Ellie Kemper Biography

Ellie Kemper is an actress and writer originally from St. Louis, MO. She attended Princeton University as an undergraduate. Ellie was a member of the field hockey team during her freshman year at college, when the team placed second in the NCAA Division One National Championship. After leaving the field hockey team, where she mostly sat on the bench and provided water for her teammates who were actually tired and sweaty from playing on the field instead of sitting on the bench, she joined the campus' improvisation group, Quipfire!, and its musical theater group, Triangle.

After graduating, she spent a year at Oxford University pursuing graduate studies in English Literature.

Upon moving to New York, Ellie studied improvisation at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre and the People's Improv Theater. She also interned for a year at "Late Night with Conan O'Brien," appearing in sketches on the show. She has appeared in many television commercials, hawking items from Mega M&M's to Citibank to Caltrate. Ellie was a contributing writer for "The Onion" while living in New York. She is also a contributor to the literary journal, "McSweeney's."

As an actress, she got her big break when she landed the role of Erin Hannon on the American version of "The Office." She played Erin for the last four seasons of the show. She has also appeared in the films "Bridesmaids," "21 Jump Street," "Laggies," and "Sex Tape."

Ellie currently plays Kimmy Schmidt in the Netflix comedy "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt." The show was created by Tina Fey and Robert Carlock. She also voices the character, "Crackle," in the Disney animated series, "Sofia the First." She voices the character Katie in "The Secret Life of Pets" animated series.

  • 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt' star Ellie Kemper on Jon Hamm, that big smile & more

    Even with 30 Rock partners Tina Fey and Robert Carlock as creators, it's hard to imagine Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt being the least bit funny without Ellie Kemper in the title role. The show's backstory — Kimmy was abducted in middle school and held prisoner for years by a doomsday cult leader (Jon Hamm) before escaping and moving to New York to get a clean break from the trauma — is so dark, and so at odds with Fey and Carlock's silly brand of humor, that it wouldn't work at all if not for Kemper's enormous reserves of warmth and joy. When Kimmy flashes that cartoonish, kilometer-wide smile, you understand how she got through her ordeal, and you have permission to move on from thinking about everything that happened down in the bunker.
