Krysta Anne Rodriguez was born on Jul. 23, 1984 in Orange County, CA. Her formative interest in performance took its start when she was only 11, earning a role on the children's television series "Colby's Clubhouse" (TBN 1984-2000). Rodriguez remained a cast member of the program for five years between 1995 and 2000, taking up dance all the while. Rodriguez began performing in a number of stage productions in high school; she maintained this fixation into college, striving for a career on Broadway throughout her two-year tenure at New York University. Rodriguez eventually made her Broadway debut in 2005 with the Beach Boys-themed musical "Good Vibrations." Her television and film debuts followed along quickly-she went on to appear in a one-off role on a second season episode of "Gossip Girl" (The CW 2007-2012) and in a starring role in the comedy film "The Virginity Hit" (2010). Around the same time, Rodriguez costarred in "The Addams Family" Broadway musical, playing the character Wednesday Addams. Following these breakouts were a slew of roles on stage and screen, notably a regular position throughout the second season of the musical TV series "Smash" (NBC 2012-13). Shortly afterward, Rodriguez was diagnosed with breast cancer, which inspired her to start a blog, ChemoCouture, chronicling her contention with the disease. She continued to act despite the diagnosis, appearing in a recurring role on the series "Chasing Life" (ABC Family 2014-15) and in the stage musical "Spring Awakening." Rodriguez became part of the cast of the mockumentary series "Trial & Error" (NBC 2017-), playing the daughter of John Lithgow's main character.
