I was born in Caracas, Venezuela. My family came to the US when I was 8. Before graduating high school, I had managed to attend 5 different high schools, lived in Germany for a year and inherited a sweet Fiero (the poor man's version of a Delorian) from my older brother. I was a military brat by proxy (cough, cough *child of divorce*).
I tried to be a good immigrant and go to college. I graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill and got a job in Advertising (thanks Amanda Woodward from Melrose Place for the career path).
I was big pimpin' working for Cartoon Network before I told myself: "Hey! Remember how you wanted to be an artist? Why don't you say we go for broke!" And I did. Literally went broke. I quit my cushy job to attend the Maggie Flanigan Studio in NYC.
And because being broke didn't feel right until I was drowning in debt, I got my MFA in Drama from the University of Washington. Yay me! Now I live in LA but I still got my NY edge (cough, cough *I can play "urban"*)

"Anna LaMadrid plays naive Lizette in one of the funniest performances ever played on a theater stage
....LaMadrid's performance was a standout...plays her role perfectly as the sassy yet vulnerable Lizette and had the audience waiting for her next scene on stage again. "
-Discover Hollywood Magazine (Fixed)
LaMadrid's comic timing and delivery of double entendres energizing her scenes as Jamie...simply stunning”
Lizette (the deliciously quirky LaMadrid once again proving herself one of the year’s brightest discoveries)..."
Ultimately, however, it is LaMadrid as the loose-lipped Betty 3 who, bitten by the theater bug, keeps the laughs coming and steals the show.”
