Who Is Ellie Kemper?
Ellie Kemper, who portrays title character Kimmy Schmidt, first showed up in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch back in 1996 in a story of the Villa Duchesne field hockey team. She would go on to attend Princeton University and play field hockey there,
Kemper was back in the St. Louis newspaper when she was crowned the Queen of Love and Beauty at the 1999 Veiled Prophet Ball. Ten years later, an audition for Parks and Recreation led to a spot on The Office.
After more than 100 episodes as a supporting player on The Office, Kemper got her first starring role in 2014 when she was cast in a new comedy from Tina Fey and Robert Carlock. Originally, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt was to air on NBC. A deal was made in late 2014, however, to move the show to Netflix.
Season 4 Of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
Would Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt have lasted on NBC? Who knows. This Washington Post writer would probably say no. This Vulture writer would probably say that the show would’ve met with a undeserved quick death at NBC.
In season 3 of Unbreakable, Kimmy went to college. In season 4, she starts her job.
Tituss Burgess is back as Titus Andromedon. Caarol Kane is back as Lillian Kaushtupper and Jane Krakowski is back as Jacqueline White. The gang won’t be together much longer, but they are together now for your enjoyment.
