Evie Louise Thompson was born in Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1995. She has a little brother named Cy, two dogs, one cat, one rabbit, and a fish named Marvin. She is very close with her brother and considers him her very best friend.
Her favorite thing in the world besides family and acting is going to Camp Longhorn each summer. Evie has always loved performing but it was not until she attended a summer acting camp that someone took notice. She was plucked from the camp to perform with a Broadway touring production. From the moment the curtain went up, she was hooked!
Eight months later, in the spring of 2005, she convinced her parents to let her get an agent. She went on her first commercial audition for the Scooter Store and booked it, even with braces. Then, she auditioned for and filmed many commercials and film projects locally.
While on vacation in California she heard about an open call for a feature film starring one of her favorite actresses, Renee Zellweger. Incredibly, she went all the way to producers. Although she did not book the film, the process made her want to pursue opportunities in California.
She auditioned for her first TV show, Zoey 101, that December and booked it. Six months later, in May 2007, she signed with a big Los Angeles agency and manager. Since then, Evie booked a lead in the feature film directed by Connie Stevens and will soon be seen on the CBS drama Criminal Minds.
She loves to act and the whole audition process. Evie just cannot wait to see what happens next!
