Community starer Gillian Jacobs, beautiful, talented. Before talking about her role in Community, first let us take some time to know her a bit more closely.
Gillian grew up in the suburbs of Pennsylvania, she was born in 20th October 1982 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She started her acting journey in the Pittsburgh Public Theatre. After her high school graduation, she moved to New York, she joined the Julliard School to study on acting.

The one role that really brought her stardom is the role she has been playing since 2009 on NBC’s comedy TV series Community. Community’s story is of a Lawyer who is forced to go to a local community college. Now let’s talk about Gillian’s role in Community Gillian Jacobs stars as Britta Perry, so Britta Perry is 28 socially empathetic, outspoken and politically interested. Britta dropped herself out of high school and started vandalizing billboard of her local area. While her vandalizing spree she made friends with other vandals, together the formed “The Anarchist Billboard Vandals”. When the group got quiet large she was voted out of the group, the group believed in democracy and hence the voting system. After getting voted out of the group she joined Peace Corps, got teargassed at World Trade Rally, did some foot modelling and took a vacation in Africa. After that she came to realize that she needs to do something with her life, so she went on and got her GED and then got admitted in Greendale . In season three of the tv series Britta (Gillian) breaks out to her study group that she has decided to do her major on Psychology, the group is rather skeptical about this very subject. She is usually the voice of the group but she is often mocked for her rigid moral code, East Coast sensibilities, for her strange pronunciation of bagel and for being a vegetarian. The group also thinks that she has a very low sense of humor and for that she is referred to as “buzzkill”, but she has managed to increase her humor as the show progressed. In season two she fell in severe financial crisis, so she started working as a waitress at a rundown diner, she does not get any tips and her boss hates her, and eventually the inevitable happens and she gets fired from her workplace. At first she was portrayed herself as unromantic towards Jeff, but at one episode she shows that she might have some feelings for him, and later on it is shown that she finally admits her affection towards Jeff, which she later on denied as being a result of compulsive competition with Professor Slater. This denial gave her more popularity, when she got in second year of her college, as a fearless person.
