Clea Lewis (born July 19, 1965) is an American actress, best known for her television role as Ellen's annoying friend Audrey Penney[1] in Ellen DeGeneres' sitcom Ellen.

Biography[edit]

Lewis was born in Cleveland Heights, Ohio to a writer mother and a former vaudeville performer and lawyer father.[2] Lewis graduated from Brown University in 1987. She and her husband, Peter Ackerman, have two sons, Stanley born in 2002 and Alvin born in 2005.

Career[edit]

Lewis has also appeared on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and Flying Blind. She also appeared in the first episode of Friends, in which she played Frannie. She has appeared in numerous films, including Scotch & Milk, The Rich Man's Wife, and Diabolique. In 2000 she did the voice of Amy Lawrence in Tom Sawyer. Lewis played Gina, a chatty ad agency worker, in 2007's Perfect Stranger. She also voiced various characters in the Nickelodeon cartoon SpongeBob SquarePants.

She also appeared on the short-lived Andy Barker, P.I. as Jenny Barker, the wife of the title character.

Her somewhat nasal, squeaky voice has meant a great deal of animation voice-over work for Lewis, including in both television (ABC's Saturday morning cartoon, Pepper Ann) and film (Ice Age: The Meltdown). She also recorded the book-on-CD for The Princess Diaries.
