A Los Angeles native, Devin Sidell received her B.A. from Princeton University and immediately moved back to L.A. to pursue a career in film and television, appearing on such acclaimed shows as "Malcolm in the Middle," "The O.C.," and "Numb3rs" while simultaneously feeding her love for the stage. She won an L.A.

While attending Princeton, Devin trained in acting with New York director Roger Babb and NY Gorilla Rep Shakespeare Company's Christopher Carter Sanderson.

A carrier of the BRCA-1 gene mutation with a family history of ovarian and breast cancers, Devin decided in 2017 to undergo both a preventative double mastectomy and a preventative hysterectomy/oophorectomy, earning her the label of "previvor."
