I'd rather be a happy Magic Marker than a skinny pencil.

"I'd rather be a happy Magic Marker than a skinny pencil," says chubby Natalie—and she means it. Even though she doesn't fit the mold of a traditional beauty, Natalie has a healthy self-image and a razor-sharp wit. She is an active member of the school newspaper staff, which she hopes will prepare her for a future as a writer. One of her major flaws is her willingness to follow any new trend or advice, no matter how way-out it may seem. In 2001 her boyfriend Harper proposes to her and they planned to get married. She and Harper work for a news publishing company.

Mindy Cohn was born on May 20th, 1966, in Los Angeles, California. Mindy Cohn, known to most as the somewhat neurotic Natalie Green on The Facts of Life, has been an actress, a talk-show hostess and a game-show guest star. She was discovered by future co-star Charlotte Rae when Rae was researching for the show at Cohn's L.A. school, Harvard-Westlake. Mindy also earned her college degree in sociology, which was put to good use on a Phoenix-based radio talk show where she discussed teen issues alongside co-host Alan Thicke. (Coincidentally, Thicke co-wrote the Facts of Life theme song.
