Rebecca Tobin, also known as Becca Tobin, born January 18, 1986,[1] is an American actress. She currently portrays Kitty Wilde on Glee, making her first appearance in the first episode of Season Four, The New Rachel.

Personal life

Becca grew up in Marietta, Georgia as the youngest of two girls and the daughter of two attorneys.[2] She was a cheerleader in seventh and eighth grade, but says it wasn't for her[3] and did dance after that.[4] She transferred schools halfway through her senior year. Having transferred from a theater arts school to a public one, she began to get bullied by girls who called her "theater freak" and "nerd."[5] They told her she would never become successful or a star,[2] and one girl threatened to beat her up.[6] She also received harsh text messages and her only friend began to ignore her. Because of the bullying, she began skipping school events, like pep rallies,[7] and didn't walk at her graduation.[6] She supports anti-bullying and is the female spokesperson for Bullyville.[5] She graduated from Wheeler High School in 2004.[2] She is an alumnus of AMDA, a performing arts college.[8]

Tobin graduated as valedictorian[9] of AV University in June 2013 after seven years.[10]

She was in a relationship with Matt Bendik up until his passing on July 10, 2014.[11] [1]

Quotes

I wasn't always great at coping with bullying, but I learned over the years. I would sometimes get so sick of being bullied that I would gain courage to strike back at my antagonists, which rarely made me feel better. I definitely had to learn to rise above the animosity or I would have crumbled into a million pieces.

—Becca Tobin


People say things they would never have the courage to say in person, and it gets really cruel sometimes. Even now, being on the show, I deal with a lot of people saying really mean things to me on Twitter, but I know if I ever met these people that they would never be able to say these things to my face. Or I hope they wouldn't. When I read these things, I just wish so badly that people could be more sensitive and know how much words can hurt.

—Becca Tobin
