Mackenzie Davis biography

Blade Runner 2049

Mackenzie Davis

Date of Birth: April 1, 1987

Mackenzie Davis was born in Vancouver, British Columbia to Lotte and John Davis, owners of a hair care company based out of the province. As a child, she took every opportunity she could find to perform but decided not to pursue acting professionally until she’d finished school. She studied English and Women’s Studies at McGill University, while taking acting classes and performing in school plays to hone her craft.

Mackenzie moved to New York City to study acting at the Neighborhood Playhouse whose famous alumni include Gregory Peck, Diane Keaton and Jeff Goldblum. Although eager to act, Mackenzie resisted taking roles that would typecast her as the girlfriend or love interest, a decision she believed would likely make landing roles even more difficult.

While she was in New York, Mackenzie was discovered by director Drake Doremus, who cast her alongside Felicity Jones and Guy Pearce in his drama, Breathe In. Following her breakout role, Mackenzie began appearing in more films, including the comedy That Awkward Moment (2014), the space odyssey film The Martian (2015), and the psychological thriller, Always Shine (2016).

She has not restricted herself to the big screen, starring in the AMC-TV period drama Halt and Catch Fire, as well as appearing on the Netflix series Black Mirror in a 2017 episode widely regarded as the best and most emotional episode of the series.

Mackenzie returned to theaters in the Blade Runner sequel, Blade Runner 2049 , and starred in the title role in the 2018 film, Tully , alongside Charlize Theron. She followed that up with the role of Grace in the blockbuster Terminator: Dark Fate (2019), alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger, Edward Furlong and Linda Hamilton.
