Angela Trimbur is an American actress, comedian and dancer. She is best known for her role as Isabel in "Trash Fire" starring opposite Adrian Grenier, Tina the wild 80's party camp counselor in the horror comedy film The Final Girls (2015), and Penny Whitewall on FXX's animated series Major Lazer. She has also had roles in the films Halloween II (2009) and The Kings of Summer (2013).
Trimbur was born in Bucks County, Pennsylvania on July 19th. She attended Neshaminy High School in Langhorne, Pennsylvania, and graduated in 1999. Prior to attending high school, Trimbur was homeschooled. She grew up a Jehovah's Witness, though she has stated she no longer practices the religion. Trimbur is a member of the Los Angeles-based basketball team Pistol Shrimps, alongside actress Aubrey Plaza. 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.
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 under Robert Carnegie at Playhouse West, founded by Sanford Meisner, and improv at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in Los Angeles, founded by Amy Poehler, Matt Walsh, Ian Roberts, and Matt Besser. 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, which was directed by Mary Elizabeth Ellis. She then co-starred in the drama film The Future (2011) directed by Miranda July, and the comedy-drama The Kings of Summer (2013), directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts.
In 2015, Trimbur gained praise for her supporting role as Tina in Todd Strauss-Schulson's horror comedy The Final Girls. 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.
