Teresa Mary Palmer[1] (born 26 February 1986) is an Australian actress, writer, producer and model who made her film debut in the suicide drama 2:37. She starred in the 2013 film Warm Bodies as a young woman who falls in love with a zombie, and as Rebecca in the 2016 horror film Lights Out. She has also appeared in films such as December Boys, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, I Am Number Four, Take Me Home Tonight, Love and Honor, The Ever After (which she co-wrote and co-produced with her husband, Mark Webber), Kill Me Three Times, the 2015 remake of Point Break, Triple 9, The Choice, and the Mel Gibson-directed war film Hacksaw Ridge.

Early life[edit]

Palmer was born and raised in Adelaide, South Australia. She is the only child of Kevin Palmer, an investor, and Paula Sanders, a former nurse and missionary. Her parents divorced in 1989 when she was three.[2] She has a stepmother, Kaaren Palmer, as well as two half-sisters and two stepbrothers, who lived with her father.[3][4] Palmer stated to Interview that she “came from rather humble beginnings”;[5] she lived in public housing with her mother, and grew up on her father’s farm in the Adelaide Hills.[2][6][7] Palmer was named after Mother Teresa by her mother, and has stated that she had a “tough upbringing” due to her mother’s manic depression.[8][9]

Palmer was a student at Mercedes College, a private Catholic day school,[10] and won a local-casting audition, “Search for a Movie Star”, in 2003.[11] Her first acting job was dressing up as Strawberry Shortcake and Santa’s Little Helper on weekends for promotions in shopping centres near Adelaide.[12][13] Palmer went to acting classes for a couple of years and appeared in a few television commercials.[9] She was a fast-food attendant at Hungry Jack’s in Rundle Mall in 2005, before working at clothing retailers Supré, Mambo Australia, and Cotton On.[14][15][16]

After graduating from high school, Palmer got a call from her local-talent agent about appearing in a student film, 2:37.[5] The director had seen her head shot on the acting agency’s website and wanted her to be in the movie. Palmer thought that she would work in an animal rescue service, and eventually open her own animal welfare agency.[17] She was accepted into a university to study teaching and was taking a course on journalism, but had always dreamt of acting.[2][18] Palmer dropped out of the university to work on the film.[9]

Acting[edit]

Beginnings in Australia[edit]

Palmer had been an extra on Deck Dogz (2005), and other films shot in Adelaide.[3][19] At the age of 18, she was cast by filmmaker Murali K. Thalluri in the independent Australian film 2:37.[20] Palmer portrayed Melody in the film, a popular high school student who becomes suicidal after being impregnated by her brother.[5] She was nominated for the 2006 Australian Film Institute Award for Best/ ok Lead Actress for her performance.[21] She then signed with a talent agent in Sydney.[3] A role in Wolf Creek (2005) followed, in a pool party scene.

Palmer starred in the psychological thriller Restraint, with English actor Stephen Moyer and Calvin Klein model Travis Fimmel. Shot on location around New South Wales in mid-2005, the film was written by Dave Warner and directed by David Denneen.[22] Palmer was named an Australian “star of tomorrow” by Screen International that year.[23] She then starred in December Boys, a coming-of-age film set in the 1960s, based on a novel by Michael Noonan. She played Lucy, who has a romance with Daniel Radcliffe‘s character on a remote beach resort. Palmer studied Dominique Swain‘s performance in Lolita (1997) to capture her character’s overt sexuality.[24] The film began shooting in November 2005 on the south coast of Australia.[25] It was released on 14 September 2007 in the UK and US and 20 September 2007 in Australia[26] and received mixed reviews [27] and failed at the box office.[28]

2:37 premiered at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival in Un Certain Regard selection. The film received a standing ovation, a turning point for Palmer, giving her confidence in acting as a career. The trip to Cannes lead her to meet her manager, David Seltzer, and American talent agents.[3][29] She signed with the William Morris Agency.[30]

Move to Hollywood[edit]

Palmer was cast to star with Tom Sturridge in her first American feature, Jumper, a science fiction film directed by Doug Liman. Her part was later recast when the lead characters were rewritten for older actors; her role went to Rachel Bilson.[30] Palmer was devastated from losing the role and returned to Adelaide for a few months.[9] She made her Hollywood feature film debut in The Grudge 2 in 2006, a horror sequel starring Amber Tamblyn and Sarah Michelle Gellar. Palmer described her character, Vanessa, as “the bitchy schoolgirl”.[24] The Grudge 2 was released in North America on 13 October 2006 (Friday the 13th)[31] to negative reviews[32] and grossed $70 million worldwide against its $20 million budget.[33]

Palmer at The Hunger Games Sydney Premiere And Review

In early 2007, Palmer was cast as Tori Frederking in the comedy Take Me Home Tonight, starring Anna Faris, Dan Fogler and Topher Grace.[34] Set in the 1980s, the film was directed by Michael Dowse and released in March 2011.[24][35] Take Me Home Tonight received negative reviews from film critics[36] and was a box office flop, failing to recoup its $19 million budget.[37] Palmer starred in the film clip for the 2007 single “Breaking Up“, by the band Eskimo Joe, shot in Newcastle. Palmer jumps into the sea with the band’s singer, Kavyen Temperley.[38] Palmer relocated from Semaphore Beach in Adelaide to Los Angeles in May 2007 to further her career, and began auditioning for films. She stated that Los Angeles was “a big adjustment” and “very different” from her home in Australia.[24] She went through a period of loneliness and depression, and considered going back home until she made friends there.[9] In November 2007, Palmer was cast as the villain, Talia al Ghul, in the DC Comics superhero film, Justice League of America, alongside D.J. Cotrona, Adam Brody, Anton Yelchin, Common and Megan Gale. George Miller was set to direct the film, but it was cancelled by Warner Bros. due to script rewrite issues and the 2007–2008 Writers Guild of America strike.[39]

Palmer was the face of Sydney jeweller Jan Logan’s “modern darling” collection in 2008.[15] She was picked that year by Adam Sandler from an audition tape to play his love interest in the Walt Disney Pictures children’s film, Bedtime Stories.[9] She played an heiress, Violet Nottingham, starring alongside Guy Pearce and Courteney Cox. Sandler also put Palmer’s mother and best friend in scenes in the film.[40] It was released on 25 December 2008 and received mixed to negative reviews[41] but grossed $212 million worldwide on its $80 million budget.[42]

Palmer won the romantic lead in Disney’s The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and directed by Jon Turteltaub. The film was based on the relevant section of the animated film Fantasia (1940), which was set to a short scherzo for orchestra by Paul Dukas, L’apprenti sorcier (The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, published in 1897, and by far, the best known of Dukas’ compositions), all of which were inspired by the eponymous poem by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.[43] Palmer stayed in Manhattan‘s West Village while filming for six months.[44] She played Becky Barnes, a college student who is pursued by Dave Stutler (Jay Baruchel), a physics student and apprentice to the wizard Balthazar (Nicolas Cage).[45] It was released on 14 July 2010 to mixed reviews,[46] and grossed $215 million worldwide on its big $150 million budget.[47] In July 2010, Parade Magazine listed the film #1 on its list of “Biggest Box Office Flops of 2010 (So Far)”.[48]

In 2009, Palmer formed the film production company Avakea Productions, with Australian actresses Tahyna Tozzi and Nathalie Kelley. She was a guest judge on MTV Australia, for the Sydney filmmaking talent contest, Optus one80project.[49] She also filmed an ad campaign that year for the Australian jean store, Just Jeans, and became the face and spokesperson for the Jurlique cosmetics company.[2][50]

In 2011, Palmer starred in the sci-fi adventure film, I Am Number Four, alongside Alex Pettyfer and Dianna Agron. She played Number Six, one of nine aliens hiding out on Earth because her home planet was destroyed. Her character was skilled in martial arts, rode a Ducati motorcycle, and could “phase” her way through solid objects (a la The Matrix Reloaded). She went through stunt training for the role, learning to perform flips, sword fight, and do wirework. The film was adapted from a novel that was the first of a six-part series. Palmer signed on to do three movies, if the film became a franchise.[29] The film was released in theaters on 18 February 2011, and was also released in the IMAX format.[51][52] It received generally negative reviews from critics [53] and grossed $149 million worldwide.[54]

Palmer was going to star in Fury Road, a sequel to the Mad Max series by Australian filmmaker George Miller, but didn’t join the cast due to scheduling conflicts.[55][56] The film was later postponed.[57] Palmer starred in the short film Bear, directed by Nash Edgerton, which competed at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival.[58]

She appeared opposite Joel Edgerton in the independent Australian drama-thriller, Wish You Were Here, directed by Kieran Darcy-Smith.
