Biography

The daughter of a soulful rocker and a Cosby kid, Zoe Kravitz possessed the makings of a Hollywood star roughly from birth. Yet while she could have easily taken the child actor route, Kravitz studied her craft and honed her skills with offbeat and emotionally charged roles in independent films. In one of her first acting roles, she proved she could hold her own opposite Jodie Foster in the Neil Jordan-directed revenge drama "The Brave One." Kravitz, who was also an accomplished model and musician, stretched her acting muscles with a part in the quirky drama, "It's Kind of a Funny Story" (2010), a film that followed the patients of a psychiatric hospital. After several years appearing in art house projects, Kravitz landed a featured part in "X-Men: First Class" (2011), a superhero epic that had all the spectacle and buzz of a blockbuster, yet still showcased the actress' raw talent, alluring personality and potential for a long-standing career in entertainment.
