Question: Who's that girl who was in the Kia commercial a while back (seen driving the same car, with the same dog, as her boyfriends changed through the years) and more recently in the guacamole Doritos spot (with the kid climbing inside the vending machine)? I think I saw her recently in the forgettable Nick Brendon movie Pinata, but I couldn't catch the credits or remember her character's name. Can you help? Am I hallucinating? — Kate, Chicago, Ill.

Televisionary: You're thinking of actress Stacey Cowley, Kate, and while I don't believe she was in the movie you mentioned (also known as Demon Island), you may have caught her appearing on such shows as Come to Papa and Monk. You can find out more about her on her website.
