After living in New York for a while, Natasha and her family moved to Israel, but after their parents’ divorce she and her mother moved back to New York. She attended Ramaz School but was expelled after getting caught selling marijuana. She then attended Miami Country Day School, and lived independently from when she was 16 years old. Soon after, she started pursuing her acting career more seriously, and attended New York University for a while to study film and philosophy.

Prior to becoming an adult actress, Natasha was already signed to the Ford Modelling Agency. One of her first film opportunities came at “Pee-wee’s Playhouse”. She then took roles in “Dennis the Menace”, “Heartburn” and “A Man Called Sarge”. She was six years old during the time of these films.

Later on at the age of 16, she would be cast in the film “Everyone Says I Love You” which would lead to more acting opportunities. She then became part of the indie film “Slums of Beverly Hills”, and was soon cast for major film roles including “Scary Movie 2”, “Kate and Leopold” and “Blade:Trinity”. She also made a guest appearance in “Will and Grace” before becoming part of the “American Pie” films. She continued making films even while busy with theatre and television projects. Some of her most recent films include “Girl Most Likely”, “4:44 – Last Day on Earth” and “All About Evil”.

Lyonne’s stage debut came in a production of “Two Thousand Years” which was an award winning play. She was then a part of “Love, Loss, and What I Love” which was based on the book by Ileen Beckerman. She continued to receive good reviews and then acted in “Tigers Be Still”, and “Blood from Stone”. Her net worth was rising.

For television, Natasha has made guest appearances in many popular television series, such as “New Girl”, “Weeds” and “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”. Her current television series is from Netflix and it is entitled “Orange is the New Black”, in which she stars as the character Nicky Nichols, and which has brought her a Primetime Emmy nomination for her performance. This marks the first time that she has become a regular cast member of a television series.

For her personal life, it is known that Lyonne has had her share of legal problems. She was convicted for driving under the influence of alcohol in 2001 and 2002. She was also arrested after threatening her neighbor, which eventually led to her being evicted by her landlord. She’s also had a number of health problems – Lyonne was once hospitalized because of a collapsed lung, a heart infection and hepatitis C. She underwent open heart surgery to fix the heart infection damage, but recovered soon after. There is no public information on any relationships.

Quotes

#Quote
1[on performing her role as a cat-loving school teacher in G.B.F. (2013)'] If you're at all a reasonable human being when you're 34 years old, you don't read scripts looking at the children's parts. I don't really feel like I need to be a teenager ever again. It's really a miracle that I made it out alive. I'm doing all right being in my 30s - I think I'm hitting my sweet spot. I'm glad to have already come of age.
2I mean, I didn't have a 28-day drug problem. I had a take-five-years-off drug problem. [Because of] "my well-publicized drug problem, there was many years I couldn't get work...I mean, life is very short but life is also very long. I don't know that there's such a rush. I think I also needed a break just in terms of the child actor in me was tired. I mean, I'd been working from, like, 6 to 24, pretty much nonstop.
3I would have done well as a gypsy child, I think. A circus baby. I coulda played a great street urchin or ragamuffin. Or just been one. I certainly liked entertaining people and making jokes, but I don't know necessarily if that's what your child is prone to that you should necessarily put them in a real working industry at six years old. By the time I was 16, I was already an exhausted cynic.
4[re New York] I have a real love affair with the city. I just feel like when you're up or when you're down, the city really cushions you. I feel like I just have such the blood and bones of a New Yorker that I can almost imagine better, like, giving up the fight and not being able to afford the city and going out West, keeping a small place here, and then when I'm like 80, coming back here, living on the park and going to the theater. For the matinee.
5My life is very much in the present today. And that's what theater is all about.
