Emmy Award-Nominated Actress; Known for "True Blood," "Thirteen" and "West World"

Evan Rachel Wood is an American actress, model, and musician. She began acting in the 1990s, appearing in several television series, including "American Gothic" (1995–96) and "Once and Again" (1999–2002). Wood made her debut as a leading film actress at the age of nine in Digging to China (1997) and garnered acclaim for her Golden Globe-nominated role as the troubled teenager Tracy Freeland in the teen drama film Thirteen (2003).

Wood continued acting mostly in independent films, including Pretty Persuasion (2005), Down in the Valley (2005), Running with Scissors (2006), and in the big studio production Across the Universe (2007). Since 2008, Wood has appeared in more mainstream films, including The Wrestler (2008), Whatever Works (2009) and The Ides of March (2011). She also returned to television, playing the supporting role of Queen Sophie-Anne on "True Blood" from 2009 to 2011 and playing the daughter of Mildred Pierce in the HBO miniseries "Mildred Pierce" (2011), for which she was nominated for the Golden Globe and Emmy Award for Best Supporting Actress. She currently plays the sapient android Dolores Abernathy in the HBO series "Westworld", for which she won a Critics' Choice Award and earned Golden Globe and Emmy Award nominations.

In 2019, Wood voiced Queen Iduna in Frozen II.

In 2016, Wood told a Rolling Stone reporter that she had been raped twice, "many years ago." She said she still suffered from the experience, but "I don't believe we live in a time where people can stay silent any longer," and that she was mentioning her past to help other survivors. In February 2018, Wood testified before the United States House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security and Investigations as a rape survivor and survivor of sexual abuse.
