Anna said in an interview that when she was six, her parents encouraged her to act in a community drama class for children. She described “her parents as “ultra-liberal” and said that she and her siblings grew up in an irreligious environment”.

She was interested in watching plays and eventually produced her material in her bedroom with her neighborhood friends.


If we talk about her education, Anna Faris attended Edmonds Woodway High School. While studying, she performed onstage with a Seattle repertory company and in nationally broadcast radio plays. She participated in school, “a drama club dork,” and used to wear a Christmas tree skirt.

She recalled that “she was rolling in the dough.” Then, she performed in many theatre productions, including Rain, Some Fish, No Elephants, and Life Under Water.

Moreover, Anna appeared in a high school TV commercial for a frozen yoghurt brand and in a training video for Red Robin. Then she said, “I play, like, the perfect hostess. And I think they still use it.”

In her early acting career, she later briefed roles in the made-for-TV film industry. Her first significant role in the film came shortly after college, in the independent slasher Lovers Lane, where she performed as an ill-fated cheerleader.
