1 SHOWBIZ IN HER BLOOD
This pretty brunette was born to act. Her mother is US actress Lea Thompson of Back To The Future fame and her father is Howard Deutch, who directed classic 80s teen films Pretty In Pink (1986) and Some Kind Of Wonderful (1987), and TV series such as True Blood and American Horror Story.
2 SMALL-SCREEN START
Deutch joined the family business at 16, with roles on the Disney Channel sitcom The Suite Life On Deck and the Sarah Michelle Gellar thriller Ringer.
3 COOL VAMP
This teen made her movie debut in Mayor Cupcake, where she shared the screen with her mum. She has come of age, with her own teen flick Vampire Academy opening here tomorrow.
4 TEENAGE YEARS
Bloodsuckers asides, Vampire Academy is about teen awkwardness. Deutch told Teen Vogue: "I appreciate that (the film) captures some of the hilarity of being a teenager. It's not poking fun at vampires or teenagers, but it's understanding and acknowledging that both can sometimes be slightly ridiculous."
As per most young-adult book adaptations, fans expect a lot from the actors playing their heroes. Deutch has already had her fair share of criticism, simply because she's not curvy enough to play Rose.
"The fans were really upset that I don't have big boobs," said Deutch at last year's New York Comic Con.
"Hopefully they can get over it, but it was a genuine problem."
She said her body shape situation has been sorted out, but stressed that "it doesn't mean I got a boob job".
