Who Is Michaela McManus? New You Character Natalie Is Joe's New Obsession

You season three has officially landed and fans are just as obsessed with new neighbour Natalie as Joe is.

Warning: Season 3 spoilers alert.

Joe (Penn Badgley) first laid eyes on Natalie (Michaela McManus) at the end of season two and she soon becomes irresistible to him.

In season three, Joe and Love (Victoria Pedretti) move to a new town in season three to raise their son Henry and make a fresh start. As the couple tries to keep up the appearance of the friendly new family on the block, Natalie, a sexy, elusive and flirtatious character, soon causes Joe to fall off the wagon.

The latest instalment of this psychological thriller is made up of ten suspenseful one-hour episodes and season four has already been confirmed.

In case you need a recap before reading on, here's a guide to everything that's happened so far in You.

Who is Michaela McManus and what films has she been in?

If you think you recognise the actress who plays Natalie from somewhere else, chances are you do.

Michaela McManus is an American actress who's known for her roles as Lindsey Strauss on One Tree Hill, A.D.A. Kim Greylek on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, and Grace Karn on NBC's Aquarius.

Born on 20th May 1983 in Rhode Island, McManus is 38-years-old in 2021. She's been married to writer-producer Mike Daniels since 2011 and has three children with him.

Who is Michaela McManus in You?

McManus plays Natalie, one of Joe and Love's new neighbours in You season three. Shalita Grant is also new to the You cast and plays mom-fluencer Sherry, who's married to Cary (Travis Van Winkle).

She's mysterious and has a secret life of her own, which Joe works hard to try and find out more about.

In true Joe fashion, he becomes obsessed and fixated on her and comes to the conclusion that Natalie is the woman he should be really with. But Love isn't going to stand by and watch that happen.

Does Natalie die in You season 3?

Yes. Natalie does die in a rather brutal way in season three.

As mentioned, Love isn't the kind of girl who's going to stand back and watch her man go off with another woman, so she eliminates the problem and (quite literally) axes Natalie to death - so much for a quiet life in their new neighbourhood.
