Autumn Reeser has quickly established herself as a highly sought after young actress in film and television. She will next be seen starring in ABC’s much anticipated new drama series "Last Resort" opposite Andre Braugher and Scott Speedman. The show begins as a nuclear submarine is crippled and goes on the run after refusing orders to fire on Pakistan. Declared enemies of the state, the crew ends up on an island where they'll attempt to clear their names and get home. Reeser will play ‘Kylie,’ a charming lobbyist for her family’s weapons manufacturing company.
Reeser was last seen as the ambitious junior agent ‘Lizzie Grant’ on the seventh season of HBO’s hit series, "Entourage." She also starred in ABC’s action-packed superhero drama, "No Ordinary Family" opposite Michael Chiklis and Julie Benz. Reeser rose to fame through her starring role as ‘Taylor Townsend’ in the FOX hit series "The O.C." Critics buzzed about her work as the determined go-getter in the show’s final two seasons. She also starred as a young goddess in The CW’s "Valentine," a romantic dramedy about a family of modern Greek Gods. Her additional television credits include the ABC Family film "Nature of the Beast," as well as guest roles in "Royal Pains," "Jane by Design," "Pushing Daisies," "Ghost Whisperer," "It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia," "Star Trek: Voyager," "CSI" and "Cold Case." Her recurring roles include "Hawaii 5-0," "Human Target," "Raising the Bar," "The George Lopez Show," and ABC’s Mel Gibson-directed sitcom "Complete Savages." She also can be seen in Sony’s hit web series "The Bannen Way," written and directed by her husband Jesse Warren.
On the film side, Reeser will next appear in "So Undercover" starring Miley Cyrus. She was recently seen in "The Big Bang," a neo-noir thriller directed by Tony Krantz, where she plays Fay Neman, a physics groupie and love interest for Antonio Banderas, who stars. Continuing on a path to explore diverse characters, she portrayed AK-47, a violent member of the Tremor family in "Smokin Aces 2: Assassins Ball," and a reluctant teenage vampire in the horror film "Lost Boys 2: The Tribe." Her portrayal of a small-town Southern dreamer in the indie "Our Very Own," helped lead the cast (including Allison Janney, Keith Carradine, and Jason Ritter) to a Best Ensemble Acting award at the 2006 Saratoga Film Festival. Reeser also spent years training in dance and singing, and was able to put her considerable skills to work as the villainess in the MTV musical, "The American Mall," from the producers of Disney’s "High School Musical."
Raised in Carlsbad, CA, Reeser spent her childhood developing a solid foundation for her acting career by playing a wide variety of characters in local musical theater productions starting at age 7. After high school, she enrolled in UCLA’s competitive theater program. She spent the next three years totally immersed in the acting world, studying theater history, acting technique, dance, voice and movement. Reeser’s love for the stage continues today.
She can be seen monthly performing in the 1940’s radio-styled comedy show "The Thrilling Adventure and Supernatural Suspense Hour" at the Coronet Theater in Los Angeles.
Reeser resides in Los Angeles with her husband, screenwriter/director Jesse Warren, their son Finn and their two dogs, Sadie and Gatsby.
