Evan Rachel Wood

Evan Rachel Wood (born September 7, 1987) is an American film, television and theater actress, and singer. She began acting in the late 1990s, appearing in several television roles, including American Gothic and Once and Again. Wood made her debut as a lead film actress in 2002's Little Secrets, and became well known after her Golden Globe-nominated role in Thirteen, which garnered her critical praise. She has since starred in several independent films, including Pretty Persuasion and Down in the Valley, and has several more starring roles in films yet to be released. She is currently the highest paid music video actress in history due to her role in Heart Shaped Glasses

Wood has been described by The Guardian newspaper as being "wise beyond her years" and as "one of the best actresses of her generation".

"Is it true you really have a black belt in Tae Kwon Do?
Yeah, I do. Me and my mom. I’ve had it since I was 12. "

"Wood is a black belt in Tae Kwon Do and is also trained in singing and dance. She lives in Los Angeles. "
