Brooke Lyons stars in "2 Broke Girls" on CBS in the recurring role of Peach. She is also featured in ABC Family's "Jane by Design" as Birdie.

Brooke Lyons grew up in Connecticut, where she spent her childhood riding horses in the English style, wearing penny loafers in an un-ironic manner and, as Scorpios are wont to do, pondering the mysteries of existence.

A gifted ballet dancer, she studied at Manhattan's Joffrey Ballet School, the Boston Ballet and le Centre de Danse International in Cannes, France. By age 16, she was a company member at New England Ballet, where she danced principal roles including Juliet in Prokofiev's "Romeo and Juliet," the Sugar Plum Fairy in Tchaikovsky's "The Nutcracker," and the title role in Stravinsky's "Firebird."

At Yale University, Brooke developed a taste for Romantic poetry, 19th century Russian novels and soy chai lattes, as well as a fascination with the rabbit hole that is theater. It was there that she cut her teeth on a broad spectrum of plays including Neil Simon's "Rumors," George Bernard Shaw's "Heartbreak House" and Jean Genet's "The Maids."

These days Brooke calls Los Angeles home. Her body of work includes plum roles in NBC's "American Dreams," Disney's "That's So Raven," USA's "The Starter Wife," ABC's "Desperate Housewives," NBC's "Love Bites" and "Law & Order: Los Angeles." You may have also seen Brooke starring in Universal Studios' comedy "Welcome Home, Roscoe Jenkins" or returning to her dancing roots in MTV's movie-musical "The American Mall."
