  Biography  

 life and career
Cohn was born in Los Angeles, California. She was discovered by actress Charlotte Rae when Rae and other producers of The Facts of Life visited Westlake School in Bel Air, California, while doing research for the show.
Cohn was cast in the role of Natalie and portrayed the character for the entire run of the series, from 1979 to 1988, as well in the reunion movie of 2001. The impact of her work on The Facts of Life was honored when she was ranked 43 on VH1's List of 100 Greatest Kids Stars. She also had a lot of fun working with series' lead, Charlotte Rae, for 7 of 9 seasons, both on- and off-camera. As of 2011, Cohn continues to keep in touch with the beloved TV star.

Cohn has continued with her acting career outside of The Facts of Life. In 1986, she appeared in The Boy Who Could Fly playing the part of 'Geneva'. She also had guest appearances in other popular TV shows such as in Charles In Charge in the episode "Bottle Baby" playing Buddy's sister Bunny, a young alcoholic, in 1988, as well as two guest appearances in the second season of the cop drama 21 Jump Street, in the episodes "Christmas In Saigon" in 1987 and "Chapel of Love" in 1988 playing Rosa.

In 2003 she was nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award for her work on the TV show What's New Scooby Doo?, where she did the voice of Velma Dinkley. She also reprised her role of Velma on Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated along with several Scooby Doo movies.

She also received a positive notice from Variety in her role in the 2007 Daniel Waters directed comedy film Sex and Death 101.

Cohn said that one of the reasons she did The Facts of Life Reunion film in 2001 was because she claims that the actors in the long-running series have been wrongly denied a cut of the syndication and DVD profits from the series. "We all never got paid and still don't get paid for DVDs and reruns ... we felt we were owed."

In 2010, she played the role of Violet, the leading character in Casper Andreas' movie Violet Tendencies.

On October 29, 2010, she appeared on the Season 8 premiere of TLC's What Not to Wear.

On July 13, 2011, she appeared in an episode of Hot in Cleveland.

In addition to her acting career, she has earned a degree in cultural anthropology from Loyola Marymount University and is a founding member of the weSpark cancer support center.
