Agron made her debut appearing as Jessica Grant in CSI: NY during 2006. Following this, Agron had minor appearances in films and TV series such as Drake & Josh, Shark, T.K.O., Skid Marks, Dinner with Raphael, and Celebrities Anonymous. From 2006 to 2007, Agron had recurring roles in Veronica Mars as Jenny Budosh, and Heroes as Debbie Marshall. In 2009, Agron was cast as Quinn Fabray on the Fox musical comedy-drama series, Glee.[2] Quinn was introduced as "terrible, the meanest girl", as Agron said. Thanks to this role, Agron has won many awards and nominations. Also that year, she branched out into writing and directing with the result being the short film A Fuchsia Elephant, the story about an 18-year-old girl played by Agron who creates an ideal birthday party, however, it was never released.

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]

Savannah, Georgia.

Agron was born in Savannah, Georgia, and was 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] 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.[6] Agron attended Hebrew school and had a bat mitzvah.[6][7]

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." She pauses, then says, "Those kinds of things I'm not ready to speak about yet."[8]

Agron attended Burlingame Intermediate School and Burlingame High School,[2] where she was in the Homecoming Court,[9] and played in Grease as Marty, and also involved in the set design, the costumes, painting and the whole process.[10] 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,[11] 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.[12]

Career[edit]

Acting[edit]

Television[edit]

Agron has appeared on television shows such as Shark, Close to Home, CSI: NY, Numb3rs,[13] 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. Dianna has also hosted a mini Music Festival for 826LA in Los Angeles called "Chickens in Love."[14]

Glee[edit]

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.[15] Agron said in a 2009 interview pertaining to her casting session: "I nearly bailed on my audition for the show. I was so nervous".

With her wholesome good looks, Agron certainly looked the part, but the 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."[16] Agron auditioned with Frank Sinatra's "Fly Me to the Moon".[15] The Glee producers said "we really lucked out in finding Agron to play Quinn".[15] Quinn is described by Agron as Rachel Berry's (Lea Michele) enemy, and "terrible, the meanest girl".[17] 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.[18]

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.[19] 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 nominated in the same category the following year.[20][21] Agron was praised for her dramatic acting during the confrontation scene with Quinn's parents in "Ballad".[22] Gerrick D. Kennedy, writing for the Los Angeles Times, was critical of the ongoing Quinn's pregnancy plot in the episode "Hairography", and noted that he cringed whenever Quinn appeared on screen.[23] 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".[24] 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.[25] On July 23, 2012, it was reported that Agron was going to appear less frequently in Glee's fourth season.[26] 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).[27] In March 18, 2014, Agron expressed interest in returning for more future Glee episodes.[28]

In 2012, The Biography Channel aired a documentary of Glee, with Agron being interviewed along with other castmates. It showed a brief description of Dianna's character and her audition for the show.[29]

Films[edit]

In 2007, Agron appeared i Dyanna in the action drama thriller film T.K.O., directed by Declan Mulvey, alongside Samantha Alarcon, Daz Crawford and Christian Boeving.[30] She also appeared as Megan in the independent comedy film Skid Marks.[31] She also appeared as Kyle's Girl in the short comedy film Rushers.[32] She also appeared in a short comedy film Dinner with Raphael, and 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.[33] She played Natalie, fiancée to main character Ali's love interest Jack, in the film Burlesque.[34] The actress also appeared in Bold Native, a film about animal liberation.[35][36]

In 2011, Agron appeared as Alice in the horror thriller The Hunters and in the science-fiction action thriller I Am Number Four.[37][38][39][40] 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.[41] 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.[42][43][44] 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."[45] 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."[46]

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.[47][48] She will portray a character named Victoria. The movie will start production in 2014. On October 23, 2013, an interview with Agron got 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 agressive" than her character in The Family.[49] It was later revealed that the title of the film is A Conspiracy on Jekyll Island.[50] Agron confirmed via Twitter that she started shooting it on November 20, 2013.[51]

Agron started filming a new thriller movie, Zipper, in Louisiana on February 4, 2014; she will portray a character named Dalia. Patrick Wilson, Lena Headey, John Cho, and Adrianne Palicki will also star in the film. 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. It will premiere in late 2014.[52][53][54][55] On February 21, 2014 it was reported that Agron will star in an upcoming film named All Alone, which is expected to premiere during 2015.[56] 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.[57] Her character's name is Finley.

Singing[edit]

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.[58][59]

Agron as Quinn on the Glee Live! In Concert! tour

Agron made her musical debut at the end of the episode "Showmance", performing Dionne Warwick's "I Say a Little Prayer".[58] "I Say a Little Prayer" charted in the UK Singles Chart at 125.[60] Quinn's next solo was in the episode "Throwdown", performing The Supremes' "You Keep Me Hangin' On".[58] The song charted in the UK Singles Chart at 166.[60]

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".[61] She performed a rendition of James Brown's "It's a Man's Man's Man's World" in the episode "Funk".[59] 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.[62][63]

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".[64] 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".[65] Crystal Bell of HuffPost TV described it as a "blah performance", but Kate Stanhope of TV Guide said it was "sweet and reflective".[66][67] 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" and called it a "remarkably lovely fit" for her voice.[68][69] She has also sung many cast group songs and duets.

In February 2013, Agron hosted and performed "Dreams" and "What's Love Got to Do with It" featuring A House For Lions on the 1st "You, Me and Charlie" concert in Los Angeles.[70][71] When asked about if she is interested on a solo album in 2011, 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!", she said. "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", Agron continued.[72]

Music videos[edit]

In 2010, Agron directed the music video for "Body" by Thao & The Get Down Stay Down.[73][74]

On October 28, 2013, Agron confirmed that she would be filming a musical project. She said that she would not be singing, but she would portray a singer that she really admires.[75][76] The next day, she confirmed that it was a music video, and on October 30, it got filmed.[77][78] On November 25, 2013, it got released and is the music video of "Just Another Girl" by The Killers.[79][80][81]
