Merritt Wever (born in 1980) is an American actress. She graduated from Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School, and then Sarah Lawrence College. She trained in acting in New York and has appeared in Brooke Berman's play, Smashing and in Cavedweller with Deidre O'Connell, both Off Broadway. Wever has appeared in the feature films Into the Wild, Neal Cassady, Michael Clayton, Series 7: The Contenders, Signs, The Adventures of Sebastian Cole, Bringing Rain, and All I Wanna Do, among others. She has guest starred on the TV shows Conviction, Law & Order: Criminal Intent and The Wire, among others. She also starred in Ed Zwick's ill-fated ABC pilot, 1/4life, with Rachel Blanchard, Austin Nichols, and Shiri Appleby. She had a recurring role on Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip as Suzanne. Wever is arguably best known for her ongoing role as Zoey Barkow in the dark comedy series Nurse Jackie, which premiered on Showtime in June 2009. Zoey—an irrepressibly bubbly student nurse—serves as a comic foil to Edie Falco's hard-bitten (and prescription drug-addicted) titular character.
