Actress

Birth Name: Anna Ragsdale Camp

Birth Date: September 27, 1982

Anna Camp began compiling an impressive television résumé as a recurring actor on some of America's hottest-ticket shows in the first decade of the 21st century before breaking through with her first regular gig on the Fox sitcom "The Mindy Project" (Fox, 2012-15; Hulu, 2015- ). A native of South Carolina, Camp transplanted to New York to be a stage actress and made it to the Great White Way in big-ticket revivals of classics "The Country Girl" and "Equus" in 2006.

Two years later, she garnered her biggest audience to date in a steamy arc on the HBO vampire drama "True Blood" (2008-14) and went on to recurring guest-shots on high-profile dramas "Mad Men" (AMC, 2007-15) and "The Good Wife" (CBS, 2009-16). She took key roles in some unexpectedly well-received studio films, "The Help" (2011) and "Pitch Perfect" (2012), and, in 2012, her first regular sitcom job on Fox's loopy new addition to its comedy lineup "The Mindy Project," starring Mindy Kaling. With the buzz around her growing, Camp was tapped later that year by Entertainment Weekly for its list of 2012 "breakout" stars, signaling things were about to move to the next level for the charming actress.

She was born Anna Ragsdale Camp on Sept. 27, 1982 in Aiken, SC to Dee Camp, a former dancer, and Thomas Camp, a banking executive. The family moved to Columbia, SC in 1988. Following older sister Saluda's avocation, Anna began showcasing thespian talents in productions at Columbia's Meadowfield Elementary School and, later, at Dreher High School and the North Carolina School of the Arts. Graduating NCSA with a BFA in 2004, she followed her sister again, moving to New York City to pursue a stage career.

Her fresh-faced, patrician beauty garnered her some commercials, and she scored some estimable off-Broadway productions, including the ribald musical "God Hates the Irish" at the Rattlestick Playwrights Theatre and "Columbinus," a stylized treatment of the 1999 Columbine Massacre put up at the New York Theatre Workshop. Camp landed her first screen work in 2007 with a pilot for the Southern-set drama show "Reinventing the Wheelers" and a little-seen Vanessa Williams-anchored romantic comedy, "And Then Came Love."

In 2008, Camp made it to Broadway, taking supporting roles in high-profile revivals of Clifford Odets' "The Country Girl" and Peter Shaffer's "Equus," which saw her playing opposite "Harry Potter" star Daniel Radcliffe. In 2009, she scored a lead in the offbeat indie comedy "Bottleworld" and a pivotal recurring role in the second season of HBO's vampire melodrama "True Blood." On the latter, she played one-half of a seemingly idyllic husband-and-wife team who operate an anti-vampire Christian ministry, yet whose lives are less sunny than advertised.

Having made the move to Los Angeles, she began landing guest shots on a run of high-profile TV shows, including recurring roles as a socialite romantic interest to Don Draper in the fourth season of AMC's "Mad Men" and as a newly-minted lawyer who is a lot more than she appears in the 2011-12 season of CBS's legal drama "The Good Wife." After marrying fellow actor Michael Mosley in 2010, she returned to live theater a year later with a starring role in the Zach Braff-penned comedy "All New People," put up at New York's Second Stage Theatre.

She picked up a supporting role in the sleeper Disney hit "The Help" (2011), a coming-of-age tale about interactions between privileged but empathetic Southern white girls and African-American servants amid the throes of the civil rights movement. She tapped deeper into comedy in 2012, playing the taskmaster leader of a college a Capella singing group in the musical comedy "Pitch Perfect." It proved another relatively low-budget sleeper hit/feather in her cap.

Camp next landed her first regular role on the Fox sitcom centering on former producer-writer and co-star of "The Office" (NBC, 2005-2013) Mindy Kaling, "The Mindy Project." On the first season of the critical hit, Camp played the married-with-children best friend to the title character, providing a more down-to-earth tonic to and sounding board for Mindy's socially-awkward romantic escapades. After Camp's character was written out of the series following the first season, she returned to her breakthrough role in "Pitch Perfect 2" (2015), starred in the made-for-TV film "Caught" (Lifetime 2015), and appeared in the Woody Allen ensemble drama "Café Society" (2016).

After starring in the romantic drama "One Night" (2016), indie comedy "Brave New Jersey" (2016) and Madelyn Murray O'Hair biopic "The Most Hated Woman In America" (Netflix 2017), Camp appeared in "Pitch Perfect 3" (2017). During this period, Camp also co-starred in the period magazine drama "Good Girls Revolt" (Amazon 2016). Camp next appeared in art-world comedy "Egg" (2018) and appeared in romantic comedy "The Wedding Year" (2019).
