Tiya Sircar (born May 16, 1982) is an American actress. She portrayed Sabine Wren in Disney XD's Star Wars Rebels (2014–2018) and Rooni Schuman in ABC's Alex, Inc. (2018). She had a minor role in The Internship (2013) and a recurring role as Vicky in The Good Place (2016–2020).
Early life and education
Sircar attended the University of Texas at Austin. During her time in university, she interned at BLVD talent agency in Austin, which would go on to act as her first talent agency. The summer before her senior year, she was a tour guide in Rome. Sircar graduated with a BBA in Business/Marketing and a bachelor's in Theater & Dance. After graduation, she worked in sales at Dell before moving to Los Angeles to pursue her acting career.
Sircar's television appearances include Master of None, House MD, Hannah Montana, Greek, Moonlight, Numbers, Privileged, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, and she has played recurring characters on The Suite Life on Deck and The Good Place. In 2008, she played a Mac Genius as part of Apple's national ad campaign. The following year, she voiced an animated character for the Disney show Phineas & Ferb. She was cast in New Line Cinema's 17 Again as "Samantha"–a high school senior with a crush on the lead character played by Zac Efron.
Sircar also appeared in the 2013 theatrical release The Internship, comedy also starring Vince Vaughn, Owen Wilson, and Rose Byrne. Sircar has stated that she'd often get casted as ethnically ambiguous characters because she's not "Indian enough".
Sircar's voice acting for animation include the feature film Walking with Dinosaurs 3D and the television series Star Wars Rebels, which began airing on Disney XD in October 2014. Sircar provides the voice of Sabine Wren, a Mandalorian graffiti artist and explosives expert.
