Caplan was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She is probably best known for her role as Miss Geist in the 1995 box office hit Clueless, which starred Alicia Silverstone. Caplan went on to Executive Produce and reprise the role of Miss Geist in the ABC TV series Clueless.
In 2007 Caplan produced the romantic comedy I Could Never Be Your Woman, also appearing in the film as Michelle Pfeiffer's costume designer, Sissy. The film marked her twenty-year acting reunion with Pfeiffer, who had played her best friend in Falling in Love Again.
In the 1989 box office hit Look Who's Talking, Caplan played the flirty best friend of Kirstie Alley, the female lead. She returned as Rona in the moderately successful first sequel Look Who's Talking Too (1990), with Elias Koteas as her love interest. She (and Koteas) declined to appear in the financially unsuccessful second sequel Look Who's Talking Now (1993).
Caplan played the Home Economics teacher in the television series Fast Times, with Courtney Thorne-Smith, Patrick Dempsey, and Wallace Langham. In A Night at the Roxbury (1998), Caplan played against Will Ferrell; she worked with Bonnie Hunt as the nosey neighbor duo living next door to Demi Moore and Judge Reinhold.
