Biography

Elle est révélée à l'âge de 18 ans en jouant Tammy dans le film d'horreur 28 semaines plus tard, après seulement un petit rôle dans le blockbuster V pour Vendetta.

Elle poursuit dans des rôles secondaires : en 2008 dans la comédie dramatique Me and Orson Welles de Richard Linklater ; puis en 2009 dans le thriller Cracks de Jordan Scott mené par Eva Green, suivi du drame romantique Solitary Man co-écrit et réalisé par Brian Koppelman, avec Michael Douglas dans le rôle-titre.

En 2010, elle joue dans le drame Waking Madison, puis fait surtout ses premiers pas dans une grosse production avec le péplum Centurion de Neil Marshall. La même année, elle joue dans le thriller horrifique Chatroom avec Aaron Johnson.

L'année d'après, elle tient le rôle de Blanche Ingram dans une nouvelle adaptation de Jane Eyre, et celui d'Amy Peterson dans la production américaine Fright Night, aux côtés d'Anton Yelchin et de Colin Farrell.

Elle devient cette même année l'égérie du parfum Chloé aux côtés du mannequin français Camille Rowe-Pourcheresse, succédant ainsi à Clémence Poésy, Chloë Sevigny et Anja Rubik .En 2012, elle tourne dans une publicité pour H&M réalisée par Sofia Coppola.

En 2013, elle apparait dans une poignée de films : les comédies britanniques Ordure et A Very Englishman de Michael Winterbottom ; puis le biopic musical All Is by My Side, écrit et réalisé par John Ridley, et enfin la comédie romantique américaine Célibataires... ou presque , où elle a pour partenaire le jeune Zac Efron.

En 2014, elle confirme à Hollywood en tenant le premier rôle féminin du film d'action Need for Speed de Scott Waugh, où elle donne cette fois la réplique à Aaron Paul. Elle retrouve l'acteur pour la comédie A Long Way Down, mis en scène par le français Pascal Chaumeil.

Elle revient l'année d'après à un cinéma plus adulte : en étant à l'affiche de Broadway Therapy, comédie dramatique new-yorkaise signée Peter Bogdanovich, et du drame Knight of Cups de Terrence Malick. Ce deux projets lui donnent la possibilité d'être dirigée par des cinéastes reconnus et de donner la réplique à des stars. Cette même année, elle tient enfin ses premiers rôles : celui du film d'horreur Green Room et du thriller Frank & Lola.

Elle sera aussi partie du casting de la première série télévisée de Cameron Crowe, attendue pour 2016.
