WRITER/PRODUCER

 

Senta’s been in the business since she was a baby, kicking off her career with a diaper commercial showcasing her naked bottom. She’s done more than a hundred national commercials since, thankfully clothed. While attending the Chicago Academy of the Arts, Senta co-starred in the films, Home Alone and Home Alone 2, as Tracy McCallister. She's guest-starred/recurred on numerous TV shows including Faking It, Jane The Virgin, NCIS, Greek, Castle, and Everybody Loves Raymond. Her work as Phoebe on the Emmy award winning Beakman’s World is in syndication all over the world. Yup, she's dubbed into other languages! But still, most of Senta's fans know her from My So-Called Life, where she played Delia Fisher, the girl wronged by Brian Krakow. She might still be holding a grudge.
