Born in 1987, DeHaan began making appearances in television projects like the documentary "The Doomsday Flu" (The History Channel, 1998) and shorts while still in his teens. After graduating from the North Carolina School for the Arts, he headed north to New York City, where he made his stage debut as Haley Joel Osment's understudy in a 2008 Broadway production of "American Buffalo." Roles in off-Broadway shows began dropping in his lap while he earned more substantive screen time on "Law and Order: Special Victims Unit" and in TV movies like "The Front" (Lifetime, 2010).
DeHaan's big break came with a seven-episode stint on the third season of "In Treatment." Cast as Jesse, a young gay man struggling with anger towards his adoptive family, DeHaan won praise from critics and audiences alike - most notably from the gay community - for his full-bodied performance, which depicted Jesse as both manipulative and vulnerable. His story arc came to an end when Jesse chose to side with his birth father rather than continue treatment with psychiatrist Paul Weston (Gabriel Byrne). That same year, DeHaan made his feature-film debut in John Sayles' "Amigo" (2011), a period drama set during the Philippine-American war in 1900, and earned an Obie Award for his turn as a teen outcast who befriended two twenty-something slackers in the off-Broadway drama "The Aliens."
The praise that followed DeHaan's performances on "In Treatment" and in "The Aliens" gave his profile a considerable boost, making him an actor to watch. It also improved the material offered to him, and by mid-2011, he was announced as a recurring character - a teenager named Timbo who came under the care of Ryan Kwanten's Jason - on "True Blood" (HBO, 2008- ). That same year, DeHaan was cast as the best friend of LeBeouf's character in "Lawless" (2012), a period drama about bootleggers, and completed a supporting role in "Jack and Diane" (2012), a horror film with lesbian overtones about werewolves. These parts were trumped, however, by a leading role in the fan-favorite "Chronicle" (2012), a tense drama about teen superheroes. DeHaan's moody performance was one of the highlights of movie, and it created even more buzz around the young actor. Later that year, he married "Chronicle" supporting actress Anna Wood.
After a small part in Steven Spielberg's historical epic "Lincoln" (2012), DeHaan played a key part in the expansive yet intimate drama "The Place Beyond the Pines" (2013) as Jason, a restless teenager struggling with the legacy of his biological father. With his career momentum in full swing, DeHaan, then in his late twenties, finally aged out of portraying high schoolers and was featured in the narrative part of the inventive concert film "Metallica: Through the Never" (2013) and co-starred with Daniel Radcliffe in the 1940s-set, Beat-centric drama "Kill Your Darlings" (2013). Perhaps most significantly, he filmed his role as Harry Osborn in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" (2014), playing the same conflicted role that James Franco had in Sam Raimi's earlier "Spider-Man" trilogy.
