Biography

Caplan was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She is probably best known for her role as Miss Geist in Amy Heckerling's box office hit "Clueless", starring Alicia Silverstone. Caplan went on to Executive Produce and reprise the role of Miss Geist in the ABC TV series "Clueless".

At Sony Studios, Caplan produced "Loser", starring Jason Biggs and Mena Suvari. Caplan played Mena's best friend, Gena a strip bar worker.

She recently returned from London wrapping the romantic comedy "I Could Never Be Your Woman", playing Michelle Pfeiffer's costume designer, Sissy, with Paul Rudd, as well as producing. The film marks her twenty-year acting reunion with Michelle Pfeiffer, who had played her best friend in "Falling in Love Again".

In the massive hit that won a People's Choice Award , "Look Who's Talking", which starred John Travolta and Kirstie Alley raising a baby voiced by Bruce Willis, Caplan played Alley's flirty best friend Rona and went on to co-star in the sequel, "Look Who's Talking Too", with Elias Koteas as her love interest.

Caplan played the Home Economics teacher in "Fast Times", with Courtney Thorne-Smith, Patrick Dempsey, and Wallace Langham. In "Night at the Roxbury", Caplan played against Will Ferrell; she worked with Bonnie Hunt as the nosey neighbor duo living next door to Demi Moore and Judge Reinhold.

Caplan just finished playing B. Lawney, a waitress with Richard Gere in "The Flock" directed by Andrew Lau; Mary Benett, a hard-edged bus driver for "" Las Vegas; an odd and embittered Aunt June in the film "Changing Spots", directed by Susan Turley; and a past-her-prime movie star desperate for a come-back in "Secrets of a Hollywood Nurse".
