Caplan also co-starred with John Travolta and Kirstie Alley in the two highly successful comedies, Look Who's Talking and Look Who's Talking Too, creating the role of Alley's boy-crazy best friend, Rona, in both films.
Born in Pittsburgh, Caplan began her career as a professional dancer, studying and performing in summer stock and Civic Light Opera with the Nicholas Petrov Ballet Troupe and Mario Melodio. At the same time, she gyrated as a Go-Go Girl for the weekly TV program The Clark Race Show.
Caplan has always had dual roles; she worked for Women's Wear Daily in New York while acting in off-Broadway plays. She was executive producer of WEEP Radio at the same time she was the first female broadcaster and on-air personality in Pennsylvania's major markets.
Traveling with Bob Dylan's Rolling Thunder Review brought her to California, where she pursued an acting career that featured her as the eternal pal, playing best friend to Michele Pfeiffer, Demi Moore and Melanie Griffith. At the same time, she was working for Warner Bros. Studios and serving as a development executive at Columbia Pictures.
Continuing to wear two hats, Caplan produces Loser with partner Amy Heckerling, while at the same time playing the role of Gena. Caplan feels it is important to mention that she is rarely seen without her devoted companions - a cotton-ball Maltese named Leon and a caramel-candy poodle who answers to Nathan. Neither one is a producer or actor, but they both want to direct.
