Odeya Rush Biography


Date of Birth: May 12, 1997

Odeya Rush was born in Israel, but moved to the US when she was nine years old. Soon after, her family relocated to the Tri-State area so that Odeya could pursue acting. By the age of 12, she’d already booked numerous commercials and appeared in several short films. She was easily able to transition into television and film. Odeya has appeared on HBO’s television series Curb Your Enthusiasm as Emily, and on Law and Order SVU as Hannah Milner.

She made her feature film debut in The Odd Life of Timothy Green (2012), playing Timothy’s best friend, Joni Jerome. More recently, she played Jenna Walton in the Oscar-nominated Lady Bird (2017) alongside Saoirse Ronan. In the comedy Dear Dictator (2018), she played a teen who has a dictator, played by Michael Caine, for a pen pal.

The only girl in her family among six brothers, Odeya grew up in New Jersey.
