|Full name:||Zoey Francis Thompson Deutch|
|Born:||November 10, 1994|

Performing has always been in her genes going back for two generations. She grew up in Los Angeles with her parents, actress Lea Thompson and director Howard Deutch. As a child she often played scenes with her Barbie dolls, acting them out and crying when Barbie was down on her luck. Zoey was always a serious dancer; she learned ballet, competitive jazz, and tap. At the age of 15, she had already landed comedy and drama roles in both film and television. She was a double major in both theatre and visual arts at Los Angeles County High School for the Arts. Zoey's first lead role was in Mayor Cupcake. She played the daughter to her real-life mother. Zoey's character was a small town girl, with big time political aspirations. She was quickly picked up on Disney Channel's Suite Life On Deck, where she played the main character's, Zach's, love interest. From there she gained fans from all over the world, guest staring in Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior and NCIS, which lead her to landing a role in Hallelujah. Although the show wasn't picked up, she bounced back, landing a role of a troubled stepdaughter and step niece, Juliet Martin, On CW's Ringer. In 2012, she finished working on Beautiful Creatures, which is also a book-to-film adaption, which was released in 2013. She appeared in two episodes of the second season of ABC Family's series, Switched At Birth, which centers around two girls, one deaf and poor, the other rich and quick-witted, and how they deal with being switched at birth. Her Mother happens to be one of the shows stars.
