Show Notes

Mindy Cohn is the host of the Mondays with Mindy Podcast. She is a well know television, film, and voice actress, who appeared on VH1's list of "100 Greatest Kid Stars".  She starred as Natalie Green in the sitcom The Facts of Life from 1979 to 1988, and for voicing Velma Dinkley in the Scooby-Doo franchise from 2002 to 2015. Actress Charlotte Rae (Mrs. Garrett) discovered Cohn and also named her character Natalie on The Facts of Life (1979). Rae met Cohn after she and the show's producers noticed her entertaining a group of friends at Harvard-Westlake School in Los Angeles, where they had gone to research and observe.  Cohn has continued her acting career outside of The Facts of Life. In 1984 she had a leading role as the daughter alongside Stockard Channing in RKO's video production of "Table Settings". In 1986, she appeared in The Boy Who Could Fly as next-door neighbor Geneva. She also had guest appearances in other popular TV shows, including Charles in Charge (playing Buddy's sister Bunny, a young alcoholic, in the 1988 episode "Bottle Baby"), and two guest appearances in the second season of the cop drama 21 Jump Street (playing Rosa in the 1987 episode "Christmas In Saigon" and the 1988 episode "Chapel of Love"). In 2004 Cohn appeared in the WB comedy The Help. In 2010, Cohn played the role of Violet, the leading character in Casper Andreas's movie Violet Tendencies, and appeared on the Season 8 premiere of TLC's What Not to Wear on October 29, 2010. She appeared in an episode of Hot in Cleveland on July 13, 2011, on The Secret Life of the American Teenager on March 26, 2012, and in The Middle on May 21, 2014. Cohn reprised her Velma Dinkley role in Lego Dimensions.
