Pamela Adlon was born July 9, 1966.
Pamela Fionna Adlon is an American actress, voice actress, screenwriter, and producer. She is best known for her voice work, in particular as the voice of Bobby Hill on King of the Hill for which she won an Emmy Award, as well as the title character of Pajama Sam. She is also known for playing Dolores in Grease 2 and Ashley Spinelli on the animated series Recess, and for her appearances on Californication and Louie, on which she is also a consulting producer.
Adlon said voice-overs saved her career. Successful as her child-actress years had been, she struggled to find parts in her 20s.
Adlon voiced Arthur Read in Arthur’s Thinking Games. Though she is mostly known for voicing young boys, Adlon has voiced two girl characters (both of which have boylike qualities): Margaret “Moose” Pearson in Pepper Ann and Ashley Spinelli in Recess.
Notable live-action roles include Girl Joey in the 1984 teen comedy film Growing Pains, Kelly Affinado on The Facts of Life, Marcy Runkle on Showtime’s Californication, Pamela on FX’s Louie (she is also a consulting producer for the show).
Adlon was nominated for an Annie Award for her role as Otto Osworth on Cartoon Network’s Time Squad. In 2006–07, she played the voice of Andy in Cartoon Network’s Squirrel Boy animated series, and co-starred with Louis C.K. as his wife in the short-lived HBO sitcom Lucky Louie. She also stars as the friend of Louie (a fictional character based off himself, Louis C.K.) in his FX single-camera show, Louie. She is in episodes of seasons 1, 2, 4 and 5. For the 5th season, she received a Primetime Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series.
Adlon voiced Pajama Sam in the video games Pajama Sam: No Need to Hide When It’s Dark Outside, Pajama Sam 2: Thunder and Lightning Aren’t So Frightening, Pajama Sam 3: You Are What You Eat from Your Head to Your Feet, and Pajama Sam’s Games to Play on Any Day.
In 2015, FX gave a pilot order for Better Things which is a comedy created by and starring Adlon. She will play an actress raising three daughters. The pilot was written by Adlon and Louis C.K. who also directed it. It was picked up to a 10-episode series on August 7, 2015.
