Early life[edit]

Brown was born in Alameda, California and raised in Springfield, Oregon.[2] At age four, Brown had her first role in a church musical which sparked her love of performing. Growing up, she participated in numerous musicals and was a member of various musical clubs, choirs and groups, some of which include University of Oregon, Portland Shakespeare Project, Art's Umbrella, Oregon Children's Choir, and Upstart Crow Studios.[3] Following high school, Brown moved to Portland, Oregon to pursue acting.[4]

Brown began with minor roles in NBC's Grimm and Freeform's The Fosters. She went on to star in Camp Harlow and Forgotten Hero, and guest star on NBC's Brooklyn Nine-Nine.[5]

In 2015, Brown landed the recurring role of Evangeline "Evie" Murphy in seasons 2 and 3 of HBO's The Leftovers.[6][7] Evie is the daughter of Erika and John who goes missing with her friends after an earthquake.[8] Following The Leftovers, Brown was cast as Nina (Cameron's new girlfriend) on Freeform's Stitchers.[9]

Brown went on to play series regular character Emilia Bassano on the TNT drama series Will, which told the story of William Shakespeare. Emilia was a musician, poet, and writer, who went on to become the first female professional English poet and was believed to be the "Dark Lady" of Will’s sonnets.[10]
