Date of Birth : Oct 31st 1980
Armstrong was born in Tokyo, Japan to a Scottish father, Hunter Armstrong, and an Italian mother, Sylvia. Her mother designs spas for resorts and her father teaches soldiers close combat training. Armstrong lived in Japan for several years, before moving to Hawaii and later Sedona, Arizona where she grew up and attended Sedona Red Rock High School. She has also lived in Malaysia and China. She attended the University of Arizona for a year to major in costume design and theatre, but dropped out because of the school drama department’s policy of barring freshmen from involvement in productions. After her departure from school, she moved to Los Angeles.
Armstrong’s first major break into film was as one of the conjoined twins, the Fratelli sisters, in the parody movie Not Another Teen Movie, as well as the teen movie It’s a Boy Girl Thing in which she played a studious art-lover, Nell. However, she may be best known for her recurring role as Anna Stern in Fox’s popular drama The O.C.. She was initially only hired to appear in one episode. However, her popular portrayal of the character led to her return for several more episodes of the series due to the request of fans.
