Previously, Brandt starred in the independent features Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life, Shelf Life and Memphis Bound…and Gagged and Confidence, which Variety called a “whip smart” film that “taps into a fresh source for American comedy.”
She is currently known for her role as Marie Schrader in Breaking Bad and as Annie Henry on The Michael J. Fox Show.
