Biography

An exceptionally gifted actress, Evan Rachel Wood specialized in playing girls who had often seen and experienced too much at very early ages. She first gained attention while still in grade school on the cult TV series "American Gothic" (CBS, 1995-96) and "Once And Again" (ABC, 1999-2002), before wowing critics with her portrayal of a young girl who dives headlong into sex and drugs in the disturbing indie drama, "Thirteen" (2003), for which she received a Golden Globe nomination. After that star-making performance, Wood alternated between mainstream Hollywood features and independent productions, though the latter remained her bread and butter with turns in "Down in the Valley" (2006), "Running with Scissors" (2006) and "Across the Universe" (2007). She delivered another sterling performance, this time opposite Mickey Rourke as his estranged daughter in "The Wrestler" (2009), before landing the recurring role of a vampire queen for the second and third seasons of the hit show "True Blood" (HBO, 2008- ). By the time she earned critical applause for "Mildred Pierce" (HBO, 2011), Wood was already well-established as a talented young actress who time and again impressed audiences alike with her mature and complex performances.
