Janie Haddad Tompkins is an actress that specializes in emotional realism grounded in a balance of humor and drama.

In addition to her on-camera work, Janie performs VO from time to time and voices the character of Margaret on Cartoon Network’s Emmy-Winning (and frequently nominated), REGULAR SHOW.

Janie was born in West Virginia and raised in Charleston, SC. She grew up between the two Charlestons and her family expanded exponentially when her mom and dad happily remarried spouses with existing families.

It was pretty crazy and cool to have four parents, one brother and three stepbrothers. Now they’re all married, some with kids, so get togethers are fun and rowdy. Add that to the giant Lebanese side of her family, and Janie has a family tree that could fill a forest.

She trained classically at SMU in Dallas, obtaining her MFA in Acting, after being awarded a full artistic scholarship. She then moved to New York City to pursue a career in the theatre, but, being a New Yorker during the 9/11 attacks, caused her to reevaluate every decision. Television was really her obsession, so she headed to Los Angeles in November 2001 to pursue an on-camera career since life is short (even though careers are long).

Janie is married to comedian Paul F. Tompkins; they love traveling to SC — so the duo plan to keep cultivating a bicoastal lifestyle between Janie’s hometown of Charleston, SC and adopted home of Atwater Village in L.A.

Cooking, reading, obsessively following politics and writing are her current hobbies. She just completed her first, half-hour, single-camera spec pilot. Other interests include: true crime (she’d love to discuss that twelve part Manson Family podcast with you), worrying about current events and hoping to contribute to the world in small collective actions of meaningful good will that add up to something larger and purposeful.

She also coaches actors and is, basically, a Comedy Nerd. Most recently, Janie can be seen in episodes of Brooklyn Nine-Nine (Fox), With Bob & David (Netflix) and recurring on House of Lies (Showtime) and Comedy Bang! Bang! (IFC).
