Dianna Elise Agron (/ˈɡrɒn/;[1] born April 30, 1986) is an American actress, singer, dancer and director. She is also the creator and co-editor of the music, art and photography website You, Me, and Charlie. Other ventures include directing a music video, and producing, writing and directing an unreleased short film A Fuchsia Elephant. Agron made her television debut appearing as Jessica Grant in CSI: NY in 2006. From 2006 to 2007, Agron had recurring roles in Veronica Mars as Jenny Budosh, and Heroes as Debbie Marshall.

In 2009, Agron was cast in her most notable TV role to date as Quinn Fabray on the Fox musical comedy-drama series, Glee.[2] In 2011, Agron co-starred in the films The Hunters and I Am Number Four. Later that year, a concert documentary film of Glee was released, titled Glee: The 3D Concert Movie. In 2013, Agron co-starred as Belle Blake, alongside Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Tommy Lee Jones in the action crime-comedy film The Family.

Early life[edit]

Agron was born in Savannah, Georgia, and raised in San Antonio, Texas and San Francisco, California. She is the daughter of Mary and Ronald S. Agron, a general manager of Hyatt hotels.[3][4][5] Due to this, Agron said she and her family lived in different hotels growing up.[6] She has a younger brother, Jason. Agron's father's family is originally from Russia, and according to Agron their original surname, Agronsky, was altered by Ellis Island officials.[1] Her father was born to a Jewish family, while her mother converted to Judaism.[7] Agron attended Hebrew school and had a bat mitzvah.[7][8] When she was 15, she found out that her father had multiple sclerosis. In an interview for Cosmopolitan, she revealed: "Quite a bit changed after that,” she says. "At that age, you don't see mortality in your parents." The disease caused her parents' relationship to fall apart, and they decided to separate, which was devastating for her and her younger brother. "I had to play therapist to my family... be the glue. Those kinds of things I'm not ready to speak about yet."[9] Agron attended Burlingame Intermediate School and Burlingame High School,[2] where she was in the Homecoming Court,[10] and played in Grease as Marty, and also involved in the set design, the costumes, painting and the whole process.[11] She has been dancing since the age of three, focusing mainly on jazz and ballet, and she later began hip-hop dancing and fell in love with musical theater as a child, often performing in local and school productions, and played Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz in fifth grade,[12] and began teaching dance as a teenager.[5] She says she was not "popular" in the stereotypical sense in high school, though she had many friends from different cliques around the school.[13]




At the Glee premiere party, May 2009.

Agron has appeared on television shows such as Shark, Close to Home, CSI: NY, Numb3rs,[14] and had a recurring role on Veronica Mars. She then appeared as Harper on a 13-episode series of short films called It's a Mall World, directed by Milo Ventimiglia, and airing on MTV, and then on the second season of Heroes as Debbie Marshall, the head cheerleader/captain of the cheer squad at Costa Verde High School. After this role, she was only offered horror films that included nudity, and turned them all the down.[15] In 2009, Agron hosted a mini music festival for 826LA in Los Angeles called Chickens in Love.[16]

Agron's most notable role to date is as Quinn Fabray, a high school cheerleader, on the Fox series Glee. Agron was the last primary actor to be cast, having won the role only days before the pilot began filming.[17] Agron said in a 2009 interview pertaining to her casting session: "I nearly bailed on my audition for the show. I was so nervous." Before being cast as Quinn, the show's producers wondered if she appeared too innocent. Agron said in an interview: "They told me to come back with straight hair and to dress sexier. Later that week, I started work."[18] Agron auditioned with Frank Sinatra's "Fly Me to the Moon".[17] The Glee producers said "we really lucked out in finding Agron to play Quinn."[17] Quinn is described by Agron as Rachel Berry's (Lea Michele) enemy, and "terrible, the meanest girl."[19] Agron said that her favorite part of Quinn is that "she's smart. But she's also human, and through her tough exterior, she's often a little girl lost."[2] Quinn was originally conceived as the antagonistic queen bee head cheerleader, a departure from Agron's actual high school experience.[20]

At Glee Hot Topic Tour, August 17, 2009

Quinn's role as head cheerleader is central to understanding her character. Agron said that she had never had any prior cheer experience before the Pilot. "If I had been [a cheerleader], I would've ended up on crutches," she told Emmy magazine.[2] The role saw Agron nominated for the Teen Choice Award for Female Breakout Star star in 2009.[21] She and the other cast members were awarded the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series in 2010, and were nominated in the same category the following year.[22][23] Agron was praised for her dramatic acting during the confrontation scene with Quinn's parents in the episode "Ballad".[24] Gerrick D. Kennedy, writing for the Los Angeles Times, was critical of the ongoing Quinn pregnancy plot in the episode "Hairography", and noted that he cringed whenever Quinn appeared on screen.[25] Conversely, Bobby Hankinson of the Houston Chronicle enjoyed Quinn in the episode, and wrote: "I love that she can keep her Mean Girls edge while being heartbreakingly sad or as joyful as she was singing "Papa Don't Preach".[26] The A.V. Club writer Todd VanDerWerff suggested that Quinn's season three reinvention hinged on the fact the producers no longer knew how to utilize Agron.[27]

In 2012, The Biography Channel aired a documentary of Glee, with Agron being interviewed along with other castmates. It showed a brief description of Agron's character and her audition for the show.[28] On July 23, 2012, it was reported that Agron was going to appear less frequently in Glee '​s fourth season.[29] Agron's character, Quinn, only appeared on three episodes: "Thanksgiving", "Naked", and "I Do". Agron returned in the fifth season for two special episodes: "100" (Glee's 100th episode) and "New Directions" (second part of the 100th episode).[30] On March 18, 2014, in an interview with E! Entertainment, Agron expressed interest in returning for more future Glee episodes.[31] Agron announced she would return to Glee for its final season after the show's music producer, Alex Anders, shared a photo of an Agron recording music at Capitol Records.[32] She is featured in three episodes: "Homecoming", "Jagged Little Tapestry", and the upcoming series finale being her last appearance on the series.


In 2007, Agron appeared as Dyanna in the action drama thriller film T.K.O., directed by Declan Mulvey, alongside Samantha Alarcon, Daz Crawford and Christian Boeving.[33] She also appeared as Megan in the independent comedy film Skid Marks.[34] She also appeared as Kyle's Girl in the short comedy film Rushers.[35] She also appeared in a short comedy film Dinner with Raphael, and had a small role as Sadie in the independent comedy film Celebrities Anonymous, directed by Dennis Hemphill Jr., alongside Lindsay Zir and Joey Kern. In 2010, she also appeared as Minnow, the younger sister of Lila Hayes, in the romantic comedy The Romantics.[36] She played Natalie, fiancée to main character Ali's love interest Jack, in the film Burlesque.[37] She also appeared in Bold Native, a film about animal liberation.[38][39] In 2010, Agron auditioned for the role of Gwen Stacy for the reboot of the Spider-Man films, The Amazing Spiderman, but lost out on the role to Emma Stone.[40][41]

In 2011, Agron appeared as Alice in the horror thriller The Hunters and in the science-fiction action thriller I Am Number Four.[42][43][44][45] Agron appeared in the concert film of Glee, Glee: The 3D Concert Movie. Agron played Belle Blake in the film The Family, opposite Robert De Niro, Tommy Lee Jones, and Michelle Pfeiffer.[46] The film was released on September 13, 2013, and received mixed to negative reviews. The Family debuted at #2 in its first weekend with $14.5 million.[47][48][49] Reviewers praised Agron's performance. She "gives the best performance in the film as a really sexy teenager coming of sexual age," wrote critic Tony Medley.[50] Writing for The Huffington Post, Zorianna Kit said, "De Niro, Pfeiffer and Jones all brought 100% to their roles. Glee actress Dianna Agron was the stand-out here, shining as the daughter who was falling in love for the first time, while defending her family from total annihilation by the mafia."[51]

On September 26, 2013, it was confirmed by Josh Boone that Agron was cast in the upcoming film Pretenders, alongside Michael B. Jordan, Anton Yelchin, and Imogen Poots.[52][53] She will portray a character named Victoria. The movie is currently on hold until all the cast is available for filming.[54] On October 23, 2013, an interview with Agron was released and she said she will be also shooting another film during November 2013 in Chicago, where she will play a character which is "much more aggressive" than her character in The Family.[55] It was later revealed that the title of the film is A Conspiracy on Jekyll Island.[56] Agron confirmed via Twitter that she started shooting it on November 20, 2013.[57]

On February 21, 2014, it was reported that Agron will star in an upcoming film titled All Alone, which is expected to premiere in 2015.[58] In March 31, 2014, it was reported that Agron joined the cast of the upcoming film Tumbledown, along with Jason Sudeikis and Rebecca Hall. The romantic-comedy film started production that month.[59] Her character's name is Finley. On July 7, 2014, it was revealed that Agron will be joining the cast of Headlock, along with Andy García, Justin Bartha, James Frain, and D. W. Moffett.[60] On July 28, 2014, it was announced that Agron will be portraying the lead character, Sarah Barton, in the upcoming film Bare. The narrative feature is written and directed by Natalia Leite and follows Sarah, a young girl living in a small desert town in Nevada, as she becomes romantically involved with a female drifter who leads her into a life of drugs, stripping, and psychedelic spiritual experiences.[61] Paz de la Huerta will also be starring, along with Riley Keough and Rachel Korine.[62]

Agron appeared in the 2015 political thriller Zipper as Dalia, an intern at the office of a lawyer who’s going to be running for office. The film also starred Patrick Wilson, Lena Headey, and John Cho. It follows a federal prosecutor running for office who can't stop himself from sleeping with high-class escorts, putting both his career and his personal life at great risk. Zipper premiered on January 27, 2015 at the Sundance Film Festival, but will have its theatrical release later during 2015.[63][64][65][66]


On her high school days, Agron was part of the theater workshop and portrayed Marty on the Grease play and performed ballet recitals.[11] On March 20, 2015, it was reported that Agron is going to make her stage debut in a play titled McQueen, which based on the life of the designer Alexander McQueen, played by Stephen Wight. She is going to be the female lead, Dahlia, a fan that breaks into the designer's home to steal a dress and is caught by McQueen, the two later embark a journey through London's streets. The fantasy-based play is written by James Phillips, for the fifth anniversary of Alexander McQueen's death. Agron visited London in December 2014 to pursue an stage role, and got offered a Broadway play but she turned it down for Phillip's work. She later moved from Los Angeles to London. It will run at London's St. James Theatre from May 12, 2015 to June 6 of the same year and will contain nudity and adult themes.[67][68][69]


Several songs performed by Agron as Quinn Fabray on Glee have been released as singles, available for digital download, also featured on the show's soundtrack albums.[70][71] Agron made her musical debut at the end of the episode "Showmance", performing Dionne Warwick's "I Say a Little Prayer".[70] "I Say a Little Prayer" charted in the UK Singles Chart at 125.[72] Quinn's next solo was in the episode "Throwdown", performing The Supremes' "You Keep Me Hangin' On".[70] The song charted in the UK Singles Chart at 166.[72] The song was released on Glee: The Music, Volume 1. The Wall Street Journal editor Raymund Flandez was critical of Quinn's cover of "You Keep Me Hangin' On", which he called "thin and jarring".[73] She performed a rendition of James Brown's "It's a Man's Man's Man's World" in the episode "Funk".[71] The song charted in the Canadian Hot 100 chart at 73, UK Singles Chart at 94 and in the Billboard Hot 100 chart at 95.[74][75]

In season three, Quinn sings her first solo number since the first season, "Never Can Say Goodbye" by The Jackson 5, which received mostly positive reviews. Jen Chaney of The Washington Post gave the song a "B−", and said it "worked much better than every track that preceded it" because it adapted the song to the show "instead of trying to out-Jackson Jackson."[76] Entertainment Weekly '​s Joseph Brannigan Lynch called it "a nice summation of her character's journey, but not vocally impressive enough to justify listening to outside of the episode" and gave it a B rating.[77] Crystal Bell of HuffPost TV described it as a "blah performance", but Kate Stanhope of TV Guide said it was "sweet and reflective."[78][79] Erica Futterman of Rolling Stone wrote that it was "a tune well-suited for Quinn's sultry voice and the flipped meaning she gives the lyrics", and TVLine '​s Michael Slezak had a similar take: he gave it an A rating and called it a "remarkably lovely fit" for her voice.[80][81] She has also sung many cast group songs and duets.

In 2011, when asked about if she is interested in a solo album, Agron said that she is more focused on acting. But later, in December 2013, she said it is not possible, but that "you never know! My album would be called... definitely not Dianna Agron. Something fun. I’m trying to think of something on the spot. Random words are coming to mind: Bats, Night, Dark, Blue."[82]

In February 2013, Agron hosted her very first You, Me and Charlie concert in Los Angeles where she performed Fleetwood Mac's "Dreams" and Tina Turner's "What's Love Got to Do with It" featuring the band A House For Lions.[83][84] In November 2014, Agron, among many other international artists, was featured in United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF)'s charity single "Imagine" which was originally performed by John Lennon.[85]

Music videos[edit]

In 2010, Agron directed the music video for "Body" by Thao & The Get Down Stay Down.[86][87] On November 25, 2013, the music video of "Just Another Girl" by The Killers was released, in which Agron portrays the lead singer.[88][89][90] Agron starred in Sam Smith's "I'm Not the Only One" music video, which was released on August 1, 2014, as a scorned bride.[91] In 2014, Agron directed the music video for "Till Sunrise" by Goldroom. Her brother, Jason, and actress Gabby Haugh star as a romantic couple.[92]

Other works[edit]

In 2009, Agron wrote, starred in, directed, and executive-produced the short comedy film A Fuchsia Elephant. The plot revolves around Agron's character. On the day before her eighteenth birthday, Charlotte Hill makes a decision to change. Not wanting to follow in the footsteps of her alcoholic mother, she enlists a sober partner named Michael (Dave Franco) to help guide her. It was shot during the Glee hiatus in the summer of 2009.[93] Agron hosted the GLAAD Media Award on June 2, 2012 in San Francisco.[94] In 2012 and 2013, Agron appeared in the "Play As You Are" Nintendo campaign, ads for Art Academy: Lessons for Everyone!, and in spots for the puzzle-solving adventure Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask.[95]

Agron spoke at the 18th San Francisco Power of Choice Luncheon to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Roe V. Wade – 40 years of Choice! on March 7, 2013 in San Francisco,[96][97] and attended The Hollywood Reporter and Jimmy Choo 2nd Annual 25 Most Powerful Stylists Luncheon on March 13, 2013 in West Hollywood.[98][99] For the February 2014 issue of the Galore magazine, Dianna worked as the photographer. Her brother, Jason Agron, also helped for the shoot.[100] After directing Thao & The Get Down Stay Down's music video, "Body", and her independent unreleased film, A Fuchsia Elephant, Agron has stated that she would like to continue directing different projects.[101]

Personal life[edit]

In New York City, 2011

Agron and her Glee co-star Lea Michele decided to rent an apartment together in downtown Los Angeles in early 2009. "We have these smack-downs at work and come home and are like, 'Wasn't it so funny when we were fighting today? Let's make cookies!'" said Michele to New York Magazine.[102]

In 2011, she underwent nose surgery to repair her deviated septum which was the result of a blow to the nose when she was fourteen.[103] Agron's Twitter account was hacked on December 18, 2011 and had started many trending topics.

After the July 2013 death of her Glee co-star, Cory Monteith,[105][106][107] Agron reflected on her own mortality, saying "it just makes you take a new lease out on life and look at things a little bit differently. He was truly one of the most wonderful people I’ve ever met in my entire life...."[108] Although she is now out of the show, she said her continuing friendship with her Glee co-stars was a comfort in the wake of Monteith's death.[108]


Agron has supported PETA and gay rights.[109] Using her Tumblr account as a starting point, Agron released her website You Me & Charlie on December 12, 2011. Along with help from several other contributors, she writes and collects posts, which subjects vary from music, art, fashion, and daily inspiration.[110] The site serves as inspiration for many young artists. Vanity Fair has complimented the site, stating that the site is "full of sunshine, optimism, and pretty people".[111] Agron hosted the GLAAD Media Award on June 2, 2012 in San Francisco. Her co-stars of Glee, Naya Rivera and Cory Monteith hosted them on March 24, 2012 in New York City.
