Biography

Personal life

DuVall was born in Los Angeles, California, the only child of Rosemary (née Hatch) and Stephen DuVall. Her parents divorced when she was 12. After her mother remarried, DuVall dropped out of high school and moved into her own apartment.[1] She sought entertainment in movies and television programs, memorizing entire scenes. DuVall decided she wanted to be an actress, and returned to high school, this time the Los Angeles County High School of the Arts, while working to support herself.[1] She is not related to actors Robert Duvall or Shelley Duvall, who share their surnames with her.[2]

Career

Prior to making her debut in Little Witches, she worked in a coffee shop. DuVall's breakthrough role was in Robert Rodriguez's The Faculty in 1998, alongside Elijah Wood and Josh Hartnett. Roles in Girl Interrupted, The Astronaut's Wife, She's All That, But I'm a Cheerleader, Ghosts of Mars and Thirteen Conversations About One Thing followed.

After appearing in The Laramie Project, Identity and 21 Grams, DuVall starred on HBO's Emmy Award-winning Carnivàle, which ran from 2003–2005. During that time, she also starred in Helter Skelter (which earned her a Satellite Award nomination) and alongside Sarah Michelle Gellar in The Grudge.

Recent projects have included Itty Bitty Titty Committee, David Fincher's Zodiac and a recurring role on NBC's hit series Heroes. In 2008 she appeared alongside Anne Hathaway in Passengers.

In addition, DuVall has directed a short film called It's Not Easy Being Green, starring Leisha Hailey, Carnivàle co-star Carla Gallo and herself.[3] She also took promotional pictures for Uh Huh Her.[4]

Unsourced

  • I'm an only child and I'm just a real loner kind of person, and yeah, kinda dark. But I'm happy. Not sad.
  • I think they think I'm like, James Dean or something. I wish I were, but I'm not.
  • It's not an easy business to break into, but I've been really fortunate. It's still hard to get the parts you want.
  • I got headshots, an agent and started auditioning, but things didn't get really started until I started working with my manager.
  • People are kinda seeing that it is okay to just be attracted to a person and not so much a body. For some people, that is more (honest) than just "gay" or "straight." I think there is an in-between. I think bisexuality is frowned upon for a lot of different reasons. But I don't like any of those words. I don't like any of those labels. I think they're limiting.
