You may recognize Aya Cash from a string of successful television shows like The Good Wife, The NewsroomThe Good WifeModern FamilyLaw & Order, and You're The Worst. Or, maybe you know her name because she's the daughter of poet and novelist Kim Addonizio and the granddaughter of Wimbledon champion Pauline Betz Addie and sportswriter Bob Addie. Either way, you should know her as a hilarious comedian who plays refreshingly genuine, super-awkward characters.

In our interview with the actress, ahead, we talk about sexuality, poetry and dealing with evil trolls on Twitter. She may make people laugh for a living, but she gets serious when it comes to defending the things that she believes in.
