Life and career[edit]

Lawson was born in Louisville, Kentucky, the daughter of Judy, a homemaker, and Mike Lawson, a hotel manager.[2] She attended Assumption High School, an All-Girls Catholic school. Early on, she co-hosted WDRB Fox 41 Kid's Club in Louisville. In 2000, she starred in Model Behavior, an ABC-TV movie featuring Justin Timberlake. She also made guest appearances on television series such as Smallville and Fear Itself. She was recently the star of a play called Greedy, directed by James Roday, which played for a few weekends in Los Angeles.[3]

She co-starred in the USA Network original series, Psych, as Detective Juliet O'Hara. She has been in a relationship with Psych co-star James Roday since 2006.

In 2011 she did a short skit called "A Date with Diana" for Funny or Die. In it she played Wonder Woman and went on a date with a fan.

On February 5, 2014 USA Network announced that Psych would finish its run on March 26 after 8 seasons.[4]

Lawson starred in the ABC sitcom Back In The Game, which was picked up for the 2013 fall season. She played Terry Gannon, a single mother and former college softball player who reluctantly agrees to coach her son's little league team.[5] On November 1, 2013, ABC canceled Back in the Game.[6] The tenth episode was aired on December 11, 2013.
