Biography

Enfance et formation
Elle est la fille de Donna (née Mayock) et de Harold Panabaker. Elle est la sœur de Kay Panabaker, ancienne actrice devenue zoologue. Son surnom est Grâce. Le patriarche de la famille travaillant dans la vente, les filles grandissent aux quatre coins des États-Unis.

Elle a découvert qu'elle aimait jouer après avoir pris un cours de théâtre dans un camp d'études, puis s'est ensuite impliquée dans le théâtre communautaire. Dans les différentes écoles qu'elle fréquente, elle s'inscrit à plusieurs clubs de rhétorique afin d'améliorer son élocution.

Persuadée que s'installer à Los Angeles est l'unique moyen de se consacrer à sa carrière d'actrice, elle s'y installe accompagnée de sa sœur et de leur mère. Elle termine son lycée en Californie alors qu'elle n'a que 14 ans.

Elle obtient son Bachelor of Arts (équivalent à une licence), avec les honneurs du camp professoral, à l'UCLA en juin 2007, à l'âge de 19 ans.


Carrière
Débuts et révélation (années 2000)
Au début de sa carrière, elle participe à diverses publicités et enchaîne les apparitions à la télévision dans des séries télévisées installées telles que Malcolm, The Bernie Mac Show, Les Experts, ou encore Le Protecteur qui lui permet de remporter le Young Artist Awards de la meilleure performance par une jeune actrice invitée dans une série télévisée. Cette première reconnaissance la propulse et lui apporte une certaine notoriété.
C'est ainsi qu'elle occupe, par la suite, le premier rôle dans plusieurs productions Disney Channel, les téléfilms La Naissance d'une nouvelle star et Le Journal de Jaimie ainsi que la comédie d'aventure L'École fantastique.

A la même période, elle joue dans la mini-série plébiscitée par la critique, Empire Falls ainsi que dans la comédie familiale de Raja Gosnell, Une famille 2 en 1. Très active, elle est aussi à l'affiche d'Un cœur pour David, téléfilm dramatique produit par ABC Family, qui lui vaut son second prix lors des Young Artist Awards 2005.

Elle poursuit en vedette d'unitaire comme dans Trop jeune pour être mère avec Jane Krakowski et apparaît aux côtés de sa sœur, dans deux épisodes de la série Summerland avant d'être engagée par le réseau CBS pour jouer la fille de James Woods dans la série judiciaire Shark, entre 2006 et 2008.

Parallèlement à ce premier rôle régulier d'envergure, elle joue dans le film Mr. Brooks avec Kevin Costner, un thriller ayant remporté le prix du public au Festival du film policier de Cognac et elle est l'une des têtes d'affiche de la comédie dramatique Home of the Giants aux côtés d'un autre enfant star, Haley Joel Osment et de Ryan Merriman.

En 2009, elle est à l'affiche du film d'horreur Vendredi 13, réalisé par Marcus Nispel. Il s'agit du remake du classique de l'épouvante Vendredi 13, le 12e épisode de la saga, qui a commencé en 1980 et dont le dernier film de 2002 a été Freddy contre Jason. Le film est un succès aux box-office.


Emancipation au cinéma et succès télévisuels (années 2010)

En 2010, elle poursuit dans le même registre en étant à l'affiche de deux productions horrifique : The Crazies, remake du film La Nuit des fous vivants, sorti en 1973 et réalisé par George A. Romero. Cette fois-ci, le long métrage est réalisé par Breck Eisner et lui permet de donner la réplique aux acteurs Timothy Olyphant et Radha Mitchell ainsi que Joe Anderson. Et elle joue sous la direction de John Carpenter dans The Ward : L'Hôpital de la terreur évoluant aux côtés d'Amber Heard, Mamie Gummer et Lyndsy Fonseca. Cette production est cependant laminée par la critique.

La même année, l'actrice va également multiplier les apparitions isolées dans plusieurs séries télévisées (Grey's Anatomy, Médium, Los Angeles, police judiciaire, Chase, Memphis Beat).

En 2011, elle est la vedette du téléfilm Katie, bannie des siens réalisé par Michael Landon Jr. pour Hallmark Channel, qui est un succès. Elle devait reprendre son rôle dans la suite, L'Héritage de Katie, en 2013, mais un conflit d'emploi du temps l'oblige à abandonner et c'est alors l'actrice Katie Leclerc qui lui succède.

En 2012, au cinéma, elle persiste dans le registre de l'horreur en étant à l'affiche de la grosse production Piranha 3D ainsi que de la plus discrète Girls Against Boys.


Côté télévision, elle joue un petit rôle récurrent dans La Diva du divan et apparaît, les années qui suivent, dans Grimm, Bones, Mad Men, Justified ainsi que Franklin and Bash. A la même période, elle est toujours vedette dès qu'il s'agit de téléfilms, en étant notamment dirigée par Kevin Hooks et Ron Oliver pour Intercept et Une passion à 3 étoiles. En 2014, elle porte le film de science-fiction Time Lapse, récompensé lors de nombreux festivals du cinéma indépendant. Cette année-là, elle intègre l'univers télévisuel DC Comics en décrochant le rôle de Killer Frost pour la série télévisée Arrow. Elle apparaît dans quelques épisodes avant de devenir l'un des personnages principaux de The Flash. Ce personnage l'installe à nouveau sur le petit écran et lui permet de s'essayer à la réalisation, notamment lors de la saison 5 de Flash.
Grâce à ce rôle, elle est aussi proposée, pendant plusieurs années (2015-2016-2017-2018-2019), pour le Teen Choice Awards de la meilleure actrice dans une série télévisée et elle apparaît dans les séries appartenant au même univers comme Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl ou encore Freedom Fighters: The Ray.

En 2018, elle est la vedette d'un téléfilm Hallmark Channel sur le thème de Noël, Christmas Joy.

Finn (Matt O'Leary) is a painter with a creative block, who lives together with his girlfriend Callie (Danielle Panabaker) and his best friend Jasper (George Finn) in an apartment complex where Finn works as a manager. Because the elderly tenant, Mr. Bezzerides (informally called "Mr. B" by the protagonists), across the way has not paid his rent in two months, Callie goes to check on him, and discovers a strange machine in his apartment that takes Polaroid photos of their living room's picture window—apparently 24 hours in the future, always at 8 pm, although Mr. B's photo display includes daytime photos. The friends check Mr. B's storage unit and find his inexplicably charred corpse; he has apparently been dead for a week. Gambling addict Jasper pushes to use the machine to win bets, as he usually loses, and the next day's photo confirms they will do just that. It also shows that Finn has finally created a new painting; copying the work in the photo gets him past his block. Based on what happened to Mr. B and notes in his journal, they realize they have to make sure the events in the photos—whatever they may be—have to occur, or their timeline will stop, and they will therefore cease to be.
