Like actress Kim Darby, teenager Hailee Steinfeld was raised from relative obscurity to overnight stardom by playing Mattie Ross, the strong-willed frontier girl who hired aging marshal Rooster Cogburn to avenge her father's death in "True Grit," a film originally made in 1969 and starring John Wayne. Age 13 at the time of her casting in the Coen Brothers' 2010 remake, Steinfeld wowed audiences with the strength of her confident performance, which earned numerous critical awards and nominations, as well as predictions of stardom to come. Born Dec. 11, 1996 in Thousand Oaks, CA, Hailee Steinfeld knew that she wanted to be an actress from a very young age. She had fallen in love with the craft after seeing a neighbor perform in a play, and became further enamored after her cousins began making appearances in television commercials. However, Steinfeld's parents insisted that she attend acting classes before they would consider booking her an agent to pursue her career goals. Her family held to their promise, and Steinfeld began landing roles in television commercials and short films. Her all-American looks and natural poise made her a natural for idealized young women, including an angel in the short "Heather: A Fairy Tale" (2008) and a dream girl worthy of sacrificing a beloved mullet in "She's a Fox" (2009). When directors Joel and Ethan Coen began searching for the young protagonist for their remake of "True Grit" (1969), they envisioned an unknown who could make the role her own, a la Tatum O'Neal in "Paper Moon" (1973) or Linda Manz in "Days of Heaven" (1978). After traveling across the Southwest and auditioning some 5,000 actresses, they found Steinfeld in Los Angeles, and cast her within a week of meeting her. Days later, she was on a plane to Texas to begin filming. Reviewers on the whole agreed with the Coens' choice for their young heroine. Steinfeld received rave reviews for her spirited performance, as well as three Best Supporting Actress awards and a score of nominations from state and national film critic associations. In December of 2010, she received a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination for Female Actor in a Supporting Role, and a month later, an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress in a Supporting Role. After some time away from screen work, Steinfeld returned in 2013 with a number of projects. She starred as Juliet opposite fellow actor-on-the-rise Douglas Booth in a feature adaptation of William Shakespeare's perennially performed romantic tragedy "Romeo & Juliet" and portrayed the key character of Petra Arkanian in the sci-fi adventure "Ender's Game," based on the Orson Scott Card novel and starring Asa Butterfield and Harrison Ford. This was followed by roles in McG's action thriller "Three Days to Kill" (2014), Tommy Lee Jones' western "The Homesman" (2014) and thriller "The Keeping Room" (2014). After joining the cast of comedy sequel "Pitch Perfect 2" (2015), (During this period, Steinfeld also embarked on a brief career as a teen pop singer, scoring a Top 40 hit with the 2015 single "Love Myself.") Steinfeld starred in action comedy "Barely Lethal" (2015) and coming of age comedy-drama "The Edge of Seventeen" (2016). Along with roles in "Pitch Perfect 3" (2017) and animated blockbuster "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" (2018), Steinfeld next starred in the 1980s-set "Transformers" (2007) prequel "Bumblebee" (2018).
