Parks and Recreation actress who once interned at SNL

In 2020, Aubrey Plaza teamed up with Saturday Night Live alum Kenan Thompson for advertising Barefoot Hard Seltzer & Spritzer. In an interview with TuFabPlaza explained that they first met to film commercials despite Thompson being on SNL during the season Plaza was a trainee on the show. Similarly, Amy Poehler, Plaza’s Parks and Recreation co-star, was also a regular on SNL at the time, but Plaza also never met her on an SNL set.

Describing her time as an intern (and why she never dated her future co-stars), Plaza told TooFab, “When you’re an intern, you shouldn’t like making your presence known. Nobody says it, but it’s kind of an unspoken thing and I’ve definitely been hiding in the shadows.” In addition, she clarified that she did an internship in the design department and that even though she didn’t talk to many of the people on the show, she wanted to learn as much as possible during her internship. She concluded by saying, “I was so happy to be there, it was one of the best experiences of my life.”

The actress also revealed that she and Thompson talked about how their paths almost crossed 15 years ago when Plaza was a trainee. She said, “He couldn’t believe it. He said, ‘I couldn’t believe you were there the whole season.'”
