Hannah Simone was extremely successful before starring on ‘New Girl’

According to Business Insider, Simone lived across the world throughout her childhood. She was born in London, and later lived in Canada, Saudi Arabia, Greece, and India.

At the age of 13, Simone worked as a fashion model. Then, while living in New Delhi, India, she attended the American Embassy School. While there, she helped organize a benefit concert for women and children with AIDS.

Simone later earned a B.A. in International Relations from the University of British Columbia, as well as a B.A. in Radio and Television Arts at Ryerson University. She even eventually worked for the United Nations.

“I worked for the United Nations, based in London and Switzerland. I was a human rights and refugee officer and developed programs for youth,” Simone said to the LA Times in 2016. “I like to treat the entire world like it’s my neighborhood. People look at my resume and think I’m all over the place. … But to me it all feels very linear. It’s part of the same world. Because of New Girl now I have a great platform which allows me to do something that gives back to this planet.”

In 2005, Simone made her acting debut on Kevin Hill, which starred Taye Diggs. She then took on several other projects — including a hosting job on WCG Ultimate Gamer, which aired on SyFy — before eventually landing her role as Cece on New Girl.

She starred on ‘New Girl’ for seven seasons

New Girl first aired in 2011, and Simone starred as Cece from the very beginning.

Simone’s character had a really fun relationship with Jess Day (Zooey Deschanel), and the two were pretty much life-long friends. As the seasons went on, viewers watched Jess and Cece fight, help each other through breakups, see the other get married, and ultimately grow as individuals. 

Cece ended up married to Schmidt (Max Greenfield) in the end, while Jess married Nick (Jake Johnson). Their relationships did not affect their friendship too much, though, as Nick and Schmidt were also best friends that the show highlighted throughout its entirety.

New Girl ultimately lasted seven seasons as it last aired in 2018.
