Rhea Seehorn’s real name is Deborah 

Deborah Rhea Seehorn chose to go by her middle name because “the Deborahs and Debbies that [she] knew or saw on TV always seemed to be really attractive cheerleaders, and it was not [her] lane at all in school,” Seehorn told Rolling Stone. “I just remember feeling a disassociation with the name from a very early age,” she continued.

Pronounced “Ray,” not “RHEE-uh” a la Rhea Perlman of Cheers fame, Seehorn said the only person who doesn’t call her that is her sister, who only does so “to bug the crap out of [her].”

She’s just fascinating to watch. You want to know what’s going on between those ears,” he continued.
