Missi Pyle has appeared in roles both large and small in some of Hollywood's more popular movies. Born Aschley Kay Pyle, her parents dubbed her 'Little Missi', a nickname that stuck throughout her life and career. She grew up in Houston, Texas, but moved to Germantown, Tennessee at the age of 12 with her mom and new stepfather. Around this time, Pyle became interested in acting and attended Germantown High School, one of the top three performing arts high schools in the country. Thus a career was born.
