New York City native Ansel Elgort first gained notice as a teen actor, starring opposite Shailene Woodley in a pair of successful young adult-oriented films, "Divergent" (2014) and "The Fault In Our Stars" (2014). The son of a photographer and an opera director, the arts were in Elgort's blood and his environment from the day he was born. His creatively-inclined family nurtured his artistic interests and talents, sending him to summer camp at the well-known Stagedoor Manor, alma mater of Hollywood luminaries like Natalie Portman, Zach Braff and Lea Michele. As an adolescent, Elgort attended Fiorello LaGuardia High School, a performing arts school in New York City. Elgort's career as a professional actor began when he starred in Matt Charman's Off-Broadway play "Regrets" (2012). Following his stage debut, Elgort was cast as Carrie's ill-fated prom date Tommy Ross in Kimberley Peirce's remake of "Carrie" (2013) alongside Chloë Grace Moretz. Elgort then starred opposite Oscar nominee Shailene Woodley in "Divergent" (2014), a science-fiction thriller about a future dystopian society. The two rising young stars were immediately paired again for the teen romantic drama "The Fault in Our Stars" (2014) directed by Josh Boone before rejoining for "The Divergent Series: Allegiant" (2016). After a small cameo in "Paper Towns" (2015), another film based on a novel by "The Fault In Our Stars" author John Green, Elgort starred in Edgar Wright's action comedy "Baby Driver" (2017) as a music-obsessed getaway driver.
