Most film buffs associate actress Anna Chlumsky of VEEP with the little girl Vada in the sweet 1991 film My Girl. She was the most adorable girl on film that year. After taking time away, an adult Chlumsky returned to acting and has made memorable appearances on TV shows including 30 Rock, Hannibal and now VEEP. For her role as Amy Brookheimer, the vice-president’s trouble-shooter, Chlumsky has been nominated for an Emmy (Outstanding Supporting Actress).
When not on the set of VEEP with Julia Louis-Dreyfus (who plays the vice-president), Chlumsky’s been busy working the independent film circuit. She stars in Floating Sunflowers, the debut short film (12 minutes) produced by Barefoot Theatre Company, of which Chlumsky is a member. She plays June, a still-life painter in New York City who’s a little down in creative spirit until she meets a writer named Henry.
