Chloe Grace Moretz began a career in entertainment at the tender age of five. She began in New York City as a national model in many print outlets and television commercials. At age six she moved with her family to Los Angeles, where her career took a theatrical turn.
Quickly after moving to California, Chloë booked a recurring role on the CBS show “The Guardian” with Simon Baker. She had the fortune of being directed by Emilio Estevez for her very first theatrical outing. Her first feature film came soon thereafter in an independent film “The Heart of the Beholder.” She immediately booked a lead role in Michael Bay’s remake of “The Amityville Horror” for MGM, opposite Ryan Reynolds, and received critical acclaim for her work.
Chloë starred in the action-packed film adaptation of Mark Millar’s comic book “Kick-Ass.” The story follows a 15-year-old boy’s attempts to become a real-life super-hero; sadly, he has no powers or any reason to choose to fight crime. Chloe plays the part of Hit-Girl, a ferocious potty-mouthed 11-year-old, who fights crime by teaming up with her father, Big-Daddy, played by Nicolas Cage. For her work in “Kick-Ass,” Chloë earned the title of Most Likely to Succeed It-girl in the Making from Teen Vogue magazine.
“Diary of a Wimpy Kid,” the theatrical remake of Jeff Kinney’s popular children’s book series of the same name, was released in March 2010. Chloë plays the role of Angie, an intense middle school girl dressed in all black who is much smarter than her peers.
Moretz is currently in production on Tim Burton’s “Dark Shadows,” slated for release in 2012. Moretz will star alongside Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter and Michelle Pfeiffer in this gothic-horror tale, based on the popular “Dark Shadows” television series.
Chloë can most recently be seen starring as Abby in “Let Me In,” written and directed by Matt Reeves, based on the Swedish novel and film, “Let the Right One In.” The film tells the story of a young, bullied boy who finds love and revenge through Abby, who happens to be a beautiful young vampire.
Last year, Chloë wrapped production on “Texas Killing Fields,” for director Ami Mann. The psychological thriller is based on true events that took place in a small Pennsylvania town in 1973. Chloë stars alongside Sam Worthington and Jessica Chastain.
Next year, Moretz will also be seen in the upcoming film “Hick,” also starring Blake Lively, Juliette Lewis and Alec Baldwin. The story follows a Nebraska teen that gets more than she bargained for when she sets out for the bright lights of Las Vegas.
Moretz is also set to play the title role in the Dark Horse Entertainment film adaptation of “Emily the Strange,” based on the popular character created by Rob Reger. The film will tell the story of the punk and gothic figure and her four cats, set to release in 2013.
Chloë’s other feature film credits include: Fox Searchlight’s offbeat romantic comedy “(500) Days of Summer,” with Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel, which premiered at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival; the psychological thriller “Not Forgotten,” in which she starred alongside Paz Vega and Simon Baker; the indie film festival circuit favorite “The Third Nail”; the Martin Lawrence comedy hit sequel “Big Momma’s House 2”; and the lead in “The Children,” shot on location in Sofia, Bulgaria.
On the small screen, Chloë recently played a guest role on the NBC hit “30 Rock,” with Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey, and can be seen throughout the second season of the ABC series “Dirty Sexy Money” as Kiki George, starring opposite Peter Krause and Donald Sutherland. Moretz also guest-starred on episodes of “My Name Is Earl” and “Desperate Housewives.”
In addition to feature films and television, Chloë has also been using her acting abilities to bring life to animation through her voice. She was cast as the lead Darby in the new series “My Friends Tigger & Pooh” for Disney Animation, and lent her voice for the animated show “The Emperor’s New School.”
She currently resides in Los Angeles.
