Selina Meyer

Played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus

In the past the role of the Vice President has been a somewhat symbolic one. This Vice President aims to change all that. Her many passions include the environment, jobs and much-needed Senate reform. But despite these grand ambitions, or perhaps because of them, Selina Meyer remains very much a people person. Her mantra is "politics is about people" and she hopes to bring people closer to politics and politics closer to people. She's even given herself an informal nickname - Veep - to underline her approachability. She hopes it catches on! As she says, "I'd like to be remembered as the People's Vice President."
