Early Life and Career
Starting off at just 4 years old in front of 3,400 people per night for the hit Broadway musical “Waitress” (first national equity tour), Devyn’s career has since taken off like a rocket!
Shortly after “Waitress”, Devyn and her family partnered with TANDM Talent Management out of Los Angeles and signed for bi-coastal representation from Take 3 Talent.
A few months later, at the age of five, Devyn was carefully selected out of thousands around the world to star opposite of award-winning actors such as Adam Driver, Marion Cotillard, Simon Helberg and work with the highly regarded, critically acclaimed international director Leos Carax in the musical feature film, “Annette” (2021). This was Devyn’s first time both traveling and filming overseas (Belgium & Germany). At the 74th edition of the Cannes Film Festival, Annette won Best Soundtrack, Best Director and opened the prestigious festival. Devyn’s live-action performance in the film has been reported by some as one of the best by a child actor, and she is one of, if not, the youngest actors ever to sing a full length song on film.
At 6 years old, Devyn also worked alongside with the talented, award winning cast of Jessica Chastain and Eddie Redmayne in the anticipated thriller, “The Good Nurse”, directed by Tobias Lindholm.
A few months later, she was cast as the granddaughter of acting legends Bryan Cranston and Annette Bening in the Paramount+ film “Jerry and Marge Go Large”, under the direction of award winning director David Frankel.
She is complemented and commended regularly by industry peers on her natural talent, work ethic, handling challenging roles, her big personality and her ability to quickly learn and adapt.
In her spare time, Devyn enjoys trying new foods (she loves sashimi…especially tuna, eel, and octopus), traveling to new places, swimming, golfing, board games and anything that is competitive or challenging. She is also a whiz at both reading and math, learning 2-3 grades above her age group.
While she is passionate about acting, Devyn is very empathetic about philanthropy and is always looking for ways to give. She has an Annual Birthday Fundraiser that has donated thousands of dollars to various nonprofits and children/pets in need. While in Germany for filming, she became aware of the ocean pollution epidemic from an exhibit at the local aquarium and looks to aid in both cleanup and awareness.
There is no doubt that the future is bright for this young, rising actress.
