Mackenzie Foy, born on November 10, 2000, has been working in front of the camera since she was three. She used to book gigs as a model before eventually moving on to film and television a few years later. She is known for her soft-spoken personality, her incredible work, and her recognizable face. As one of Hollywood’s most popular and in-demand young actors, we know she will continue to land great film and television roles, and we can’t wait to see what she does next. Join us in celebrating her birthday!
Mackenzie Foy was born on November 10, 2000, in Los Angeles. She was raised in Los Angeles by a truck driver father and a homemaker mother. They had no prior connections in show business, but despite this, Foy started working as a model at the very young age of three years old. In 2004, Foy got her first big break when she began modeling for Garnet Hill, Polo Ralph Lauren, and Guess. Even at a young age, she projected a beauty that matched many brands at the time. She has even modeled for companies like Gap, Mattel, and the Walt Disney Company, which does not make it surprising that her path took her to Hollywood. Her acting career began at the age of nine, when she appeared in television shows like “FlashForward” in 2009 and “Hawaii Five-0” in 2010.
Foy’s big break on screen came in 2011 when she was cast as Renesmee Cullen in “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1” and the follow-up “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2.” At the time, it was a book and film series that was taking the world by storm, giving her a massive boost in experience and exposure. Today, she is one of the most bankable teens and young adult stars in the business, with appearances in films like “The Conjuring” in 2013 and “Interstellar” in 2014.
Foy is an excellent example of a child star that has managed to grow into her fame and job with grace, poise, and determination. Since her appearances in the “Twilight” saga, she has appeared in a great selection of films and television shows. Her delicate approach to acting and her pale good looks make her perfect for fantasy and period projects, and we know for sure that she has a lot more to show over the next few years.
Foy is cast as the little girl in an episode of the television series “Til Death.”
She features in a dramatic episode of the show “Hawaii Five-0” and starts getting noticed by audiences and casting directors.
Foy’s big break comes in the form of “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2,” in which the character has a more significant, more prominent role than in the first film.
She is cast as the younger version of Jessica Chastain’s character in Christopher Nolan’s film “Interstellar.”
Foy’s first ever lead role in a film comes when she is cast as Clara in “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms.”
