Profile: Gaby Hoffmann

Suggestions by Damien from Denver and Elyse from Encinitas, CA.


  1. What?! I'm shocked! I would have bet the farm on her being Jewish. The name, the look, New York connection, playing Jewish roles, etc. I've never bothered to Wikipedia her because I always thought it was a no-brainer. Shock. But thanks for clearing it up.

    1. I did know this. And I thought it interesting that on Transparent other than Jeffrey Tambor (well, formerly of the show now) and Judith Light, none of the principal actors playing Jewish characters were actually Jewish. But it's so well-cast you wouldn't know it.

  2. I am going to go out on a limb and say that at least one of you has family members who are die-hard Trump/GOP supporters to the tune of "Democrats just give our money to the Schwartzes!"
