A turbulent childhood inspired Nikki Reed to co-author the screenplay for the acclaimed film "Thirteen" (2003), which in turn launched her career as an actress in features and television.Nikki Reed Biography Current News Profile Girl Friend Wife Children Movies Relationships Twitter Imdb Family Facebook Myspace Pictures Wallpaper Online Video.

That Reed was only 13 when she wrote the script with director Catherine Hardwicke was no surprise, as the teenager had been living far beyond her age for years prior. Hardwicke also cast Reed as the troubled sidekick to Evan Rachel Wood's volatile lead, which led to subsequent wild child roles in Hardwicke's "Lords of Dogtown" (2005) and "The O.C." (Fox, 2003-2007).
 
In 2008, she reunited with Hardwicke to play an ethereally beautiful vampiress in "Twilight." The global attention bestowed on that feature franchise shone a much-deserved spotlight on the actress, whose talents were only beginning to show their true breadth as she approached her second decade.

Born Nicole Houston Reed on May 17, 1988 in Los Angeles, CA, she was the daughter of set designer Seth Reed and wife Cheryl Houston, a hairdresser. Her parents split when Reed was very young, and she spent most of her formative years with her mother.
 
Self-described as bookish and quiet, she blossomed in her twelfth year, though perhaps not in a way her mother had hoped; Reed developed a volatile personality, and within a few years, was experimenting with drugs, alcohol and sex. By fourteen, clashes with her mother forced her to live on her own.

She met Hardwicke while the then set designer was dating her father. Long after the romantic liaison ended, Hardwicke maintained a relationship with Reed. In 2002, they began collaborating on a screenplay based on writing Reed had done through her early teens.
 
Originally intended as a light comedy, it eventually bloomed into something darker and more emotionally true; the duo eventually finished the script for "Thirteen" over the course of six days that winter.

Hardwicke, who made her directorial debut with "Thirteen," originally utilized Reed as an assistant casting director who would help with the numerous young female actresses auditioning for the main roles. But when the producers were unable to find the right actress to play Evie, the popular girl who befriends Evan Rachel Wood's heroine, they reached out to Reed to play the role.
 
She was initially reluctant, but eventually accepted the part, which marked her acting debut. As Evie, Reed was note-perfect as the carefree conduit to a world of freedom for Wood's Tracy, which eventually spirals into self-abuse, drugs, and underage sex. Her chilling performance was singled out by many critics as one of the film's most dramatic elements.
