You must have heard of the adage 'Always a bridesmaid, never a bride'. This applied to Krysten Ritter but in a slightly modified way – 'Always the best friend, never the lead'. Krysten who celebrates her birthday today was first spotted at a mall by a modelling agent, she got her first break at the age of 15. Life has not been easy for her though, as she had to go through a lot of blink-and-miss appearances in movies and TV before being recognized for her talents and be assured, she is brimming with it.
Krysten is a writer who has co-written the 2011 movie Life Happens and she is also a part of a band called Ex Vivian as a vocalist, songwriter and guitarist.
Jessica Jones has given her the much-deserved spotlight worldwide and her role as the titular character is worlds apart from what we have seen her do before. She usually chose to play light bubbly characters who were sometimes airheads but her role in Jessica Jones got everyone to take notice and take her seriously as a performer. If you still are thinking where you have seen her before, here are six movies where she made an appearance.
She played the receptionist at the office where Katherine Heigl's character works and she also has a goth-themed wedding, one of the many that were shown in the movie.
