Robyn Cohen is an American actress best known for her role as the often topless script girl in Wes Anderson's The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou.
Cohen earned her B.F.A. in dance from the Juilliard School in 1998. After roles in several musicals on the East Coast, she moved to Los Angeles, California in search of film and television roles.
Once in L.A. she appeared in episodes of Angel and LAX. In addition to her role in The Life Aquatic, she was seen in Fool's Gold, a low-budget independent film starring James Franco, and in the 2006 screen adaptation of The Celestine Prophecy.
She has also continued her theatre work, playing the female lead in Modern Dance for Beginners at the Victory Theatre Center, and in the off-Broadway production of The Exonerated starring Jeff Goldblum. She also appeared in an Los Angeles Opera production of Rigoletto, staged at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. She played the Kit Kat Girl in a national touring company of a revival of Cabaret.
She worked again with Wes Anderson as a hamster in the 2005 Dasani water television commercials.
In December 2012, she was awarded over $17 million in a lawsuit against Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling after losing most of her belongings in an apartment fire at a West Hollywood building owned by Mr. Sterling. This award was later overturned by a judge on appeal.
