Bryce Dallas Howard

Bryce Dallas Howard is the daughter of former actor turned Oscar-winning director Ron Howard and actress/writer Cheryl Howard. She has two younger twin sisters, Jocelyn and Paige Howard. She applied to drama school as Bryce Dallas, dropping her last name to avoid special treatment because of association with her renowned father. From 1999-2003, she studied at the Stella Adler Conservatory and at the New York University Tisch School of Arts and graduated with a BFA degree in Drama in 2003. Young Howard appeared in three of her father’s films as an extra, including her appearance as a child together with her mother in ‘Apollo 13’. Director M. Night Shyamalan was impressed by her performance in a Broadway play and cast her without an audition as a female lead in his two thrillers: ‘The Village’ and ‘Lady in the Water’. She also played Gwen Stacy in the third installment of the Spider-Man franchise, ‘Spider-Man 3' and the female lead, Claire, in ‘Jurassic World’. Howard became a devoted vegan after Joaquin Phoenix showed her a documentary about animal cruelty. On June 17, 2006, in Connecticut, she married her long-term boyfriend, Seth Gabel, who she now has two children together with.
