Shailene Woodley, or “Shai” as she likes to be called, catapulted to stardom when she began starring in the ABC Family hit teen drama The Secret Life of the American Teenager as Amy Juergens, the teen who had unprotected sex one time with player Ricky Underwood and got pregnant. Now, a few seasons in, the character of Amy Juergens is a teen mother and her love life is in a turmoil.
But Secret Life isn’t the first big time show that Shai Woodley has been cast. She also played Kaitlin Cooper during the first season of The OC. Beyond those roles, she’s had guest appearances in over half a dozen hit television shows such as Everybody Loves Raymond, CSI: NY, Without a Trace, and more. She’s also had roles in a handful of television movies and films. She’s also done more than 20 commercials.
Before Secret Life, Shai attended public school but since has graduated through correspondence. She has plans of attending New York University to major in interior design and psychology.

As far as my research goes, the only verified social site is Shai’s Myspace. There are over sixty Twitter accounts claiming to be the real Shai and Facebook has a handful. (Please note that it’s very easy on Facebook to scrawl the message “Verified” on the about section.)
