Anna Chlumsky

Anna Chlumsky (born December 3, 1980 in Chicago, Illinois) is an American actress.
She entered show business at an early age modeling with her mother in an advertising campaign. She is best known for playing Vada Sultenfuss in the 1991 movie My Girl and the 1994 sequel My Girl 2.

She was in Gold Diggers: The Secret of Bear Mountain with Christina Ricci, in which they "clown around" on a "haunted" mountain.

Chlumsky graduated from the University of Chicago in 2002 and had worked in New York City as a researcher for Zagat, a restaurant review company, for a short while.

Columbia Pictures expressed serious interest in "My Girl 3" (also known as "Still My Girl") and a script has been in development since 2003, according to Dan Aykroyd. Aykroyd revealed in media outlets that Columbia was attempting to sign Anna for the role.[1] The project is still in development stages, with no current updates in four years, and not one press release, much to the chagrin of internet community movie fanatics.

Chlumsky appeared on the March 8, 2007 episode of 30 Rock called "The Fighting Irish." She played Liz Lemler who is the girlfriend of Floyd (Jason Sudeikis) who sent the flowers to Lemler in "Up All Night" that ended up with Liz Lemon.

She also appeared as "Mary Calvin" in an episode of NBC drama series Law & Order (Season 17, Episode 12) first airing January 12th 2007.

She will star in the new CW series Eight Days a Week.
