Anne Dudek is an American actress best known for her roles as Tiffany Wilson in the movie White Chicks and Dr. Amber Volakis in the TV series House.


Dudek was born in Boston, Massachusetts, on March 22, 1975, but was raised in Newton. She attended Northwestern University in her early years, where she appeared in various theater productions and on Broadway, making her debut in the latter on Wrong Mountain in 2000. She later won the Connecticut Critics Circle Award for her performance in The Glass Menagerie. She then appeared on television, first starring in the British comedy-drama The Book Group. She has since guest-starred on a number of other TV shows, including Desperate Housewives, How I Met Your Mother, Friends, ER, Charmed, Bones, Numb3rs, and Six Feet Under. She also portrayed Lucinda Barry in the pilot episode of Psych, and then a schoolteacher who has a sexual relationship with one of her students on Law & Order: Criminal Intent.

Dudek then landed a recurring role on House beginning in its fourth season, portraying Amber Volakis, one of forty physicians under consideration by Dr. Gregory House for permanent positions on his team. Her character continued to appear throughout the season, but was then killed off in the two-part finale, "House's Head" and "Wilson's Heart". She would later reappear as a hallucination by House in the fifth-season episode "Saviors", later appearing as such for the remainder of the season. Dudek later appeared in Mad Men as next-door neighbor Francine Hanson, and on Big Love as one of Alby Grant's antagonistic wives, both of them recurring roles. In 2010, Dudek joined the cast of Covert Affairs, portraying Danielle Brooks, the sister of the central character. She has also appeared in movies, playing the role of cruise-line heir Tiffany Wilson in the 2004 comedy White Chicks, and also played Anthony Hopkins's daughter in The Human Stain.
