Actor Bio

Mouzam Makkar stars as Britney, Champions’ yoga instructor and self-proclaimed millennial liaison, on NBC’s new comedy series “Champions.”

Britney is a former Miss Teen India Hoboken and extremely ambitious, hoping to quit her job to become a full-time Instagram model - the next Amber Rose or, at the very least, Ice T’s wife, Coco. Despite her seemingly shallow exterior, Britney can sometimes be a source of valuable, albeit unsolicited, wisdom.

Makkar’s previous television credits include recurring roles on “The Vampire Diaries,” “The Exorcist,” “The Following,” “Chicago Fire” and “Matador,” as well as guest-star appearances on “9JKL,” “Law & Order: SVU,” “Chicago Justice,” “American Horror Story: Hotel,” “Bones,” “Stalker,” “Back in the Game,” “Betrayal,” “Sirens,” “See Dad Run” and “The Mob Doctor.”

Makkar is also a well-known theater actress in Chicago and L.A., where she consistently worked at several top venues. She has trained at the School at Steppenwolf and The Second City.
