michelle trachtenberg

Born October 11, 1985
Michelle Christine Trachtenberg is an American television and film actress. She is perhaps best known for playing Dawn Summers in the television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer for the show's final three seasons, Penny in the 1999 film adaption of Inspector Gadget, and Harriet M. Welch in Harriet the Spy. Trachtenberg also plays Georgina Sparks in Gossip Girl, and she has recently appeared in the successful movie 17 Again, as Maggie.


Having turned 18 not too long ago, Michelle has passed the jailbait phase, so we can thankfully evaluate her sex appeal without any moral qualms. And the sex appeal is there, all right: anyone who saw her in a skimpy bikini in Eurotrip knows what we're talking about.

Michelle T
rachtenberg's sunny look and youthful verve are now gelling with her blooming womanhood, and her sexiness continues to develop as a result. But even though she's already thoughtful and mature, some may still think that Michelle needs a few more years to become a really sexy young woman.

Trachtenberg made her first television appearance at the age of three, in a commercial for Wisk Detergent. She went on to feature in over 100 more commercials. She appeared in her first credited role as Nona F. Mecklenberg in The Adventures of Pete & Pete from 1994 until 1996. During the same period she played Lily Montgomery in All My Children, in which she first worked with future Buffy star Sarah Michelle Gellar.

Trachtenberg's film career began in 1996 with the lead role in Harriet the Spy. She then returned to television for Meego, for which she won a Young Artist Award. She returned to film in 1999 for Inspector Gadget, as the gadget-master's niece, Penny. She also starred in the film Can't Be Heaven. In the summer of 2000, Trachtenberg took up the role of Dawn Summers in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. She remained in the role until the show ended in 2003. She also hosted Truth or Scare from 2001 to 2003. After Buffy and Truth or Scare, she returned to film in the comedy movie EuroTrip, co-starring Scott Mechlowicz, Jacob Pitts and Travis Wester and directed by Jeff Schaffer. She also had a recurring role in the HBO series Six Feet Under as Celeste, a spoiled pop star for whom Keith Charles served as a bodyguard.

In March 2005, Trachtenberg played the title character in Walt Disney Pictures' family comedy–drama Ice Princess with Kim Cattrall. In the film, Trachtenberg played a science whiz named Casey Carlyle who gives up her future academic life in order to pursue her newfound dream of being a professional figure skater.

In April 2006 Trachtenberg guest-starred in the the episode of House, M.D., "Safe". She revealed on the December 22, 2006, episode of Late Night With Conan O'Brien that House is her favorite show, she is friends with one of the producers and she asked to be a guest star. Trachtenberg also said she has a crush on Hugh Laurie, and during the scene in the elevator in which House searches her genital area for a tick, Trachtenberg said she played a joke on Laurie by putting a note between her legs that read "I ♥ You".

In November 2006, Trachtenberg guest-starred in the sixth season of the Emmy-nominated crime drama Law & Order: Criminal Intent. In the episode "Weeping Willow", she played the role of Willow, a kidnapped video blogger based on lonelygirl15. Trachtenberg also made a cameo in the Fall Out Boy music video for "This Ain't a Scene, It's an Arms Race" (with Buffy the Vampire Slayer costar Seth Green), Joaquin Phoenix-directed video "Tired of Being Sorry" for Balthazar Getty's band Ringside, and Trapt's video "Echo". She was recently cast as the female lead in an ABC comedy pilot called The Hill, set in Washington, D.C. Trachtenberg provided the voice of Tika Waylan for Dragonlance: Dragons of Autumn Twilight, a direct-to-video animated movie based on the novel of the same name.

Trachtenberg appeared on the CW hit show Gossip Girl as Georgina Sparks, who recently left rehab and brings back the dark past Serena van der Woodsen desperately wants to leave behind. She returned to the show for a multi-episode story arc towards the end of the second season. It is still up in the air whether she will return to the show as a full-time cast member for its third season.

Michelle Trachtenberg Quotes

"I can't resist buying shoes, bags, and lip gloss. I can never leave a shoppin
g experience without one of those"

"And I am really comfortable in this world. I love acting. I love the entertainment business...
I wouldn't trade it for anything."

"The only tantrum I have ever thrown was when I watched an annoying
girl doing a Barbie commercial on TV, and I screamed Mommy, I can do that better!""

"I get done whatever I get done and then I breathe a sigh of relief and I go to sleep and I wake up and start my morning bright and early with a big old smile."

"The real me is sitting at home, no makeup, in my old sweatpants, watching DVDs.But make-up is still a big thing for me."

"Keep your private life private. Be open to suggestions fr
om different people. And just be nice. I have heard stories about people who are just plain rude to the press or fans."

"When you grow up on film, people sometimes have difficulties accepting the fact that you are growing up. They always imagine you younger."

"Four months filming in a foreign country. You know, it is great because you get to learn all about different cultures. I feel so much more enriched."

e most important thing in my life. It's my first priority."

You know what? I love the episodes where you get all these like crazy people trying out. Cause you got to give it to them man, they've got some confidence, they really think they're good and hey that's great."

"The way to my heart is by being truthful and spontaneous"

My sister takes me out often to go shopping and to the movies. "
