Liv Hewson (born November 29, 1995) is an Australian actor and playwright. Hewson uses they-and-them pronouns. Their written work includes "lots of re-imaginings of fairytales and mythology with a queer and dark slant." They starred as character Abby Hammond in the Netflix series Santa Clarita Diet.
Hewson was born in Canberra, grew up in the suburb of Hughes and attended Alfred Deakin High School and Canberra College. They began acting as part of the Canberra Youth Theatre. Their mother, Angela, is a public servant and their father, Tony, is a psychologist. Hewson has three brothers. Growing up, the family watched a lot of American television shows, such as The Simpsons and Futurama, which Hewson said made it easy to act with an American accent.
In 2014, Hewson traveled to Los Angeles to attend an acting workshop. In 2016, they played the lead role of Claire Duncan in the fantasy web series Dramaworld. In 2017, they starred in the film Before I Fall and had recurring roles in the second series of Top of the Lake and in the miniseries Marvel's Inhumans.
