Since the early 1990s Marla Sokoloff has been a fixture on television, courtesy of roles on classic shows like Full House (where she had the recurring role of Stephanie Tanner's nemesis Gia Mahan), Party of Five, legal drama The Practice (she played Lucy the receptionist and, later, rape crisis counselor) and a host of other guest spots. She also made a name for herself on the big screen, starring in the 2000 cult classic Dude, Where’s My Car? alongside Ashton Kutcher, Seann William Scott and Jennifer Garner. If being associated with these pop-culture classics wasn’t enough, the icing on the cake for Sokoloff came about in 2001 when she didn’t just become a friend of Friends, but a member of the Friends family by appearing as Dina Tribbiani, the youngest of Joey’s seven sisters.
