Now that Arrested Development is defunct, shouldn't all that be in the past tense?

Yes it should be. I will change it. djej1 19:21, 15 July 2006 (UTC)

Name pronunciation[edit]

For some reason the IPA pronunciation of Alia's name keeps reappearing. I keep pointing out that it's incorrect (that is, not following English phonetics). It's also unsourced. Since the burden of editing is for inclusion of edits rather than omission, I'm removing the pronunciation guide and until someone can provide a source for the pronunciation I will consider any inclusion of it as vandalism. Thank you. AEuSoes1 19:51, 22 September 2006 (UTC)

If you think it is incorrect, then correct it, don't delete it. If you don't know how to correct it, then ask other editors for assistance, such as on the talk page. If you would like to ask for a source, add {{cn}} or {{fact}} following the item, or if you feel the fact itself is disputable, add {{verify source}}. You can also copy and paste the item to the talk page and ask for a source, noting this in the edit summary, if you have serious doubts about it. Good faith edits are not vandalism. -Shannernanner 09:08, 23 September 2006 (UTC)
I would correct it if I could, but I'm really not sure what Sburke had intended when he put that pronunciation. Sburke has repeatedly put bad pronunciations (although I think in good faith) throughout wikipedia and the only reason I found this page was because I was looking at his recent edits. With Wikipedia, the burden of proof is with those wishing to include not those wishing to exclude. Find a source. Heck even an audio clip of her name (like during an interview or something) would be fine. AEuSoes1 19:51, 23 September 2006 (UTC)
I understood the intended pronunciation. According to the Template:Fact page, unsourced information should only be immediately removed if it is "very doubtful and very harmful [bold in original]." For the record, I am aware that her first name is pronounced AL-ee-uh,[1] though I have not heard her last name pronounced. -Shannernanner 06:50, 24 September 2006 (UTC)
All right, thanks to Youtube, I've found it: straight from the horse's mouth. Ƶ§œš¹ [aɪm ˈfɻɛ̃ⁿdˡi] 03:31, 6 November 2006 (UTC)
For the record (in case it gets changed again), that was ˈæliə ˈʃoʊkɑːt. kwami (talk) 02:10, 25 November 2007 (UTC)


She also had a recurring role in The Starter Wife. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:04, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

She was also in the movie, Amreeka (2009)

The Arrested Development film as been officially announced according to many sources and the cast have all agreed to be involved in the project. Michael Cera's page has the film listed in his filmography, Alia is a part of this upcoming film. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:51, 28 June 2011 (UTC)


wow that photo of the back of her head is great and all but how about one where you can see her face-- (talk) 10:09, 17 February 2012 (UTC)

I agree that it's bad and I've contacted a professional photographer to ask her to release a photo of Shawkat for Wikipedia. Crossing fingers...--CyberGhostface (talk) 18:17, 22 June 2012 (UTC)

Personal life[edit]

I just saw an interview where she states her father is Iraqi, specifically from Baghdad - see 34:52 of Manning (talk) 09:12, 1 June 2013 (UTC)

Yeah. She's Iraqi on her father's side and Irish and Italian on her mother's side. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:35, 3 August 2013 (UTC)
