Biography

A striking model-turned-actress, Krysten Ritter was a featured extra in the Julia Roberts drama "Mona Lisa Smile" (2003) but achieved more notice for playing poor little rich girl Gia Goodman on "Veronica Mars" (UPN, 2004-06; The CW, 2006-07). After recurring on "Gilmore Girls" (The WB, 2000-06; The CW, 2006-07) and "'Til Death" (Fox, 2006-2010), Ritter essayed a string of quirky, sharp-tongued best friends in "27 Dresses" (2008), "What Happens in Vegas" (2008), "Confessions of a Shopaholic" (2009) and "She's Out of My League" (2010). On the small screen, she dazzled critics and showcased her range as the increasingly desperate, and dangerous Jane, girlfriend to Jesse (Aaron Paul) on "Breaking Bad" (AMC, 2008- ). Chosen by Amy Heckerling to star opposite Alicia Silverstone as the glamorous bloodsuckers of "Vamps" (2012), Ritter achieved a mainstream breakthrough as the star of "Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23" (ABC, 2012- ), playing the titular Chloe, an offbeat con artist who inspires fear, lust and admiration in everyone whom she scams. The smart, strange series served as a valentine to the actress' one-of-a-kind talent, and she received near-unanimous praise for her star-making performance. An instantly recognizable beauty and enormous talent, Krysten Ritter seemed positioned to continue her meteoric rise up the Hollywood ladder.
