Biography

A Tony nominee at the age of 12, actress Anna Kendrick graduated from top honors in the theater world to film stardom in a string of popular mainstream and independent releases in the late 2000s. After wowing the Broadway world in a 1998 production of "High Society," she impressed critics and audiences alike with her film debut in the 2003 comedy-musical, "Camp." Kendrick earned more praise for 2007's "Rocket Science," which preceded her biggest movie then to date, the teen vampire romance, "Twilight" (2008). Subsequent roles in major Hollywood features opposite Ben Stiller and a supporting actress Oscar nomination for "Up in the Air" (2009) solidified her status as one of the brightest up-and-coming talents in entertainment.
