Mini Bio (1)

A vibrant, diversely talented, and charming actress, Zoey Deutch is steadily building on her body of work with dynamic roles alongside notable actors and filmmakers.

Deutch co-stars in Richard Linklater's latest film EVERYBODY WANTS SOME!!, a film about a group of college kids navigating their way through the freedoms and responsibilities of unsupervised adulthood. The film, which premiered at the South by Southwest Film Festival, was released by Paramount in April 2016.

Starring opposite Bryan Cranston and James Franco, Deutch's next project is WHY HIM?, a film about an overprotective but loving dad (Cranston) who visits his daughter at Stanford and meets his biggest nightmare: her well-meaning but socially awkward Silicon Valley billionaire boyfriend, Laird (James Franco). Directed by John Hamburg (I LOVE YOU MAN), the film will be released by 20th Century Fox on December 25th.

Deutch is also set to appear in Danny Strong's upcoming film REBEL IN THE RYE opposite Kevin Spacey and Nicholas Hoult. Based on a true story, the film follows author J.D. Salinger (Hoult) as he prepares to write his classic novel, CATCHER IN THE RYE. Deutch will play Oona O'Neill, the daughter of legendary playwright Eugene O'Neill, who has an affair with Salinger.

Deutch appears in VINCENT N ROXXY, a film that follows a small town loner and a rebellious punk rocker as they unexpectedly fall in love and are forced on the run, that had its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival in April 2016. She co-stars in the film opposite Emile Hirsch, Zoe Kravitz and Emory Cohen.

Zoey was also seen in the comedy DIRTY GRANDPA opposite Robert De Niro and Zac Efron. Directed by Dan Mazer, the film centers on a wacky road-trip that unfolds as an uptight man (Efron) is tricked into driving his horny grandfather (De Niro) to Florida for spring break. In 2014, Deutch played the lead role in the Weinstein Company's VAMPIRE ACADEMY. Starring as "Rose Hathaway," the actress' performance as a Dhampir- half human-half vampire, garnered her a Teen Choice Award nomination for Choice Movie Actress: Comedy. In addition, she was featured alongside Viola Davis and Emma Thompson in the film adaptation by Warner Bros. of the best-selling novel BEAUTIFUL CREATURES.

On the independent film front, Deutch has wrapped production on several projects. She stars in BEFORE I FALL for director Ry Russo-Young, the adaptation of the 2010 YA novel by Lauren Oliver for Awesomeness Films. The film centers on "Samantha Kingston" (Deutch), a high school senior who finds that she may be living the last day of her life over and over until she gets it right. In addition, she recently starred opposite her sister Madelyn Deutch in THE YEAR OF SPECTACULAR MEN, which was the feature directorial debut of their mother Lea Thompson, and written by her sister. The film, which follows a young woman (Madelyn Deutch) fresh out of college as she strikes up and torches relationships with several men, shows Deutch in a contrasting role as the movie star sister with a loving boyfriend (Avan Jogia). She stars alongside Julia Garner, Nicholas Braun, and Dayo Okeniyi in the comedy GOOD KIDS, which tells the story of four overachieving high-school students living in Cape Cod who decide to reinvent themselves following graduation. The script, written by Chris McCoy, made the 2011 Black List.

Deutch first became known for her role as "Maya" on Disney channel's THE SUITE LIFE ON DECK, which earned her further roles as a rising star in Hollywood. She also starred as "Juliet Martin," Sarah Michelle Gellar's troubled stepdaughter, in the CW's RINGER. Committed to several charitable causes, Deutch is a strong supporter of the Corazon De Vida Orphanage in Tijuana, and has performed for The Alzheimer's Association, What A Pair, and Race to Erase MS benefits.

Personal Quotes (3)

I just want to keep working. I'm lucky to be working. I'm kind of exhausted by the constant need to brand yourself-that's a very prevalent way of living as an actor nowadays. I don't want to be pigeonholed, I don't want people to look at me and see one thing. I don't want to be a thing. I want to be a human.
The term 'free-range' doesn't do them justice. They're more like free-spirit chickens. I go down to the barn every morning with my coffee and hang out with them.
It feels strange, and false, to be 21, and talk about myself as if I have a real concept of who I am.
