Hollywood star Mary Elizabeth Ellis got her acting beginnings in the mid-2000s. Her first roles were in the shows Cracking Up and Reno 911!. Shortly after, she landed the role of The Waitress in the comedy series It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. The show has since become one of the longest-running comedies on television, gaining her mainstream attention. While on the series, she has also starred in the short-lived show Perfect Couples, as well as played the recurring role of Caroline in New Girl.
She also had notable guest appearances in the shows Up All Night and Happy Endings. From 2015 to 2016, she starred as Debbie Sanderson in the series The Grinder. As of present, she also has a recurring character in the Netflix series Santa Clarita Diet as Lisa Palmer. In the movies, she has roles in the films A Quiet Little Marriage, The Truth About Lies, Free State of Jones, The Last Time You Had Fun, and Masterminds.
The 39-year-old actress stays in shape by eating right and staying active. Most of the time, she stays active by exercising. However, she also admits that finding the motivation to go to the gym can also be tough. When she gave birth in 2011, one of the things she did to lose her post-baby weight was to simply become a mom. According to her, breastfeeding made weight loss easier. “I think breastfeeding is part of what helped me lose my baby weight. I just dump it all into my chubby little son,” she said.
When it comes to her workout routine, the actress loves yoga. She said: “I love yoga, so I’ve had a lot of teachers. It was fun to tap into a few of them when figuring out Georgia’s energy. I do wish I had been in better shape at the time. A few months post-baby is not the easiest time to pull out your best yoga poses.”
