Biography

Growing up in a public housing complex with a mentally ill mother, Australia-born Teresa Palmer never set her sights on a professional acting career. It wasn't until a student director discovered her headshot on a website, thus casting her as a suicidal teenager in his film, "2:37" (2006), that Palmer's life would forever change. Less than a decade since making her feature film debut in "2:37," Palmer has worked with some of the biggest names in Hollywood, including Adam Sandler, Nicolas Cage, and director Terrence Malick. With a wide-ranging career spanning everything from spectacular sci-fi films, to small, character-driven indies, Teresa Palmer quickly established herself as one of the most successful actresses to come out of Australia in a generation.

"I am trying not to listen to the hype or listen to my own media because you can't go through it like that. You never know when the next up-and-comers will be in the spotlight so people forget you. There are no guarantees.'' -- from The Daily Telegraph, December 21, 2008
