The archetypal middle-American everygirl, Nebraskan actress Lindsey Shaw first reached viewers in the mid-2000s when the then-teenager signed for a lead role in the Nickelodeon series Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide. In that program -- a silly and goofy sitcom about a sixth grader's adventures at a new middle school -- Shaw played Mose, the lead character's one and only female friend and the object of affections from the local tough. That series folded after three seasons, and the actress went on to play high-schooler Claire Tolchuck, the popular older sister of awkward main character Justin (Dan Byrd), on the culture-clash comedy Aliens in America, which lasted just one season. That short-lived series led to another brief run on the small screen in 10 Things I Hate About You. After that, she appeared in a variety of projects including Devolved, Teen Spirit, and The Howling Reborn.
