Born in Canandaigua, New York, on August 22, 1973, as Kristen Carroll Wiig, the actress is the daughter of Jon Wiig and Laurie Johnston.
Her father is of Norwegian and Irish descent while her mother, of English and Scottish ancestry, is an artist.
When she was three years old, her family moved to Lancaster, Pennsylvania, where she was enrolled at Nitrauer Elementary School and later, Manheim Township Middle School until 8th grade.
Ten years later, her family relocated again, this time, to Rochester, New York. There, she did her ninth and tenth grades at the prestigious Allendale Columbia School. She eventually graduated from Brighton High School.
Kristen continued her education at Roanoke College in Salem, Virginia, but not long after, she went back to Rochester.
She enrolled in the community college, doing an outdoor-living program that lasted for three months. At this time, Kristen had no intention to become an actor or an entertainer of any sort.
Later on, she was admitted into the University of Arizona, where she majored in fine art. As part of fulfilling the requirement of one of her courses, she had to take an acting class and was encouraged by the teacher to continue acting.
She was supposed to start working at a plastic surgery clinic, drawing pictures of patient’s post-surgery bodies. However, just one day before resuming the job, she decided to go into acting and consequently, moved to Los Angeles.
On getting there, she joined two comedy groups (Empty Stage Comedy Theatre and The Groundlings) while working odd jobs to support herself. She later made her television debut in 2003.
Kristen Wiig made an audition tape which she submitted to Saturday Night Live following the encouragement of her manager and in 2005, she joined the cast of the popular TV show and continued with them until 2012.
Her performance earned her a Primetime Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series (2009 – 2012).
The actress made her film debut in 2006 with the Christmas comedy movie, Unaccompanied Minors and subsequently featured in a series of comedy films such as Adventureland, Whip It, and Paul.
Later in 2011, she co-wrote and starred in Bridesmaids with Annie Mumolo, her fellow Groundlings performer.
The movie was released on May 13, 2011, and it became a hit, garnering an impressive number of nominations, including an Academy Award and BAFTA nominations for Best Original Screenplay. The film also earned Kristen a Golden Globe Awards nomination.
