What we didn't know, however was how or why it happened… something that we've been pretty curious about!
So Aviva explained: she lost the leg when she was six years old in a farming accident while visiting a friend upstate.
But that didn't stop her from having a fulfilling life and love life! In fact, it kinda weeded the jerks from her dating sphere:
“When I first started dating at Fieldston [her high school]. But in law school, it was different. People are sexually attracted to each other, and after a date or two I’d have to tell them. It’s a great way to weed out the ones who shouldn’t have been with me. It was almost a protection from the bad ones out there."
We're so totally excited to see what she brings to the show — regardless of the amputation backstory!
