Anna Ragsdale Camp[4] (born September 27, 1982) is an American stage and television actress. She is known for her role as Jill Mason in the 2008 Broadway revival of Equus and as Sarah Newlin in the second and sixth seasons[5] of True Blood.

Early life[edit]

Career[edit]

Camp played the role of Perfect in columbinus in 2005. She played Jill Mason in the 2008 Broadway revival of Equus at the Broadhurst Theatre, which starred Daniel Radcliffe as Alan Strang. Speaking about the role, Camp said, "I had a lot of thought; I didn't even know if I was going to do Equus because of the nudity and because of the high profile [aspect] of it. But you only live once and you have to take those risks because you'll only be a better person or actor because of it."[12]

Anna appeared in Reinventing the Wheelers, a 2007 television pilot which was not ordered to series by ABC.[13] In 2008 she had a role in the pilot of the ABC television dramedy Cashmere Mafia.[14] She had a starring role as Sarah Newlin in the second season of the HBO supernatural drama series True Blood, which earned her a nomination for a SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series; Camp had earlier auditioned for the role of Sookie Stackhouse.[12]

She has made guest appearances on The Office (2009), Glee (2009), Numb3rs (2010), and Covert Affairs (2010). She has had recurring roles in the fourth season of the AMC drama series Mad Men (2010) and the third season of the CBS legal drama series The Good Wife (2011–2012) and How I Met Your Mother (2013).

In 2011, she starred in the premiere of All New People, a play written by Zach Braff and staged at Second Stage Theatre;[15] the production was directed by Peter DuBois and also starred Justin Bartha, David Wilson Barnes and Krysten Ritter.[16]

Camp has a starring role in the Fox sitcom The Mindy Project, and played Aubrey Posen in the 2012 musical comedy film Pitch Perfect.
