Creator / Anna Kendrick

Anna Kendrick (born August 9, 1985) is an American actress best known for her role in Pitch Perfect. She also was nominated for an Oscar for Up in the Air and played Jessica in the Twilight movies.

A native of Maine, she started her career on Broadway at 12, travelling to New York on Greyhound coaches (with only her 14-year-old brother as chaperone since her parents were too busy to drive her) and eventually got herself a Tony Award nominated role in High Society.

With a long background in theater, she is a very capable singer and has been consistently met with praise for her onscreen charisma and acting chops. Also has a very supportive mother who has a habit of aggressively calling distributors in order to get Anna's indie films shown in her hometown - and if she's successful then going with "throngs of friends" to make sure the movie does well.
