February 5, 1994
Clackamas, Oregon, U.S.
|Alma mater||Linfield College|
Aparna Brielle was born in Clackamas, Oregon to Partha Rajagopal and Girija Parthasarathy and was raised in the Cedar Mill area of the Portland, Oregon, metropolitan area. She has one younger brother, Vijay. As a child, she attended Valley Catholic School (then known as St. Mary of the Valley) in Beaverton, Oregon. At the age of nine, Brielle was amongst the youngest Bharatanatyam dancers in the world to graduate in an Arangetram performance after a mere three years of training. She attended the Arts & Communications High School, appearing in performances such as their fall 2011 production of Godspell, still performing as Aparna Parthasarathy. Brielle then attended Linfield College, where she majored in marketing.
In 2014, Brielle made her television debut on NBC's supernatural drama Grimm. In 2015, she appeared in TNT's The Librarians and in 2016, she appeared in Fox's short-lived Cooper Barrett's Guide to Surviving Life.
Brielle also stars as Lorna Reddy in Dead Girls Detective Agency, one of several new digital shows produced by NBCUniversal and Snap Inc. as part of their Snap Originals series. The first season began airing October 22, 2018, with a new episode available for viewing every day.Dead Girls Detective Agency was renewed for a third and fourth season and began airing new episodes on August 11, 2019.
In early 2019, Brielle joined Kevin Smith's View Askewniverse, playing Jihad in Jay and Silent Bob Reboot. The movie is set to release on October 15. According to Smith, the "plucky Jihad" is part of a girl gang not unlike the characters played by Shannon Elizabeth, Ali Larter, Jennifer Schwalbach, and Eliza Dushku; however, the girls are not international jewel thieves, and their specific grouping was set up as a commentary on youth and diversity being a common focal-point in Hollywood's reboots and remakes.
