An acclaimed actress and social activist, Camryn Manheim is best known for her Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning role on The Practice. Currently, she stars opposite Halle Berry in the CBS series Extant from executive producer Steven Spielberg.

Manheim’s fierce determination to defy the beauty myth and casting stereotypes on- and off-screen has resulted in one of Hollywood’s most remarkable success stories. Her New York Timesbestseller, Wake Up I’m Fat!, detailed her life with candor and humor.

Manheim was named one of the “Most Intriguing People” by People magazine and “Woman of the Year” by Glamour. Always passionate, she reminds us that life is not a dress rehearsal and to get the part, you must first believe in yourself.
