Actress Zoë Kravitz is definitely on a roll.
Zoë Isabella Kravitz was born on 1st December 1988, the daughter of legendary musician Lenny Kravitz and The Cosby Show actress Lisa Bonet.
She was born and raised in Los Angeles, California, and despite growing up in the spotlight, her childhood was relatively normal – so that meant chores, having an allowance and finding your parents embarrassing.
She won big at the Critics’ Choice Awards, with her movie Mad Max: Fury Road sweeping up an incredible nine gongs, including Best Action Movie. That, and the fact she’s just landed major fashion campaigns with respected fashion houses mans she’s in high demand.
Zoë has been working in film regularly since 2009, but her career really kicked off in 2010, when she landed the roles of Sweetness O’Hara in indie film Yelling To The Sky and Pearl in the popular US TV series Californication.
Her big breakthrough role, however, was as disgruntled mutant Angel Salvadore in 2011’s star-studded superhero flick X-Men: First Class.
After reaching the big time with X-Men, Zoë starred in M Night Shyamalan’s sci-fi thriller After Earth, alongside Will and Jaden Smith, in 2013.

Another blockbuster came along in 2014: the film adaptation of the first novel in the Divergent series. Zoë won one of the leading roles, alongside Shailene Woodley, Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort and Kate Winslet. Follow that with a part in 2015’s Mad Max: Fury Road, and it’s clear that Zoë’s star is only going to keep rising.
In 2020, Kravitz headlined the romantic comedy web television series High Fidelity, premiering on Valentine’s Day. She starred as one of the leads in Viena and the Fantomes. Kravitz is set to portray Selina Kyle / Catwoman, now in live action, in director Matt Reeves’ The Batman, which is scheduled for release on March 4, 2022.
