Mary Elizabeth Winstead born November 28, 1984 (age 32), in Rocky Mount, North Carolina, United States. She is popular American actress and singer. Winstead appeared in a production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat starring Donny Osmond. After her brief performance in that show, Winstead began making appearances in various television series and earned guest roles in Touched by an Angel and Promised Land. She gained her first major role as Jessica Bennett in the NBC soap opera Passions, from 1999 to 2000. She left to pursue other interests, later stating, “I really had one of the smallest roles on Passions, so I didn’t get too involved… I was able to leave pretty easily.”.
Following a minor role in the indie comedy Checking Out (2005), she took on a larger role as a school senior turned the main antagonist in the Walt Disney Pictures film Sky High, about an airborne school for teenage superheroes. Winstead said of her role, “I bounced around. I was either the hero of the sidekicks or the sidekick to the heroes.”.
She starred in the 2006 horror movie Final Destination 3 (which Wong directed and Morgan produced) as lead character Wendy Christensen.
Winstead has expressed her interest in singing, but initially did not plan on pursuing it as a career. “I wasn’t ever really going to be a singer, but it’s just something I’ve always loved.” For her part in 2007’s Death Proof, Tarantino had Winstead sing an a cappella cover of The Shirelles hit recording Baby It’s You. She was asked without warning to perform the song and the cast were reportedly “gob-smacked” by her singing. Winstead and music producer Thai Long Ly eventually co-wrote a song, called Warmth of Him. Although first rumored to be a pre-release single, Winstead confirmed that she was just exploring her interest and did not plan at the time on releasing any music albums.
