] She became interested in acting after watching a Shirley Temple movie marathon in the third grade. She built her acting experience in high school before moving to Los Angeles to book a number of stage productions. While in Los Angeles, she starred in local productions of Othello, Spring Awakening and The Toxic Avenger.

In 2009, she received her first screen role as A.J. in the 2010 Disney Channel original film Starstruck. She also had small role in the 2009 film The Missing Person. Her other acting credits include The Mentalist, Jonas L.A., Medium, CSI: Miami, Pair of Kings, Imagination Movers, Big Time Rush, American Horror Story and the Disney Channel original film Good Luck Charlie, It's Christmas! (2011).

From 2011 to 2013, she had a recurring role as Emily Bradford on The CW series 90210. She almost did not land the role, because of her close resemblance to fellow 90210 actress Jennie Garth. Her hair was dyed a dark color so she would be less like Garth.[2]

In 2011, Cobb wrote her first book entitled Stuck on a Ferris Wheel, a guide book to assist up-and-coming actors.[3]

From 2012 to 2014, Cobb had a recurring role as Kimantha on the ABC sitcom Suburgatory.

After years of being told how much she looks like Jennie Garth when she was on Beverly Hills, 90210, it was announced in July 2015 that Cobb was cast to play Garth in the Lifetime movie The Unauthorized Beverly Hills, 90210 Story. It is scheduled to premiere on October 3.[4]
