Personal life[edit]

Trimbur was born in Bucks County, Pennsylvania on July 19. She attended Neshaminy High School in Langhorne, Pennsylvania, and graduated in 1999. Prior to attending high school, Trimbur was homeschooled.[1] She grew up a Jehovah's Witness, though she has stated she no longer practices the religion.[1] Trimbur is a member of the Los Angeles-based basketball team Pistol Shrimps, alongside actress Aubrey Plaza.[2] She created the LA City Municipal Dance Squad, a team of dancers to perform halftime show for the Los Angeles Women's Community Basketball pickup league.

In July 2018, Trimbur was diagnosed with breast cancer.[3]

Career[edit]

Before acting, Trimbur was a contestant on the thirteenth season of MTV's Road Rules: X-Treme. She was a replacement for Kina Dean, and went on to help her team win the Final Reward. It was revealed in the "Stunt School" challenge that Trimbur wanted to be an actress. She also participated in the Real World/Road Rules Challenge: Battle of the Sexes 2.

Trimbur began her acting career training in scene study at Sanford Meisner's Playhouse West, and improv at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in Los Angeles. She has guest starred in episodes of Entourage, Workaholics, Californication, Anger Management, Hand of God, and CSI: Cyber.

Trimbur starred as Harley David in the slasher horror Halloween II. The following year, she portrayed the supporting role of Sassy in the 2010 comedy film Freak Dance (2010). Also in 2010, Trimbur debuted an autobiographical show at the Los Angeles Upright Citizens Brigade Theater on her childhood titled Trapped: Life As A Homeschooled Jehovah's Witness. She then co-starred in the drama film The Future (2011), and the comedy-drama The Kings of Summer (2013). In 2012, she played Cleopatra in the YouTube series Epic Rap Battles of History.

In 2015, Trimbur gained praise for her supporting role as Tina in the horror comedy The Final Girls.[4] On April 28, 2015, Comedy Central bought an untitled comedy series created by Trimbur, Amanda Lund, and Maria Blasucci, which focuses on a misfit, all-female basketball team in Los Angeles.[5] As of August 2018, Trimbur and Blasucci have appeared in the 2016 documentary film The Pistol Shrimps, about the actual recreational basketball team of the same name, but no further news regarding the possible Comedy Central series is available.
