Alona Tal is a television actress. She played Simone, Aria Montgomery's former babysitter on the hit show, Pretty Little Liars.

Life and Career

Tal started her career fresh out of the Israel Defense Forces, with a children's musical video tape, in which she played an evil witch. Following that, she appeared in a commercial for a laundry detergent. After that she got the lead role in the Israeli film Lihiyot Kochav (To Be A Star).

During the filming of the movie, she was offered two roles in two different Israeli television shows, and she took both. The first was a soap opera named Tzimerim, about the life of a family that runs a hotel; the second one was HaPijamot (The Pyjamas), a sitcom about a struggling band, determined to make it in the real world. This sitcom ran for seven seasons, she took part in four of them, and later took part as a guest star which gave Tal the chance to show her musical talent. Although she was the main character only in the first three seasons, she appeared in the fourth season for several episodes. Following that, Tal recorded several songs with Israeli rapper, Subliminal.

Tal moved to New York City where she met singer Wyclef Jean and recorded a song with him (the song "Party to Damascus" has Tal singing the chorus in Hebrew).

She landed a role on Veronica Mars, as Meg Manning, one of Veronica Mars' few friends. She also played the recurring role of Jo Harvelle on the second, fifth, and seventh seasons of Supernatural. Tal also guest-starred on the series finale of Monk, as Adrian Monk's stepdaughter, Molly Evans.

In 2010, she was the voice of Catherine-B320 (also known as Kat) in the video game Halo: Reach.
