Anna Faris is an American actress. She portrays Christy Plunkett on Mom.


Life and Career

Anna started acting at a very young age but, of course, not professionally. She loved watching plays and eventually produced her own with other neighborhood children. She was always encouraged with the emphasis that she wasn't just "pretending", but rather acting as an unpaid producer, director, writer, and actor.

Her first paid job was at the Seattle Repertory Theatre at the age of nine. She loved it and went on to do other local plays and readings. After graduating from the University of Washington in 1999 with a degree in English Literature, she decided to leave for London to work and write, but after filming Lovers Lane (2000) and a short for the Seattle Film Festival, she decided to give Los Angeles a try. She signed with up with a wonderful management agency and before she could catch her breath, Keenen Ivory Wayans casted her in Scary Movie (2000).

From 2013-2020, she portrayed Christy Plunkett on the CBS series Mom. In September 2020, it was announced that she would not be returning for the eighth season of the show.

She never takes anything for granted and just feels so very fortunate to have been given a chance. (An example was her trying to thank all the journalists and photographers that came to the New York premiere.)
