Joelle Carter is an American actress and model best known for her starring role as Ava Crowder on the crime drama television series Justified, since 2010.

Carter was born in Georgia to an army family and was subsequently raised throughout the United States. She attended high school in Albany, Georgia and then enrolled at Augusta College on a full athletic scholarship for swimming and cross-country.

She began her modeling career shortly thereafter and moved to New York to pursue modeling full-time. Falling in love with acting, she began her theatrical studies in NYC and appeared on stage and screen almost immediately.

Carter can be seen in such feature film cult favourites as High Fidelity and American Pie 2, and the indies Swimming and Lisa Picard is Famous.

In addition, she has starred in numerous television projects, including the controversial series Wonderland created by Peter Berg. Furthermore, she is very proud of the documentary, Altered By Elvis, which she co-produced.

Carter also co-produced and starred in the short Girl and a Gun, which won Best Original Short at the 2008 Washougal International Film Festival. She was thrilled to attend the 2008 Cannes Film Festival with the film, Jumping In, in which she starred.

Carter also attended the Boston Film Festival where her film To Be Friends (directed by Jim Eckhart, executive produced by Aaron Eckhart and co-starring Todd Stashwick) was honoured and opened the festival.

Carter's features include City of Jerks (directed by Phedon Papamichael), and Eyes to See, both released in 2011.
