Holland Roden Marie is an American actress. She was born on October 7, 1986, in Texas to a couple who were both doctors. Since she came from a medical background, her family encouraged her to attend medical school and even Holland had a little desire to pursue a career in medicine. But more than that, she had always wanted to become an artist in Hollywood. So she started attending theater camps and acting classes at a regular basis from a very young age. Her role model was the Queen of England, so she would always prefer feminist roles that motivated her more to be like her icon.
Later she moved to Los Angeles to study Biology which she studied for around four years at UCLA. After some time she started doing a course in Women's Studies which she found very interesting, and she graduated with a degree in the subject from UCLA. Then Holland hired an agent who helped her to find some movies to act in. ‘12 Miles of Bad Road’ was the first television series that Roden got offered, but unfortunately, the show got shelved even before it got released, in the year 2007. The reason behind its cancellation is unknown, but the show got shut down just after six episodes were shot. She got some guest appearances in series like ‘Community’, ‘Criminal Screen Investigation’, ‘Criminal Minds’, and ‘Lost’.
Since she had some experience of being a doctor, Holland did a cameo role in ‘Grey's Anatomy’ in the year 2008. In 2011, she got offered the role of “Lydia”, for which she was recognized worldwide, in the drama series ‘Teen Wolf.' Her team was honored with the “Best Ensemble Young Hollywood Award” for their impressive work in the show. Roden has appeared in supporting roles in motion pictures like ‘House of Dust’ as “Gabby” and in ‘Bring It On: Fight to the Finish’ playing the role of ‘Skylar’. When Holland was little, her ambition was to become an astronaut, but then when she started attending acting camps she got inspired by the work done there and that is how she entered Hollywood. The actress is a huge fan of music. When she has free time, she listens to many of her favorites which include “Crash Kings”, “Mumford & Sons” and “Cat Stevens” etc.
