Dianna Agron: biography
The American series Glee is a successful project of the television industry. The film received many awards and nominations and became a good start for young actors who appeared in it. Although Dianna Agron played the leading role, she was the last primary actor to be cast. Thus, she hit the big time.
Childhood and youth
According to American sites, Agron's ancestors were Jewish immigrants from Russia. Her parents, Mary and Ronald, often moved, so the girl, who was born in Savannah, spent her childhood in San Francisco and San Antonio. Dianna has a younger brother, Jason. Her father worked as a manager of Hyatt hotels. When Dianna was 15 years old, her parents divorced.
Since early childhood, Dianna has shown her acting skills. When she was very young, Agron began dancing, focusing in ballet, later she mastered hip-hop, even moonlighting as a dance teacher. Agron liked to perform on stage. At Burlingame High School, the girl performed in theatre productions. Besides theatre, Dianna was involved in set costumes and design. After graduating from the school, Agron went to Los Angeles, believing that she would achieve the stardom in cinema.
Dianna’s first acting experience was little-known episodes of television drama series Heroes, CSI: NY, Shark. She got the leading role in the drama TKO. When she played in Veronica Mars, Agron met Kristen Bell, who was the idol of the beginning actress at that time. Kristen appreciated the partner in the film, and said that Dianna was "mysterious, friendly and unconsciously graceful."
Later, Agron starred with Bell in one more film. It was the musical drama film Burlesque. Cher and Christina Aguilera appeared there as well.
It comes as no surprise that Dianna is Taurus because she tenaciously and patiently attended casting calls. Finally, she met the casting director of Fox Studios and went to the set of the series Glee. At the audition, the actress decided to stand out from the crowd and sang a jazz song, whereas the others performed popular singles.
The directors planned only a few episodes with the participation of Dianna, but thanks to her brilliant acting the heroine became a regular character. Later, Agron’s heroine turned into the pet peeve of the series due to her immorality.
Dianna recalled that rehearsals, dancing, recordings lasted 16 hours, as the actors sang live in front of the camera. The lip-synching was inappropriate because the singers had a strained facial expression while singing.
The actress remembers the participation of Gwyneth Paltrow in the film. According to Dianna, the Hollywood star is an ideal woman, who manages to combine the happy motherhood and a successful career.
Dianna lived next door with Lea Michele who performed the role of her rival. Michele told in the interview that girls turned into enemies at work, but they cook cookies together at home.
In 2009, the actress made her debut as a screenwriter and director in the comedy A Fuchsia Elephant, where she also played the leading role alongside Dave Franco. The film was not on general release.
In 2010, Agron met Steven Spielberg at a charity event.

If a reporter asks Dianna in an interview about her personal life, the actress immediately becomes reserved and provides an example of Lindsay Lohan’s biography.
"She is amazing, but you can see what happens when people know too much about your personal life. They cannot perceive you as a professional. I do not want anything like that in my life."
Therefore, Dianna's Instagram page is not a very good source of information. There are professional photos, those from the set or friendly parties. There were rumors about Agron's relationship with her partner, Alex Pettyfer. The actress just joked about it, only adding fuel to the fire.
According to rumors, the reason for the separation of two stars was the arrogant character of Alex and his pathological jealousy. After all, the slim blond woman with a height of 166 cm and the weight of 53 kg poses for glossy magazines and advertising brochures.
Later, Sebastian Stan, who plays the Marvel characters, said he was in love with the heroine of Glee. The young people appeared at public events several times, but six months later the love affair ended. She also dated Australian actor and director Thomas Cocquerel and Josh Hutcherson from The Hunger Games.
