Cecily Strong is primarily famous for her performances on the TV show Saturday Night Live, where she’s been a stable presence since 2014. You can see a selection of her best performances in the show below, selected by Mojo.
Cecily Strong also played in 2016’s movie Ghostbusters as Jennifer Lynch (did you recognize her?). She also offered her voice for many roles in The Awesomes, from 2013 to 2015, and she’s in 2021’s musical TV show Schmigadoon! Among their future roles, we will have the chance to hear her voice again in the animated movie Garfield which will be released in 2024.
