Born and raised in Southern California, Anne Ramsay was inspired at an early age by Barbra Streisand’s performance in the feature film Funny Girl, which eventually led her to study theater at UCLA. After graduation, her work in The Continuum, an acting group of fellow UCLA alumni, provided her with her first real break. Their 1987 stage production of Waiting, which she co-wrote, won the group acclaim and Ramsay an agent.
Ramsay went on to star in numerous TV shows and films, most notably Penny Marshall’s A League of Their Own, the NBC hit comedy Mad About You, and Tim Burton’s Planet of the Apes. She has appeared in CSI, Without A Trace, Showtime’s ground-breaking drama The L Word and Dexter, HBO’s distinguished Six Feet Under, Related and Tell Me You Love Me.
She is currently working on two television shows, The Secret Life of the American Teenager and Hawthorne.
