Clea DuVall was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. She began working as an actor at 18, and quickly became a fixture in both TV and film. Some of her credits include the Academy Award-winning Argo, 21 Grams , Girl Interrupted, Better Call Saul, and American Horror Story: Asylum. Over the past 10 years, she has been honing that craft of writing, with direction and guidance from the immensely talented pool of writers and directors she has had the pleasure and privilege of working with. The Intervention, her first feature as writer-director, is released theatrically on August 26.
