Aubrey Plaza started making her mark as April Ludgate on NBC's Parks and Rec, where she's played an intern-turned-Ron Swanson's assistant-turned Deputy Director of Animal Control.

The actor and comedienne has parlayed that success into several movie roles, from a smaller part in "Safety Not Guaranteed" to the lead in the coming-of-age comedy "The To Do List."

Now, she's appearing in "Life After Beth," as a young woman who actually comes back from the dead as a flesh-eating zombie -- thus perhaps giving life to an all-new genre: The zombie rom-com.
