Born and raised in Macon, Georgia, where her mother was an artist and art therapist while her dad was a geo-technical engineer, a young Carrie Preston discovered her true calling in life lay in performing arts. At the age of 12, she became the impresario of her own front-yard theater company as producer, writer, casting director, costumer, director - and of course, actress. Preston later obtained a BFA from the University of Evansville followed with an acting diploma from the prestigious Juilliard School.
It was Preston's breakout Outer Critics Award nominated turn as "Miranda" in George C. Woolf's Broadway production of Shakespeare's The Tempest with Patrick Stewart that led her to her auspicious big screen debut as one of the two sexy, Southern bridesmaid sisters in the Julia Robert's blockbuster My Best Friend's Wedding.
Carrie and Michael travel back and forth between Los Angeles and New York with their adopted dog Chumley.
