Bio

Marie Avgeropoulos is a Canadian actress best known for her role as Valerie "Valli" Wooley in I Love You, Beth Cooper in the 2009 feature film and for her starring role as Kirstie in the psychological horror series Cult, since 2013.

She also had a recurring role as Samantha in the short-lived television comedy series The Inbetweeners, in 2012.

Born and raised in the small-town of Thunder Bay, Ontario, Marie grew up fishing, hunting and camping.

Her first break in the entertainment industry came as a result of her favourite hobby, playing drums. While studying broadcast journalism in Ontario, a friend alerted her to a casting call in Vancouver for a clothing commercial which was looking for drummers.

The opportunity landed her an agent and after appearing in various national commercials she caught the eye of director Chris Columbus (Harry Potter, Rent) who hired the budding actor in her first feature role for I Love You, Beth Cooper.

While in Vancouver she booked guest star appearances on Supernatural, Fringe, Eureka and Human Target. In 2011, Marie landed a role alongside Seth Rogan and Joseph Gordan-Levitt on the big screen in the Golden Globe Nominated film, 50/50.

After gaining success in Vancouver, Marie decided to conquer Los Angeles, where she landed roles in various national commercial campaigns, the Lifetime movie Walking the Halls and a recurring role on MTV's The Inbetweeners.

She went on to appear in the feature Live With It opposite Seth Rogen and working in her native BC outdoors in the thriller Hunt To Kill, playing Steve Austin's daughter. She also played the lead role in the 2012 TV movie Fugitive at 17.

Marie currently splits her time between Vancouver and Los Angeles.
