Elizabeth Banks is an American actress, and was born on February 10, 1974 in Pittsfield, Massachusetts.

Banks first gained prominence for a memorable supporting role in the Judd Apatow comedy The 40-Year-Old Virgin in 2005. She made her mark on TV the next year with a recurring role as JD's love interest Dr. Kim Briggs on Scrubs.
