Oh Summer Roberts. If I could sit here and describe her character on the show it would be easy, but to describe Rachel is almost the complete opposite. Although Rachel is driven and forward much like her character, she is no where near as snobby. Rachel actually enjoy's playing this role for that reason. "It's great playing someone who is not like me at all. I'm really a nice girl, so it's fun to be a bitch, then come home and be myself again. When I meet people now, they're surprised that I'm a good person." The only thing she actually may have in common with Summer is her passion for shoes, but in real life Rachel is not into ritzy stores, her favorite store to shop in is actually Target.
Rachelle Jade Bilson was born on November 13, 1981 in Los Angeles, CA. Although what she says, her family agrees that as the youngest, she was pretty much spoiled rotten growing up. Friends and family say that she was treated like a princess throughout her youth in LA. Rachel was introduced to acting at the age of 7, when her parents helped her land her first film role in "The Wrong Guys". After her debut, she held many minor roles in films and plays and she soon realized acting was her dream she needed to follow. Soon after graduating high school she found an agent to help her fill her dreams.
She was soon making her TV debut in several small roles on shows such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Her true success was when she landed the role as a main character, Summer Roberts. Rachel's success in the show proves that she is a young hit that will keep preforming for us for years to come.
