Sue HeckPlayed by Eden Sher
Sue is the only daughter of Frankie and Mike Heck. While middle children might be known for being passed over, we're pretty sure you won't forget about Sue. She tries really hard to find her niche, but she can't help but fail spectacularly at everything she tries. But she fails so huge and puts so much into every effort, you won't be able to help rooting for her, because one day she's going to make her mark.
At the young age of eight, Eden Sher began singing in her school chorus, which led to acting in school productions. After a small appearance on The Tonight Show, which happened to be shot at her school, she discovered that performing was indeed her passion, and has continued ever since to work in commercials, television, films and on stage.
Sher recently won a Critics Choice Television Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy for her role as Sue Heck after three consecutive nominations. Prior to that she was best known for her work on ABC's Sons & Daughters. She also starred in Starz's Party Down, ABC Family's The Middleman, Disney Channel's Sonny with a Chance and Showtime's Weeds.
Outside of acting, Sher uses her love of words and emotion to create
www.the-emotionary.com, a website/tumblr/twitter dedicated to the creation of words for complex feelings that have not yet been discovered. It is updated with definitions, quips and musings, and the site invites visitors to submit their own creations.
Sher also enjoys yoga, hiking, reading, music and volunteering. She is currently involved with an organization that promotes concerts by local musicians which raises funds for various charities. Not only does she devote her time and energy in her local community, she also promotes activism abroad and has spent summers overseas volunteering - with trips to India to work at a facility for young children, and earlier in Nicaragua, helping local farmers maintain sustainable agriculture through clean water irrigation.
