Cynical, stubborn, and fundamentally dishonest, “Gretchen” (Aya Cash) manages to defy expectations with everything she does. Gretchen handles PR for some of the biggest and most difficult music acts in town, so she knows how to hold her own.
She's never been in a real relationship and is perfectly happy with that, so when she meets Jimmy and finds herself falling for him, her whole world-view is turned on its head. Gretchen never ceases to surprise Jimmy, who finds himself quickly succumbing to her charming abrasiveness. She may be the only person in the world who's suited to handle, and possibly fall in love with, Jimmy.
Aya Cash has received rave reviews for her performance in You’re the Worst, including Critics’ Choice Award and TCA Award nominations. Additionally, Cash was most recently seen in the eclectic, star-studded cast of Joe Swanberg’s Netflix anthology series Easy, about love, sex, technology and culture, to which she will return for Season 2.
Cash’s additional television credits include a leading role in the FOX comedy series Traffic Light, as well as recurring roles on The Newsroom and We Are Men, and guest-starring roles on Modern Family, Sirens, The Good Wife, Mercy, A Gifted Man, Law and Order (the whole triptych) and Brotherhood.
On the film side, Cash recently wrapped production on the Netflix action-comedy, Game Over, Man!, starring Workaholics co-creators Adam Devine, Anders Holm and Blake Anderson and produced by Seth Rogen and Scott Rudin. Additionally, she has completed work on the dark comedy Mary Goes Round; the indie dark romantic comedy F*cking People, with Noel Wells and Josh Radnor; the indie film Brand New Old Love; and Village People, directed by Paul Briganti. Cash’s additional film credits include Martin Scorsese’s Oscar®-nominated film The Wolf of Wall Street, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, as well as Mike Birbiglia's Sleepwalk with Me, The Oranges and Loitering with Intent, among others.
Cash’s theatre credits include starring roles in off-Broadway plays at playhouses such as Playwrights Horizons, The Atlantic, MCC, Manhattan Theatre Club and the Rattlestick, to name a few.
