If you are asking about the woman with the recurring roles, her name is Stephanie Courtney. She is in at least two other progressive commercials, including the "Check-out Girl" …who shouts "surprise". Actress Stephanie Courtney is from Long Island, NY.

Stephanie Courtney, an improve comedian who has done lots of television and works with The Groundlings in California.
Stephanie Courtney is Flo and Monica Creel is the blond in the name tag commercial.
Stephanie Courtney plays Flo on the Progressive commercials. Shehas also appeared in many other commercials, movies, and had somereoccurring t.v. show appearances.
Correction to below answer:. The blond is in fact Monica Creel, not Leanna, according to Leanna herself when asked about the commercial 8/1/08. Yup her name is Leanna Creel and she is a triplet her sisters are Monica and Joy and they have appeared in growing pains, saved by the bell and also were …in later parent trap movies with Hayley Mills. . The actress is a strawberry blonde and looks very familiar, but I cannot place her. It's killing me.. I've been having the same problem myself and I think I may know the answer, or at least very close to it. She looks very much like a girl who played on the show "Saved by the Bell" about 15 years ago. The problem is, from what I gather, she was one of a set of identical triplets. The girl on "Saved by the Bell" was named Leanna Creel. One of her sisters was named Monica, but I don't know the other triplet's name. I could be way off, but the girl in the Progressive ad had a facial mannerism that just reminded me of someone, and it drove me crazy trying to figure out who it was until I saw a picture of someone who used to be on that show, and it set off the proverbial light bulb.

In the commercials her name is Flo but in real life her name is Stephanie Courtney. She is a comedian.
The cashier is Stephanie Courtney, stand-up comedian http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bRZiMUJ8bqE&feature=related. She also played the "computerized" know-it-all working in the library of Wolfram & Hart on the TV series Angel - "Tricked out nametag" .... funny line!
Stephanie Courtney is FLO..."Who plays the girl WITH Flo in the ads?" So far nobody knows...she's just not a 38 year old - she only looks to be in her mid to late twenties at the most so it can't be any of the Creel sisters...unless she discovered THE FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH!
I've seen the commercial twice tonight, and I believe you are correct. The voice is the biggest giveaway, but when you really look close, you can see that it's her. Update: You are referencing Leanna Creel who played Tori Scott in Saved by the Bell. The woman in the commercial is in fact Monica Cre…el - Leanna's identical triplet sister (Joy is the third). Monica (not Leanna) is also in a new Swiffer commercial (which sparked my search today). . http://www.tv.com/monica-creel/person/40379/summary.html?q=monica%20creel&tag=search_results;title;1. (MORE)
NORAD- North American Air Defense command (part of the USAF). I guess probably the KGB keeps tabs on Nick too, as he"s (Nicholas II) a saint in the Russian Orthodox Church. Now to get a monitor on daughter number 4, red hair, five-nine, eyes blue, you know who- Anastasia! EDIT: The KGB (now the FSB…) were involved in intelligence gathering, so they would pass on information to Santa about who had been bad or good rather than track his flight over Russia... (MORE)

A fine example of a trick question! a Movie called Santa Claus was made sometime in the late fifties and perennially rerun- in the Yule season, ho ho ho! It was heavily advertised on Television, Radio and newspapers. The ads came on with a blitz- Santa Claus- everyone is waiting to see Santa Claus! …In Eastman Colorscope. No cast of characters was listed in ANY of the ads. I guess they wanted to seal in the legend as tight as possible. If they listed an actor in the lead role- that would let the cat out of the bag. It was not a cartoon. Santa Claus was one of the very few dramatic films to have an anonymous cast! so be it. (MORE)

For some odd reason, Santa Claus is one character that in a very real sense acts anonymously.

The ads made no ment…ion of casting, merely giving credit to the fact the film was made in ( Eastman Colorscope) this is very unusual. It was NOT a cartoon. (MORE)
