Alia Martine Shawkat is an American actor and artist. She rose to fame with the role of Maeby Fünke in the Fox (and later Netflix) show Arrested Development. She can also be found on the TBS series Search Party and on a number of episodes of Drunk History. She also guest-starred on an episode of Broad City in which she played Ilana's love interest.

She is also an accomplished artist who has shown her work at galleries in L.A., Mexico City and Paris and has published a book of her drawings.[1]

In a 2017 interview with Out magazine, she talked about her bisexuality.

I was a tomboy growing up, and I remember my mom asking me when I was 10, "Are you attracted to boys or girls?" I said I don’t know. Now I consider myself bisexual, and I think balancing my male and female energies has been a big part of me growing as an actor.[2]
