Krysten Ritter has popped up in dozens of films and TV shows over the years. She's been everywhere having a great run on Breaking Bad, leading the sitcom Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23, then starring as Marvel's Jessica Jones. That's quite a run, but who is Krysten Ritter?
How did she get started? What was she doing before she was the B*tch in Apartment 23? What does she do when she's not on set? How much does she love animals? What causes does she support? Which actresses in particular inspire her?
She's Tall... Really TallMost actors seem larger than life on screen and then when you meet they physically fall short. Krysten Ritter is the opposite, she's strikingly tall.
She Has an Eye for Fashion and DesignShe started as a young model, and clearly paid attention to the fashion and design because nowadays she's on the other side of the dress. She's co-designing dresses, shoes, and jewelry. She's already helped create a dress with fashion designer Corey Lynn Calter and a Jewelry line with Michael Spirito. Impressive.
She Grew Up on a Farm
You know that classic small town girls moves to the big city story? That's Ritter for you.She told Philadelphia Style, "I grew up on a farm in Shickshinny, Pennsylvania. I really liked it because I had animals to play with and a moped to ride around on and a cow I could ride, too. Very opposite of how my life is now."
She's a Succesful WriterIn addition to acting in film and television she plans to, and has, written for film and television. She has even had one of her projects optioned - a script about her experiences as a model.
