The Arizona native moved out to Los Angeles at age 16 to dance after convincing her parents with a poster board presentation. It didn’t take long for her to make the leap to acting full time, quickly graduating from made-for-TV movies to more high-brow fare like The Edge of Seventeen, Split and Support the Girls. She was nominated for a Gotham Independent Film Award in 2017 for her breakout performance in Columbus. Next, she’ll reteam with director Kogonada for his new film After Yang starring Colin Farrell and front Unpregnant with Ferreira.
