Suzanne Rossell Cryer (born January 13, 1967) is an American actress known for her role as Ashley on the ABC sitcom Two Guys and a Girl, and for her performances on Broadway.

Biography[edit]

Early life[edit]

Cryer was born in Rochester, New York. She graduated from Greenwich High School in Greenwich, Connecticut and then attended Yale University where she attained a degree in English Literature. She then went on to study for a Masters Degree from the Yale School of Drama.[1] During this time she spent a summer performing at the Utah Shakespeare Festival where her roles included Rosalind in "As You Like It", and Anne in "Richard III".[2]

Career[edit]

After graduation, she appeared at Hartford Stage in The Rivals, Baltimore Center Stage in "Don Juan" and began making guest appearances on television series. She won critical acclaim for her performance in the premiere of Donald Margulies' two-person play Collected Stories at Southcoast Repertory Theater.

She then went on to film Wag the Dog while simultaneously performing in the West coast premiere of Arcadia at the Mark Taper Forum. Her next major role was that of Josie in Neil Simon's Proposals which began at the Ahmanson Theater in Los Angeles and then toured the country before arriving on Broadway at the Broadhurst Theater.

In 1997, Cryer made a guest appearance on an episode of Seinfeld in the episode "The Yada Yada". She played George's girlfriend, who frequently made use of the term "yada yada yada". Cryer's character, Marcy, is also partial to its usage - charming George in the process.[3]

In 1999 she joined the cast of the ABC sitcom Two Guys and a Girl (the show's second season) as Ashley, a love interest for Berg (Ryan Reynolds). She became a series regular and remained with the show until it ended in 2001.

She made two appearances on Frasier as Roz's sister.

In recent years she returned to theater to play Tracy Lord in The Philadelphia Story at Hartford Stage and appeared in Chris Shin's play What Didn't Happen at Playwright's Horizon.

She has also made appearances in the television series Dexter, CSI: Miami, Shark, Bones, Grey's Anatomy, and Desperate Housewives.
