ALDEN EHRENREICH (Ethan Wate) began writing, directing and starring in student films in junior high school, which led to his discovery by Steven Spielberg, who saw one of the films at a friend's Bat Mitzvah.
In 2009, Ehrenreich spent several months in Buenos Aires playing the lead role in Francis Ford Coppola's drama TETRO. Most recently, he reunited with Coppola for the thriller TWIXT, with Val Kilmer, Bruce Dern, Ben Chaplin and Elle Fanning.
He will next be seen in Scott Free's thriller STOKER, alongside Nicole Kidman, Mia Wasikowska and Dermot Mulroney, set for release in the U.S. in March, and with Cate Blanchett, Alec Baldwin and Peter Sarsgaard in Woody Allen's new comedy feature, also set for release in Fall 2013.
Ehrenreich attended the prestigious Gallatin School at New York University. While there, he founded The Collection. The group created six original plays and five short films and recently completed their first feature film, RUNNING WILD, in which Ehrenreich stars.
His television credits include roles on the CW's SUPERNATURAL as well as CBS's CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION.
Ehrenreich began acting at the age of 4, appearing in school plays as well as community children's theater productions, later starring in numerous plays at California's prep school Crossroads School for Arts & Sciences, including OUR TOWN, THE PRIME OF MISS JEAN BRODIE and THREE SISTERS.
