Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

New York City native Ansel Elgort first gained notice as a teen actor, starring opposite Shailene Woodley in a pair of successful young adult-oriented films, "Divergent" (2014) and "The Fault In Our Stars" (2014). The son of a photographer and an opera director, the arts were in Elgort's blood and his environment from the day he was born. His creatively-inclined family nurtured his artistic interests and talents, sending him to summer camp at the well-known Stagedoor Manor, alma mater of Hollywood luminaries like Natalie Portman, Zach Braff and Lea Michele. As an adolescent, Elgort attended Fiorello LaGuardia High School, a performing arts school in New York City. Elgort's career as a professional actor began when he starred in Matt Charman's Off-Broadway play "Regrets" (2012). Following his stage debut, Elgort was cast as Carrie's ill-fated prom date Tommy Ross in Kimberley Peirce's remake of "Carrie" (2013) alongside Chloƫ Grace Moretz. Elgort then starred opposite Oscar nominee Shailene Woodley in "Divergent" (2014), a science-fiction thriller about a future dystopian society. The two rising young stars were immediately paired again for the teen romantic drama "The Fault in Our Stars" (2014)...
