Briga Heelan is an actress/comedian from Andover, Massachusetts.
Heelan initially thought she was going to be in musical theatre "all the way, from beginning to end, and then it started not to feel right after my first year at conservatory. It was like, 'I think there’s another route for me,' and then comedy just happened — and I’m so happy that it did!"
Heelan is currently playing the role of Jenny on the TBS series Ground Floor.
Heelan was able to shoot both Ground Floor and Undateable simultaneously, as both comedies are multi-camera, which require fewer production days than single-camera days. Although part of the ensemble of the show, Heelan is credited as being a recurring character on Undateable and appears in three episodes plus the pilot.
