Biografie von Anna Kendrick

Bei lief alles nach Plan: Erste Schauspielerfahrungen im Alter von zehn Jahren, gemeinsam mit ihrem Bruder Michael Cooke Kendrick, der ebenfalls Schauspieler ist, Umzug nach New York, Vorsprechen, Engagements am Theater und schließlich Hollywood.

Erste Bekanntheit durch die "Twilight"-Saga

Nach ihrer Zeit am Theater mit vielen Auszeichnungen war sie ab 2008 Teil eines der größten Teenie-Phänomene aller Zeiten: In "Twilight – Bis(s) zum Morgengrauen" spielte sie an der Seite der Megastars und die Rolle der Jessica Stanley. Auch in den Fortsetzungen "New Moon – Bis(s) zur Mittagsstunde", "Eclipse – Bis(s) zum Abendrot" und "Breaking Dawn – Bis(s) zum Ende der Nacht – Teil 1" war sie zu sehen. Der erste Schritt war getan, man kannte ihr Gesicht, der Filmbranche war sie keine Unbekannte mehr.

Durchbruch mit "Up in the Air"

Im Gegensatz zu den meisten anderen Darstellern der Vampir-Saga haftet der Teeniestar-Stempel an Anna jedoch nicht. Der ganz große Durchbruch samt Oscarnominierung folgte mit der Tragikomödie "Up in the Air". Die fleißige Anna war vielbeschäftigt, denn die Dreharbeiten für "Up in the Air" fanden zeitgleich mit denen für "Twilight – Bis(s) zum Morgengrauen" statt und so flog sie ständig von Set zu Set. Doch die Mühen zahlten sich aus. Regisseur sah von Anfang an das große Potenzial in der jungen Schauspielerin: Von Beginn an hatte er nur Anna für die Rolle im Sinn. Die Rolle, die in der Romanvorlage gar nicht vorkommt, wurde ihr auf den Leib geschrieben.

Anna liebt das Singen

Nach ihrem großen Erfolg mit "Up in the Air" sah man Anna in einigen Nebenrollen, so unter anderem in " gegen den Rest der Welt", "50/50 – Freunde fürs (Über)Leben" und "End of Watch", bis sie in "Pitch Perfect" die Hauptrolle der Beca bekam. Auch in der Fortsetzung "Pitch Perfect 2", die 2015 in die Kinos kam, war sie wieder als Beca zu sehen. In den Filmen um die weibliche A-cappella-Gruppe "The " durften die Zuschauer erstmals Annas Singstimme bewundern. Und offenbar hat die Schauspielerin große Freude am Singen. In den Musical-Filmen "Into the Woods" und "The Last Five Years" begeisterte sie ebenfalls mit ihrer Stimme.

Anna Kendrick abseits der großen Leinwand

Sogar schon den damaligen US-Präsidenten durfte die singende Schauspielerin mit ihrem musikalischen Können überzeugen. Im Dezember 2013 trat sie bei der Spendengala Christmas in Washington auf, zu deren Gästen unter vieler Prominenz auch besagter war. Generell scheint Anna Lust an vielseitigen Projekten fernab der Schauspielerei Gefallen zu haben. So gab sie 2014 ihr Debüt als Moderatorin in der legendären US-Comedyshow "Saturday Night Live". Und auch das Schreiben liegt dem Multitalent offenbar im Blut: 2016 veröffentlichte Anna Kendrick ihre Autobiografie "Scrappy Little Nobody".

Oh hi, just thought I'd make my weirdest thoughts available to the public. It's coming TOMORROW!! You can still pre-order!! (also, you can tell those aren't my hands because the nail polish is still intact)


I am about to get on a plane to start my book tour. I am feeling very weird about it. It feels icky and wrong to engage in self-promotion right now. Or even to push humor on people. ("Welp, in other news, my book!" - ugh.) But, two things: 1. I want to fulfill my obligations to be where I said I'd be, and not let anyone down. 2. My goals for this book were to make people laugh, to feel connected to people, and maybe get people to feel more connected to me. This is the final paragraph of my book (which obviously I hadn't planned to share before it was out). I hope it illustrates just how excited I am to spend time with you gorgeous weirdos who are coming out to this tour over the next few weeks. I love you all so much. I have always been just a silly person, peddling my silly wares, and I hope that as I do that over the coming days I get to feel more and more inspired by you. (P.S. those two asterisks do have attached jokes; maybe by the 15th we'll all be ready for a good laugh.) For now, what books are you guys currently reading? X
