Early life[edit]

Career[edit]

Simmons began her career as a Ford Model,[4] also modelling for Bebe Stores and Roxy and appearing in commercials and print ads for companies like J.C. Penney and Saturn.[5]

She moved into acting in 2010 on the web series Hollywood Is Like High School with Money, based on the book of the same name, playing Quinn Whitaker.[6][7] She also appeared in an episode of the Disney 😄 sitcom Zeke and Luther and then in the 2011 Disney Channel Original Movie Geek Charming.

In 2012, Simmons starred in the film Fat Kid Rules the World, and guest starred in an episode of Jane by Design. In 2013, she appeared in an episode of Vegas and began playing Rebecca Bowman, a rebellious Amish girl on the Cinemax series Banshee.[8] She originally auditioned for the role of Deva Hopewell, but: “They said, ‘She’s too old or too sexy’ or whatever”. While in Philadelphia for her grandmother’s funeral, the producers asked her to go back to New York to read for Rebecca, after which she won the role.[9] In March that year, she appeared in a pictorial in Maxim magazine.[10]

In 2014, Simmons began recurring roles on Hawaii Five-0, and the HBO series True Detective.[11] In April 2016 she was cast in a recurring role in another HBO series, Westworld.[12] In February 2017 Simmons was cast in a season-long arc on the fifth season of the Showtime drama series Ray Donovan playing Natalie James, “the star of a big movie franchise”.[13]
