After scoring her first professional acting job at age 16, Funke has appeared in critically acclaimed productions such as the off-Broadway hit “Punk Rock”; starred opposite Jake Gyllenhall in the Roundabout Theater’s “If There Is I Haven’t Found It Yet”; and was cast last July in the CBS crime drama “Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders,” which has been picked up for a second season. Funke credits her education in the A. Max Weitzenhoffer School of Musical Theatre, and the completion of her BFA, as a compelling factor in her professional success.
This past spring, Annie was awarded the Regents' Alumni Award, to recognize her dedication and service to the University of Oklahoma.
