Deadwyler’s Life Story: A Lifetime Story

Danielle Deadwyler Is the Beating Heart of ‘Till’

Deadwyler’s career is not only a triumphant one, it has been a tumultuous one. It began in the year 2008, when she was 24 years old.

“I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma at 18, but this is what I am: I’ve been fighting this disease since I was 15,” explained Deadwyler, who is currently in a full remission.

In August of that year, Deadwyler made her acting debut in a well-received movie titled ‘Unstoppable’ opposite Matt Damon. Soon, she was cast in the independent drama ‘Bruno,’ which she produced and starred alongside Ethan Hawke. “I had no idea what I was getting into there. It was a small film, and I had no idea where it was going to land,” said Deadwyler. “But then it did land at Sundance with the whole cast.”

Deadwyler was cast as the lead, and she quickly proved herself to be a breakout star. At Sundance, ‘Bruno’ won best feature film and the following year it played to packed audiences at the New York Film Festival as well as at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Then in 2010, she won the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in the indie drama ‘My Bloody Valentine 3D’ alongside Colin Farrell and Cameron Diaz. She then landed her first lead role: the titular role of Nina in ‘Till the End of the World,’ which is based on the novel ‘Eleanor Olano: The Journey of the Soul’ by David Levithan.

“It was fun meeting Colin and Cameron and their director, Alex [Reiner], and Alex really wanted me to be in it,” Deadwyler said. “The whole cast and crew really worked incredibly hard to get us together as a team. That is how things are supposed to go.”
