We also got “Arrested Development” star Alia Shawkat in L.A. Tuesday … and she too told us why she’s standing with the embattled Rep. from Minnesota.
Alia Shawkat is known for her roles as Hannah Rayburn in State of Grace, and Maeby Fünke in the Fox/Netflix television sitcom Arrested Development. She also stars on the TBS comedy Search Party.
Her father, Tony Shawkat, a strip club owner, is Arab Iraqi from Baghdad. Her mother, Dina Shawkat (née Burke), is of Norwegian, Irish, and Italian descent.
