The Many Faces of… Anna Kendrick

Overview of the roles of actress Anna Kendrick in her career

Anna Kendrick was born in Portland, Maine on August 9, 1985. She appeared on stage at the age of 12 in the Broadway musical High Society in August 1998. Her performance was impressive and it earned her a Tony award nomination and she won the Theatre World Award. She performed in several musicals and in 2003 she appeared in the TV show The Mayor. In the same year she also made her movie debut in the film Camp. A big audience saw her for the first time in the Twilight movies, but she was also in movies like Up in the Air, 50/50, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, End of Watch and Paranorman.

My personal favorite role of hers is the movie in which I saw her for the first time, which was Up in the Air. She was very entertaining in it and she impressed me with her performance.

    Right now, I would probably say 50/5. Just because she added some humor to a character who has no idea what she’s doing yet tries to be professional.

      Yeah, she did manage to come across like someone with not a lot of experience in the psychology field. She has shown she can do different type of roles…

    So I noticed I not only got an e-mail notification of this post, but it also appeared on my Reader feed on WordPress. Are you back on WordPress? If so, what was your reason?

    • Nostra says:

      No, I’m not back on WordPress, still self hosted! The reason they might show up now is because I had some things moved on the server about two weeks ago, which might have resulted in them being picked up again by WordPress reader, although I’m not sure. I had also asked WordPress.com to move my subscribers, which might also have resulted in this. Anyway I’m very happy to hear it :)

    I think I might actually go with Rocket Science. She was pretty sparkling in that, like she always is.

      I don’t think I ever saw that. Is it worth watching?

    I’ve only seen her in Scott Pilgrim and Up in the Air. She definitely gave a memorable performance in Up in the Air.

    I like her in Up in the Air and 50/50 but that’s all I’ve seen her in so far.

      You should also check out Pitch Perfect, although her role in that isn’t as big it is a very enjoyable movie.

    Anna Kendrick is one of my favourite actresses at the minute. She has a wonderful talent and brings a fresh feeling to the screen which lightens up many of her movies. I thoroughly enjoyed her performance in Up in the Air and 50/50 especially!

      Nice to see that you appreciate her work and those two movies are great.

    It’s gotta be either Up in the Air or 50/50. Two great films, and Kendrick is a highlight in both.

    Fell a little bit in love with her after Up in the Air and 50/50. Wished she’d had more to do in End of Watch and fell a little out of love with her in Pitch Perfect!

      I can imagine that Pete :) Her role in End of Watch was small, but it fit the movie.

    Lovely actrice. Her performance in Up in the Air is great, but i also liked her in the first Twilight-movie and Pitch Perfect.

      Yeah, I like her too. Never saw the Twilight movies, so can’t comment on her performance in that.
