Some Facts
Raised by her mother and grandmother.
She has performed at the Heights Players in Brooklyn in Little Women (as Beth) and The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe as Lucy (alongside actor Tim Realbuto).
Requested that her character Abby Morgan be written out of Dawson's Creek (1998) as her boyfriend at the time was living in New York and she didn't like being in Wilmington, North Carolina, where the show filmed.
She took her grandmother to the Freddy vs. Jason (2003) premiere.
Monica auditioned for acceptance into LaGuardia High School of Performing Arts, made famous by Fame (1980) and its follow-up TV series Fame (1982). She was accepted into both the vocal and dramatic arts department, and chose drama.
Personal Quotes
Judy Garland is my favorite. I know all her songs and have seen all of her movies.

I had read the script, really liked it and was very impressed with Rob at our first meeting,I'm also really good friends with Vincent Kartheiser, who plays Vincent, and we had talked about how great it would be to work together. It's the first role I think I've ever been offered, so it was nice.

I worked with Jimmy DeBello and Vincent Kartheiser, and their real names are the same names they use in the movie. So, when we would all be filming a scene, sometimes they would call me Monica instead of my character's name and we would have to do the whole scene over.

I went to college so my parents would feel more secure about acting. It's a fallback. I have a degree if I wake up tomorrow and decide that acting just isn't my bag anymore. My dad really doesn't appreciate my acting too much. After Crime and Punishment in Suburbia I think he had come to the conclusion that Drama Camp every summer was actually a camp where I learned how to fake orgasms. But I'd rather fake orgasms than be working a 9-5 and coming home disgusted about my job.

If I won an Oscar I'd first thank my mother. She's always been the most supportive of me. She's been there for me my whole life.
