After five years of modelling (mostly in New York City), Krysten caught the acting bug and decided to get serious about it. Ritter hired famed acting coach Marjorie Ballentine, and soon scored several small film roles beginning in 2001. While juggling careers as an actor, writer, and musician, Krysten got a big break appearing in All This Intimacy, a popular Off Broadway play.

Ritter soon landed several guest starring spots on television, appearing on the shows; Gilmore Girls, Veronica Mars, and the Fox sitcom 'Til Death. Krysten also co-starred on the second season of AMC's television drama Breaking Bad, and in the 2010 TV series Gravity, the Starz channel's comedy/drama focusing a group of out-patient suicide survivors.

Krysten stars in the 2011 romantic comedy Vamps, (along with Alicia Silverstone), playing a New York City socialite changed into a vampire by a vampire queen (Sigourney Weaver). She will also be seen in the independent comedy BFF & Baby, with Rachel Bilson and Kate Bosworth. Co-written by Ritter with director Kat Coiro, the film is about two best friends coping with the pregnancy and motherhood of Ritter's character. The movie began filming in Los Angeles in late 2010. Krysten made a return to television in Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 as Chloe, a con artist who successfully rips off her new roommate shortly after she moves in with her.

Ritter currently resides in Los Angeles, and when not busy acting, Krysten likes to pursue her "hobby" performing with her band "Ex Vivian".
