Becki Newton is an American actress, and was born on July 4, 1978 in New Haven, Connecticut. After getting her bachelor's in European History, Newton moved to New York, where she quickly found success appearing in commercials. Her first TV role was a guest spot in an episode of CBS' 'Cold Case' in 2003. She also booked a short stint on the soap opera 'Guiding Light' that same year. In 2004, Newton appeared in three episodes of NBC's 'American Dreams.' Following guest roles on 'Law & Order: SVU' and 'Charmed,' Newton got her big break as main cast member Amanda Tanen on the AMC hit comedy 'Ugly Betty.' The show ran for four successful seasons, before ending in 2010. In 2011, Newton appeared on the very shot-lived romantic anthology 'Love Bites,' before landing a recurring role as Barney's love interest Quinn in the penultimate season of 'How I Met Your Mother.' Becki could most recently be seen in FOX's well-reviewed but poorly rated one season sitcom 'The Goodwin Games.'
