Why we love Dianna Agron
If you're thinking that Dianna Agron's surname is a bit weird, that's because it was changed by Ellis Island officials back in the day when her father's Russian family emigrated to the great US of A. If it weren't for early 20th Century xenophobia in America, she'd be called Dianna Agronsky instead, which makes more sense but is, admittedly, a bit less memorable.
Dianna's role as cheerleader Quinn Fabray on honestly-we-never-watch-it-it's-just-on-in-the-background Glee had a basis in truth – she's been dancing since she was three years-old. Well. Not literally – her feet would’ve come off, surely – but she's certainly been active since the age of three, and started teaching dance lessons as a teenager at high school.
Her film debut was in When A Stranger Calls, a slasher flick, in which she also played a cheerleader - elsewhere, you might have seen her in Heroes (in which she played, um, a cheerleader again), Burlesque (non-cheerleader) and the let’s-all-share-the-Earth’s-resources documentary Unity (which she narrated, possibly while wearing a cheerleader outfit – we can’t know for certain).
