Repertory Player, "Saturday Night Live"
Cecily Strong returns to “Saturday Night Live” for her eighth season.
Strong has entertained viewers with her standout “Weekend Update” character Cathy Anne, Michael Che’s wacky chain-smoking neighbor who offers her opinions on current events. Her recurring character Gemma, a British “singer” with various boyfriends, also quickly became a fan favorite. She has recently earned rave reviews for her notable Jeanine Pirro, Sen. Dianne Feinstein and Melania Trump impressions. Strong has co-hosted “Weekend Update” alongside both Seth Meyers and Colin Jost.
