Bryce Dallas Howard
Bryce Dallas Howard has quickly become one of Hollywood’s most versatile and dynamic young talents both on screen and behind the camera. In 2011, Howard starred in three of the year’s most celebrated films including critically lauded award-winning screen adaption of Kathryn Stockett’s bestselling novel “The Help”; Clint Eastwood’s “Hereafter” co-starring Matt Damon; and “50/50” opposite Seth Rogen and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. She also co-wrote and executive produced the Sony Classics indie film “Restless” starring Mia Wasikowska and Henry Hopper with director Gus Van Sant. “Restless” premiered in competition at the prestigious 2011 Sundance Film Festival and was also featured as part of the 2011 Toronto Film Festival official selection.
Bryce’s other film credits include “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse; The Loss Of A Teardrop Diamond”; McG’s “Terminator Salvation”; Sam Raimi’s “Spider Man 3”; M. Night Shyamalan’s “Lady In The Water”; and Lars von Trier’s “Manderlay.” Bryce made her film debut in M. Night Shyamalan’s “The Village” opposite Adrien Brody, Joaquin Phoenix and Sigourney Weaver. She also received a 2008 Golden Globe nomination for her performance as Rosalind in HBO’s adaptation of Shakespeare’s “As You Like It”, written and directed by Kenneth Branagh.
Howard made her 2006 directorial debut with the short film “Orchids.” Several years later, she collaborated with Canon and producer/director Ron Howard to direct her second short film “When You Find Me” as part of Canon’s innovative and inaugural “Project Imagin8ion” campaign. Both Bryce and Ron return in 2013 to “Project Imagin8ion” for a new collaborative series of short films to premiere this summer.
After leaving the Tisch School of the Arts program at New York University, Howard immediately began working on the New York stage, including playing the role of ‘Marianne’ in the Roundabout’s Broadway production of “Tartuffe”, ‘Rosalind’ in the Public Theatre’s “As You Like It”, 'Sally Platt' in the Manhattan Theater Club’s production of Alan Ayckbourn’s “House/Garden” and as 'Emily' in the Bay Street Theater Festival production of “Our Town.”
Bryce currently resides in Los Angeles with her husband, Seth Gabel, and their two children.
