Mini Bio (1)

Jennifer Dundas began her career as a child actor, making her Broadway, TV and film debuts at ages 10, 11 and 12. Originally from Newton, MA, she traveled frequently for work as a child, joined by her mother and often her three brothers. After taking time off to attend Brown University, she continued to build a New York-based career that featured mostly stage credits, with recurring television and film roles. She became best-known as Diane Keaton's lesbian daughter, Chris, in "The First Wives Club."

In both film and theatre, Ms Dundas has worked opposite Meryl Streep, Sally Field, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Stockard Channing, Billy Crudup, Annette Bening, Robert Redford, Diane Keaton, Vanessa Redgrave, Jason Robards, Colleen Dewhurst, and many more. In 2007, she went on hiatus from acting to launch Brooklyn-based Blue Marble Organic Ice Cream. In ten years, she built the company from one small storefront to a multi-million-dollar brand available on grocery shelves in 15+ states. She also co-launched a non-profit, Blue Marble Dreams, whose mission is to provide jobs for unemployed women and a safe, happy space for communities in traumatized regions. The first shop, Inzozi Nziza, opened in Rwanda in 2010, and a second location, Bel Rev, opened in Port-au-Prince, Haiti in 2015.

In 2017, she was invited back to acting by Steven Spielberg, who features her as Liz Hylton, personal assistant to Katherine Graham, in The Papers, starring Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks. She was simultaneously cast in The Looming Tower (2018), when writer Dan Futterman requested her to be cast as United States Attorney, Mary Jo White.
