Jan 27, 2013

If you’re a fan of One Tree Hill, Pretty Little Liars or The Vampire Diaries than actress Torrey DeVitto is probably a familiar face to you, but did you know that she’s also a model and musician? Find out more about her in her Kidzworld Bio!

New York Native

Torrey Joel DeVitto was born in Huntington, Long Island in New York to artistic parents, her father Liberty DeVitto was the drummer for Billy Joel and she and her sisters often toured with her parents when she was young. Being a performer clearly ran in the family since her sister Maryelle is also an actress and starred in the show Endurance. Acting wasn’t Torrey’s first passion though, she began learnind violin at age 6 and by the time she was 12-years-old she was such a talented violinist that she played a solo at supermodel Christie Brinkley and Peter Cook’s wedding!

Modeling and Music

Torrey’s introduction to being in front of the cameras came in the form of modeling, she and her family moved to Florida when she was a teenager, but the summer after she graduated high school she spent a summer modeling in Japan, when she returned she moved to Los Angeles to truly get her career started. She decided she wanted to be more than just a pretty face in photos and started going out for commercials as well as modeling, but even though she landed lots of commercial roles, she knew that she eventually wanted to act. Not to mention she continued to play violin, playing on stage and the backing for albums.

My fave book(s) is/are the Dork Diary set. It's about a girl who transfers to a new school on a scholarship but she has lots of drama and excitement along the way. The girl is called Nikki Maxwell and her bet friends are Zoe and Chloe. Her crush is a boy named Brandon and her arch-nemesis is Mackenzie. It's a diary and there are 9 reading books, 1 about how to dork you diary up, 2 about where you write your own diary and 1 about how to be a DORK! [s:sm3/1jw1]
