Her parents are Marine Biologists and she inherited their intelligence and inquisitiveness. She aces all her classes which leaves her lots of time to "experiment" with Shaggy, and to solve mysteries, which is her great love. She wants to know what is at the bottom of everything! She values Fred for his ability to devise traps for the "ghosts," though she wishes Shag and Scooby would stop getting caught in them (even if they do always seem to catch the culprit anyway.) She likes Daphne, even if she does always manage to find the secret trapdoors the hard way. She is extremely nearsighted.

Linda Cardellini

Vital Stats:
Birth Name:

Birth Place: Redwood City, California
Nationality: American

Dark-haired Linda Cardellini racked up acting credits with parts in film and television before landing a breakthrough role as an honor student in the midst of an identity crisis on NBC's acclaimed high school drama "Freaks and Geeks" (1999-2000). The attractive and talented actress came across as strong-willed, smart and sassy on screen, separating her from the sea of homogenized young adult performers inundating film and television in the late 1990s.

      Cardellini made her series regular debut on the ABC Saturday morning live-action children's series "Bone Chillers" during the 1996-1997 season, and was additionally featured in 1997 episodes of "Clueless" (UPN), "Step by Step" (CBS), "Pacific Palisades" and "3rd Rock From the Sun" (both NBC).
