Her story so far (until 1993)


Anna Chlumsky recreates the role of the irresistable Vada Sultenfuss in 'My

Girl 2'. Prior to making her film debut in 'My Girl' at the age of 10, Anna

was one of more than 1.000 young hopefuls vying for the title role. A video

audition submitted to director Howard Zieff by the David and Lee Talent

Agency in Chicago led Zieff to travel to the Windy City to audition Anna

personally. She was then flown to Hollywood for a screen test with her

future leading man, box-office champ Macaulay Culkin.


Anna was born on December 3, 1980 and appeared in her first magazine ad at

the tender age of 10 months. Since that time she has worked regularly as a

photographic model, as an actress in local and national television

commercials and industrial films and on the Chicago stage in 'Annie' (first

as Mollie, then tessie, during 166 performances of the musical). Subsequent

to filming 'My Girl,' Anna hit the boards once again as 'Amaryllis' in a

Chicago production of 'The Music Man'. Prior to filming 'My Girl 2', Anna

starred with Sissy Spacek in the film 'The Mommy Market," due for release in

early 1994.


In addition to her schooling, where she excels in creative writing, English

and German (her favourite subject), 13-year-old Anna has kept busy playing

'Mama' in a school production of 'Bye Bye Birdie' and studying a variety of

performing arts, including singing, ballet, tap, piano and clarinet.
