  • Crazy Ex-Girlfriend's Vella Lovell on the Show's Bittersweet Final Season

    On Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Vella Lovell plays Heather Davis, a sardonic, lovable, often directionless community college student who serves as the foil and next-door neighbor to lead Rebecca Bunch (Rachel Bloom), a high-strung East Coast lawyer who gives up her career in search of happiness.

In fact, peeling back the curtain to acknowledge the artifice has been one of the most reliably entertaining tools in a crowded toolbox.
