Allison Janney

Allison Janney is an American actress born in Dayton, Ohio, who studied at Kenyon College where she studied under Paul Newman.  Janney pursued acting partially due to Newman’s encouragement, going on to study drama at the Neighborhood Playhouse and the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art.    Janney is best known for her role as White House Press Secretary (and later Chief of Staff) C.J. Cregg on the television series The West Wing.  Janney’s portrayal of Cregg earned her multiple awards, including four Primetime Emmy Awards and seven Screen Actors Guild Awards, among many others.   Prior to West Wing-fame, Janney performed in numerous American films and soap operas, including American Beauty, As The World Turns, and 10 Things I Hate About You.  Following her considerable television success, Janney has gone on to star in numerous critically acclaimed movies and television programs. She remains active in theatre and often works with fellow West Wing alums.
