Anastasia Griffith Introduction
Anastasia Griffith is a British actress best known for her role as Katie Connor on the FX legal drama Damages.
Anastasia Griffith Career
Griffith's on-screen acting debut was in a minor role in the 2004 made-for-television movie She's Gone. Also in 2004, she appeared in more prominent roles in the television movie Dirty Filthy Love, the comedy film Alfie and the short film Turn, as well as featuring in The Headsman and guest-starring on the British comedy The Worst Week of My Life in 2005.
Griffith won her role as Katie Connor on the 2007 television series Damages after taking a last-minute audition a month after she moved to New York City. The role saw her with an imitated American accent; she says "[the producers] were a little concerned at first about a Brit playing an American, especially because they already had an Australian (Rose Byrne) playing an American," and so she addressed them in an American accent from beginning to end of the audition. The series has been booked for a second and third season and Todd A. Kessler, one of the show's creators/executive producers, has confirmed that Griffith will be returning in the role of Katie for the show's second season.
More recently, she has guest-starred in an episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, and guest-starred in the television series New Amsterdam's second episode, "Golden Boy". She also plans to re-enter theatre as she says she has been "traditionally trained" at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art.
She also plays Liz on the BBC's online videogame/drama, CDX. In the Fall of 2009 Anastasia starred on the television series "Trauma."
Anastasia Griffith Personal life
Born in Paris, France to an Irish mother and American father, Griffith was raised in West London with six older brothers, one of whom is actor Jamie Bamber. She said that, growing up, although he had many opportunities, acting grabbed his attention, as it did hers, but it was her father who thought it as more fitting for a daughter to pursue an acting career than a son and did not trust the world of acting.
She completed a degree in the History of Art at the University of Bristol, but later trained at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art before moving into acting.
