Biography

Gillian MacLaren Jacobs (; born October 19, 1982) is an American actress. She is best known for her roles as Britta Perry on the NBC comedy series Community (2009–2015) and Mickey Dobbs on the Netflix romantic comedy series Love (2016–2018). She had a recurring role as Mimi-Rose Howard on the fourth season of the HBO comedy-drama series Girls (2012–2017) and has appeared in films such as Life Partners (2014), Hot Tub Time Machine 2 (2015), Don't Think Twice (2016), Brother Nature (2016), Life of the Party (2018), Ibiza (2018), and I Used to Go Here (2020).

Personal Life

Jacobs is a teetotaler, having said that she made a choice while she was young to never drink alcohol or take drugs, after "watching people in my family grapple with addiction". She revealed that her father was an addict and that she became fearful of ruining her life the same way, a feeling reinforced in her youth by reading Go Ask Alice, a cautionary tale about a 15-year-old drug addict.

Early Life

Gillian MacLaren Jacobs was born on October 19, 1982, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Her mother, Martina Magenau Jacobs, works in alumni relations at Carnegie Mellon University, while her father, William F. Jacobs Jr., was an investment banker. Her father passed away in 2013. She was raised by her mother in Mt. Lebanon, Pennsylvania. Her family owned the Erie Brewing Company (not to be confused with the later brewery of the same name), where her grandfather, John Martin Magenau Jr., served as president and CEO until it closed in 1978.Jacobs began studying acting at the age of four, and attended weekend acting classes at the Pittsburgh Playhouse while growing up. She performed with the Pittsburgh Public Theater, where she was a perennial contender in the Public's Shakespeare Monologue Contest, leading her to be cast as Titania in its production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. After graduating from Mt. Lebanon High School in 2000, she moved to New York City to attend the Juilliard School, where she graduated with a BFA in 2004.
