Bryce Dallas Howard (born March 2, 1981) is an American film actress, director, producer, and writer. Howard attended New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, but would ultimately leave before graduating to take on roles on Broadway. During a performance of As You Like It where Howard portrayed Rosalind, she caught the attention of director M. Night Shyamalan, and he cast her in what would be her breakout film, the psychological thriller The Village (2004) and then in the fantasy thriller Lady in the Water (2006). Her performance in Kenneth Branagh’s film adaptation of As You Like It (2006) earned her a Golden Globe Award nomination. In 2006, she co-wrote and directed the short film Orchids.
Howard became more recognizable to audiences as Victoria in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (2010). This project, as well as Terminator Salvation (2009), was financially successful, but both films garnered mixed reviews from the press. In 2011, she had supporting roles in 50/50 and The Help. She also played a lead role, Claire Dearing, in the science fiction adventure film Jurassic World (2015), the fourth installment in the Jurassic Park film series and her most financially successful film to date. She is signed to reprise her role in the next two films in the franchise.
Howard was born in Los Angeles, California, to writer Cheryl Howard Crew (née Alley) and actor-director Ron Howard, on March 2, 1981. She has two younger sisters, twins Jocelyn and Paige (born 1985), and a younger brother named Reed (born 1987). Through her father, she is a granddaughter of actors Rance Howard and Jean Speegle Howard and a niece of actor Clint Howard. Her godfather is actor Henry Winkler, who co-starred on Happy Days with her father.
All of the Howard children were raised away from the world of show business. Their parents did not allow them access to television and instead encouraged outdoor activities and hobbies. At the age of 7, however, she was allowed to be an extra in her father’s movies. In an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, she mentioned that she and her siblings were babysat by family friend Tom Cruise on several occasions. She was raised in Westchester County, New York and on a farm in Greenwich, Connecticut.
Howard attended Stagedoor Manor, a performing arts camp in upstate New York, with actress Natalie Portman. After attending Greenwich Country Day School until 1996 and then graduating from Byram Hills High School in 1999, Howard studied at New York University’s (NYU) Tisch School of the Arts for three years, during which time she also attended the Stella Adler Conservatory, The Experimental Wing, and International Theatre Wing in Amsterdam. During her schooling, she took part in the concept recording of the Broadway-bound musical A Tale of Two Cities. She graduated with her BFA in Drama in 2003. Howard is also an alumna of the Steppenwolf Theatre Company’s School at Steppenwolf in Chicago, and of The Actors Center in New York City. During her time in New York, Howard was also a member of downtown theater company Theater Mitu, in residence at New York Theatre Workshop, who are known for their exploration of theatrical forms.
