Who Is Hannah Simone, Star Of ‘New Girl’ And New ‘Kicking And Screaming’ Host?
Hannah Simone is the British-Canadian actress on New Girl who will be starring in a new Fox show called Kicking and Screaming.
WHO IS HANNAH SIMONE?
Simone had her first taste of fame nine years ago when she moved to LA, when paparazzi chased her thinking she was Kim Kardashian. “I had my bangs and a high ponytail and Kim had just gotten bangs… I wasn’t on a show — nothing. And then all of sudden this herd of paparazzi was chasing me down a street screaming, ‘Kim!’ I didn’t know what was happening, I didn’t know who Kim was,” she said. “It wasn’t until a friend down the road yelled at me, ‘They think you’re Kim Kardashian!’ I was like — what the heck?”
Currently, Simone stars alongside Zoey Deschenel on New Girl and plays Schmidt’s (Max Greenfield) now-wife Cece. She is also the host of new Fox television shoe Kicking and Screaming, a survival reality series. The show pairs 10 expert survivalists with pampered novices, and they must survive and cross the finish line to win.
The show films in Fiji, which is perfect for Simon, who said she loves “watching survival competition shows set in exotic and incredible locations.” The show premiered Thursday.
My brand new show @kickingscreamingfox premiered last night and this Tuesday kicks off the final four episodes of season six of @newgirlonfox ending with an INSANE season finale. I am not sure exactly what I have done to have two jobs I love and that I get to share with people every week in their homes but I know I wouldn’t be able to do them without you tuning in and supporting them so THANK YOU. I can’t stop smiling xo #kickingandscreaming #thursdaysonfox #newgirl #tuesdaysonfox
Finally, Simone is working on a new film with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Taran Killam called Why We’re Killing Gunther. It is set to be released later this year.
