When she became an adult, she left the Catholic faith she grew up with for Judaism.
She did not spend her childhood on a bed of roses, especially after her parents – her father, who worked as a used car dealer, and her mother, who had a job as an accountant in a locksmith’s shop – prolonged her marriage.

She studied at Rockford East High School and was already acting in plays when she turned 10. Natasha continued her education at Illinois State University, from where she auditioned at the Stella Adler Conservatory in Chicago.
