Annie Milligan was born in Berkeley, California to two lawyers; who are frankly still mystified they gave birth to an artist. Her family moved to Albuquerque, NM when she was a little human and then finally to a small Maryland suburb of Washington, D.C. when she was a slightly larger human. She has one younger brother who laughs when she is the only one carded when they go out.

At an early age she showed enthusiasm for the arts: ballet, gymnastics, painting, drawing and entertaining. In middle school and as a teenager, her love of story-telling kept her immersed in theatre. After graduating high school and at the age of 18, Annie made her way to Los Angeles on a scholarship to attend the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, where she received her Associate's degree and went on to perform in their company the following year.

She clearly takes herself very seriously.
