Evan Rachel Wood projects a killer combination of sweet innocence and sultry sexiness. She first came to our notice in the Delta Award
winning "Thirteen". She has since been a mainstay on the Delta 99 Most Desirable Women, debuting at # 20 and reaching as high as #10
in 2007. We tend to spotlight artists who are Delta Award winners. Having been born 23 years ago this month makes Evan a perfect
choice for Septembers Artists Spotlight.

Evan Rachel Wood was born on September 7, 1987, in Raleigh, North Carolina. Her father is Ira David Wood III, and her mother is Sara
Lynn Moore. She has two older brothers: Dana, a musician, and Ira David Wood IV. Evan and her brothers sometimes performed at
Theatre In The Park in Raleigh, North Carolina, where her father is the executive director and founder of the theatre.

At age 7, Evan lost out to Kirsten Dunst for the child lead in Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles (1994). She moved to
Los Angeles with her mom and brother, Ira, in 1996 and has had success ever since, appearing in a TV series, TV-movies, and the big
screen film Practical Magic (1998). She starred in the comedy S1m0ne (2002) as Al Pacino's daughter, followed by Thirteen (2003), with
Holly Hunter.

Wood began her acting career in the late 1990s, appearing in several television series, including American Gothic and Once and Again.
She made her debut as a leading film actress in 2002's Little Secrets and became well-known after her transition to a more adult-oriented
Delta's Choice Award winning role in the critically acclaimed film Thirteen, (2003) co-written by Wood's co-star, Nikki Reed.

Wood continued acting mostly in independent films, including Pretty Persuasion (2005), Down in the Valley (2006), Running with Scissors
(2006), and in the big studio production Across the Universe (2007). Wood's acting has drawn critical praise, and she has been described
by The Guardian newspaper as being "wise beyond her years" and as "one of the best actresses of her generation". In their Spring 2009
issue, Venus Zine awarded Wood the top spot in their 25 Under 25 rankings.
