Early life

Born on April 1, 1987, in Vancouver, Mackenzie Rio Davis is the daughter of John Davis, a hairstylist, and Lotte Davis, a graphic designer by profession. In the latter part of their careers, her parents ventured into entrepreneurship with their hair care product line, “AG Hair Care”, subsequently dedicating less personal time to Mackenzie and her sibling.

Davis showcased an early affinity for the dramatic arts. To fill the solitude at home, she engaged in her school’s theater club, actively participating in various small-scale productions. Upon completing high school, she relocated to Montreal, enrolling at McGill University. After her graduation, Davis moved to New York in pursuit of broader acting opportunities.

Mackenzie Davis’ acting journey in New York opened up greater avenues for her. She debuted in the film industry in 2012 with “Smashed”, portraying the character Millie. The following year saw her in “Breathe In” as Lauren Reynolds, a role that unfortunately did not catapult her to widespread fame.

Concurrently, Davis featured in “The F Word”, sharing the screen with notable actors like Daniel Radcliffe, Zoe Kazan, Megan Park, and Adam Driver, portraying the supporting character Nicole. This film marked her first significant breakthrough. She continued her ascent with “That Awkward Moment”, co-starring alongside Zac Efron, Miles Teller, and Michael B. Jordan.

Between 2014 and 2017, Davis graced the television series “Halt and Catch Fire”. In 2016, she made an appearance in an episode of “Black Mirror”. Despite her forays into television, Davis’ passion remained with cinema. In 2015, she was featured in “Freaks of Nature” and “The Martian”, the latter alongside stars like Matt Damon and Jessica Chastain.

2017 was a pivotal year with the release of “Blade Runner 2049”, where Davis portrayed Mariette, alongside a stellar cast including Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford. The film was lauded by critics. That same year, she played a lead role in “Tully”, sharing the spotlight with Charlize Theron.

2019 heralded the premiere of “Terminator: Dark Fate”, where Davis starred as Grace, a cybernetically augmented human, alongside Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Though the film received several nominations, it failed to clinch any awards. Subsequently, she appeared in “The Turning” and “Happiest Season”.
