A Los Angeles native, Devin Sidell received her B.A. from Princeton University and immediately moved back to L.A. to pursue a career in film and television, appearing on such acclaimed shows as "Malcolm in the Middle," "The O.C.," and "Numb3rs" while simultaneously feeding her love for the stage. She won an L.A. Weekly Award for her performance in "Land of the Tigers" at Sacred Fools Theatre and was nominated for both LADCC and Ovation Awards for "The Behavior of Broadus," co-produced by Center Theatre Group. Devin has appeared in shows at the Kirk Douglas Theatre as well as on The Broad Stage opposite Josh Gad and Bryce Dallas Howard.
While attending Princeton, Devin trained in acting with New York director Roger Babb and NY Gorilla Rep Shakespeare Company’s Christopher Carter Sanderson. She also trained in modern dance with NY teachers Ze’eva Cohen and Dianne Sichel, taking a masterclass with Bill T. Jones. Since returning to Los Angeles, she has worked with Brian Reise, Risa Bramon Garcia, and Ani Avetyan.
In addition to recent appearances on "Ray Donovan" opposite Liev Schreiber, "Brooklyn Nine-Nine," and "NCIS," Devin appears in Rob Zombie’s horror film "31" (Official Selection, Sundance Film Festival) and recurs as a sketch performer on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" A carrier of the BRCA-1 gene mutation with a family history of ovarian and breast cancers, Devin decided in 2017 to undergo both a preventative double mastectomy and a preventative hysterectomy/oophorectomy, earning her the label of "previvor." She is currently working with "Dave Made A Maze" (Audience Award, Slamdance Film Festival) writer Steven Sears to create a dark comedy feature about her experience. She is a proud member of the Television Academy.
