Michaela Watkins Facts
- Michaela was primarily brought up in DeWitt, New York, a suburb of her hometown of Syracuse. After her parents got divorced, her mother had attained a marketing degree and had moved the family to Boston.
- She was around 15 years old at that time and had auditioned for a part in a British farce at a community theater. She had won the role and that had inspired her to pursue a career in acting in the future.
- After her graduation from Boston University, she had moved to New York City but had struggled to build a career there. A year later, she had shifted to Portland, Oregon, with a friend, and had lived there between 1996 and 2000. During this time, she had appeared on stage with a theater company called Portland Center Stage and the now-defunct improv group Toad City Productions.
- After traveling around the country doing regional theater, she had moved to Los Angeles in 2000 and was active in the city’s theatre scene for several years. She had also become a regular performer at The Groundlings, an improvisational and sketch comedy troupe/school based in Los Angeles, where she was discovered by Saturday Night Live.
- When she had joined the cast of Saturday Night Live in November 2008, she had become the oldest woman that the show had ever hired.
