Carlson Elizabeth Young[1] (born October 29, 1990[2]) is an American actress. She is known for her roles on Disney Channel's As the Bell Rings,[3] the film Premature, Comedy Central's Key & Peele, and for her role as Brooke Maddox in the main cast of MTV's Scream television series.[4][5]

Personal life[edit]

Young is originally from Fort Worth, Texas.[1][6] She moved to Los Angeles and attended the University of Southern California,[7] where she studied creative writing and enjoyed writing poetry.[8]

In January 2016, Young became engaged to Foster the People member and producer Isom Innis.[9] Innis had proposed after he and Young were rescued from a mountain in Iceland.[10][11] They were married on April 29, 2017 in Fort Worth, Texas at Saint Andrew's Episcopal Church which Young attended as a child.[6]

Despite being active for many years, Young says that it was after she appeared in the TV series Scream when she achieved a higher level of notoriety while in public. “I’m still not quite used to it, but it definitely happens,” she says.[12]
