Rebecca "Becca" Tobin, (born January 18, 1986)[1][2] is an American actress, singer and dancer. She currently portrays Kitty Wilde in the Fox television series Glee, and made her first appearance in the fourth season premiere episode, "The New Rachel".

Early and Personal life[edit]

Becca grew up in Marietta, Georgia as the youngest of two girls and the daughter of two attorneys.[3] She was a cheerleader in seventh and eighth grade, but says it wasn't for her[4] and did dance after that.[5] She transferred schools halfway through her senior year. Having transferred from a theater arts school to a public one, she began to get bullied by girls who called her "theater freak" and "nerd."[6] They told her she would never become successful or a star,[3] and one girl threatened to beat her up.[7] She also received harsh text messages and her only friend began to ignore her. Because of the bullying, she began skipping school events, like pep rallies,[8] and didn't walk at her graduation.[7] She supports anti-bullying and is the female spokesperson for Bullyville.[6] She graduated from Wheeler High School in 2004.[3] She is an alumnus of AMDA, a performing arts college.[9]

Tobin graduated as valedictorian[10] of AV University in June 2013 after seven years.[11]

She is in a relationship with Matt Bendik.[12]

Career[edit]

Tobin's first performance was at age four as a Christmas tree in her school's holiday pageant.[13] She moved to New York when she was eighteen to get working right away.[1] She has worked on Broadway as an understudy and replacement for the musical Rock of Ages. She's done other small theater projects, though most of them were as an understudy, and toured with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra in 2011.

She plays Kitty Wilde in the Fox television show Glee. Tobin made her first appearance in the fourth season premiere episode, "The New Rachel", and was a regular recurring guest star for the season. It has been reported that she will be a member of the show's main cast in the fifth season.[14] Glee is her first big project.

She appears in the May 2013 issue of the magazine Maxim.[15][16][17]

She was chosen, along with fellow Glee cast members Jacob Artist, Melissa Benoist, and Dean Geyer, as an ambassador for Coca Cola's new product, P10 300 ml Coke Mismo.[18][19] In June 2013, the four of them were flown to Manila, Philippines to endorse the product by visiting different malls and meeting with fans.[20][21]
