To begin with, the girl grew up in Palm Springs with her two brothers. From an early age she was taught to play the piano, and loved music and dance.

Concerning her professional career, Shawkat began her acting career with a guest appearance in the television series “JAG” in 1999, and in the same year she received a small role in David O. Russell’s movie “Three Kings”, and then played a supporting role in the television series “State of Grace” (2002) with Mae Whitman and Dinah Manoff. Her breakthrough came with the series “Arrested Development” in which Shawkat played a major role from 2003 to 2006, in 2005 receiving a Young Artist Award for her role of Mae Fünke. In 2008 she starred alongside Steven Kaplan, William H. Macy and Cheryl Hines in the comedy film “Bart Got a Room” by Brian Hecker, and the same year, the actress starred opposite Raviv Ullman in the comedy film “Prom Wars” by Phil Price. Later, Shawkat starred in the feature films “Amreeka” (2009) and “The Oranges” (2011), ande interpreted Clementine in the film “That’s What She Said”, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, adding steadily to her net worth.

In 2013, Alia starred in the award winning drama film “Night Moves” by Kelly Reichardt, and was then cast as a main in the feature films “The Moment” (2013), “Wild Canaries” (2014) and “The Final Girls” (2015).

Since 2016, the actress has been one of the main characters in the television series “Search Party”, in which she portrays Dory Sief, the role for which she won a Gracie Award in the category of the Actress in a Breakthrough Role. In addition, Alia created the lead role in the film “Paint It Black” (2016) written and directed by Amber Tamblyn. In 2017, she starred in the comedy drama film “Izzy Gets the F*ck Across Town” written and directed by Christian Papierniak.

In 2018, two feature films starring Shawkat are scheduled to be released – “Blaze” and “Duck Butter”, which will no doubt add to Alia’s net worth.

Finally, in the personal life of the actress, she was in relationship with Jack Antonoff from 2009 to 2010, and then dated Michael Angarano (2010 – 2011). Currently, she is apparently single.

1If your friend's feeling bad, it's hard to know what to do. Do you back away or try to help them? It's a really hard situation that I've been in. You want to support your friend. You want to be there. My advice is, don't get too involved with it, just be by their side. If they need your help, they'll ask for it.
2We don't have a laugh track, which helped Seinfeld a lot, and did kind of tell people when to laugh. It just made it a lot easier. Our show doesn't have that, so it's hard for Middle America to catch on.
3With independent film, as an actor, you have more involvement - it's very much more connected. It's not just like I'm showing up and there's another actor on the call sheet; you're very attached to it.
4When I get a new script my mom will read them and just be aghast. I think it's hysterical.
5Yeah, I've worked with a couple of female directors, now, and I think that they're amazing. As good or better than guy directors.
6I think with the whole new Internet media, I'm not necessarily Internet savvy, but I just feel that the way that art in general will be presented to the public is going to be different.
7I've been reading scripts where they've been doing a lot of singing now, but within the dark, realistic story line. I would love, love, love, love to do that. But not a musical on Broadway, I don't have that kind of energy or stamina.
8If you want to do something, then you do it. If you don't want to do something, don't just do it because your friends are doing it, or because all the popular kids are doing it.
9On American TV, there just aren't a lot of female leads in comedy, especially at the peak of all the Judd Apatow stuff.
10Right when I turned 18, I moved to New York, originally for school, and then dropped out and just lived in New York.
11The main thing I got from growing up in a suburb is the boredom you have as a child.
12The words are ludicrous at times, but you add the reality to it and that gives it the balance it has.
13We're not going to dumb down for them. They have to move up. They're the network and we're the show.
14I was a late bloomer.
15I was born and grew up in Palm Springs. It's a great place to grow up, a real small town.
16I would do a movie musical.
17It would be great to do theater one day, but I don't think I'd do a musical.
18Mitch Hurwitz was like a father figure to me. He was so sweet, and he's just so smart.
19I don't think it's good to say that you won't do certain things, but I don't necessarily have the natural urge to write.
20I feel very lucky.
21I go into work and get my hair and makeup done, go into wardrobe. I have to do three hours of school a day.
22I guess I've always been drawn to roles that have smart characters commenting on what's happening around them.
23I think for a girl to be strong, it doesn't have to involve being physically strong.
24When you focus on life, on enjoying and connecting with other people, that's when work comes. When you focus on work, you can never work. I'm always going through waves of that.
25Kids can be harsh, especially when they get jealous.
26But I love singing, and I've been singing backup for friends' bands.
27In my opinion FOX is known for being a network that just advertises, and that's pretty much how they get their viewers.
28As an actress, you never know when you're going to work again - and there's so much dependency on working.
1Good friends with Ellen Page, her Whip It (2009) co-star.
2Member of The Interstate 5 Tennis Association.
3Daughter of Dina Burke and Tony Shawkat.
4Step-granddaughter of Lyn Peters.
5Her father is Iraqi; he was born in Baghdad, and moved to the United States in the 1970s. Her maternal grandfather was of half Irish and half Italian descent, and her maternal grandmother was the daughter of Norwegian immigrants.
6Her maternal grandparents were actor Paul Burke of Valley of the Dolls (1967) fame, and former dancer Peggy Pryor (born Alice Louise Wikan).
7Her great-grandfather, Martin Burke, was a boxer who fought Gene Tunney and sparred with Jack Dempsey. Later, he and his wife owned a string of nightclubs in the New Orleans French Quarter.
8Her great-great-grandfather, Martin P. Burke, was a New Orleans policeman in 1898.
9She spends her time in both Los Angeles and her hometown of Palm Springs with her parents, two brothers, and her pet cat Max.
