Bio

Anna Chlumsky is an American actress best known for her role as Vada Sultenfuss in My Girl (1991), as well as in its 1994 sequel; and for her starring role as Amy Brookheimer, the vice president's chief of staff, in the satirical comedy television series Veep, for which she was nominated in 2013 for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series.

Chlumsky entered show business at an early age, modeling with her mother in an advertising campaign, though her roles in My Girl and My Girl 2 brought her fame. She also starred in Trading Mom (1994) alongside Sissy Spacek, as well as in Gold Diggers: The Secret of Bear Mountain with Christina Ricci.

In the mid to late 1990s, Chlumsky starred in several television film and series. Once she reached adulthood, roles became scarce and she began to consider other careers. She attended the University of Chicago, graduating in 2002 with a BA in International Studies.

After graduation she worked as a fact-checker for the Zagat Survey and served as an editorial assistant for a HarperCollins science fiction-fantasy imprint. She found this work unsatisfying and decided to return to acting. She went to the Atlantic Acting School in Manhattan to receive formal training.

She appeared in Armando Iannucci's BBC Films political satire In The Loop, costarring with Peter Capaldi, Tom Hollander, Chris Addison, James Gandolfini and Mimi Kennedy, a quasi-spinoff of Iannucci's BBC TV series The Thick of It.

She plays Liza, a State Department assistant in the movie. Chlumsky also plays the chief of staff to vice-president Julia Louis-Dreyfus in HBO's Veep, also produced by Iannucci.

In addition to her role on Veep, Chlumsky has appeared in multiple television series since, including White Collar, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and NBC's adaptation of Hannibal.
