Her twin brother Alex Hirsch is a writer and cartoonist who created a show for Disney. While creating the show, he based the main character Dipper Pines on himself and decided to give him a twin sister Mabel, who he based off of her. She is involved with the fandom since it became public knowledge that she was the inspiration for one of her brother's characters. When they were growing up in Piedmont, California, she always wanted a pet pig. So while designing the show her twin brother gave her character a pet pig. She had a huge crush on N'Sync member Lance Bass as a child so her brother asked him to voice characters on the show. [+]
