ABOUT THE CAST: RUBY SPARKS is the first screenplay written by ZOE KAZAN (Ruby Sparks/Written by/Executive Producer). An acclaimed theater actress and 2005 graduate of Yale University, Zoe made her New York stage debut in 2006 in the Off-Broadway revival of The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie opposite Cynthia Nixon. She continued to shine on stage in 2007, starring in Jonathan Marc Sherman's Things We Want, directed by Ethan Hawke, and Playwrights Horizons’ production of 100 Saints You Should Know, for which she received a Drama Desk Award nomination for Outstanding Featured Actress in a Play, as well as the Lucille Lortel Award nomination for Outstanding Featured Actress. In January 2008, Zoe made her Broadway debut opposite S. Epatha Merkerson in a revival of William Inge's Come Back, Little Sheba. Following this role, Zoe was named the recipient of the 2008 Clarence Derwent Award, honoring “the most promising female and male performers on the New York metropolitan scene.” She is the only actor to be awarded the Derwent Award for three roles in one year: Come Back, Little Sheba; 100 Saints You Should Know and Things We Want. Since then, she has returned twice to Broadway: in 2009 as Masha in Ian Rickson's critically acclaimed production of The Seagull, opposite Kristin Scott Thomas, Peter Sarsgaard and Carey Mulligan; and in 2010 in Martin McDonagh's comedy A Behanding in Spokane opposite Christopher Walken and Sam Rockwell. Zoe returned to Off-Broadway in the fall of 2010, starring as Harper in The Signature Theatre Company's revival of Tony Kushner's Angels In America. Zoe is also a promising playwright, whose family drama Absalom was produced at the Humana Festival at the Actor’s Theater of Louisville in 2009. Her second play, We Live Here, was produced Off- Broadway by The Manhattan Theatre Company in the fall of 2011, in a production directed by Sam Gold. As Zoe continues her success in the theatre, she also has been working consistently on the big screen. Zoe received high praise for her breakout role as Maureen Grube in Sam Mendes’ REVOLUTIONARY ROAD opposite Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet. She also appeared in Paul Haggis’ thriller IN THE VALLEY OF ELAH with Charlize Theron, Gregory Hoblit’s FRACTURE with Ryan Gosling, Rebecca Miller’s THE PRIVATE LIVES OF PIPPA LEE, Richard Linklater's ME AND ORSON WELLS, Josh Radnor's HAPPYTHANKYOUMOREPLEASE, Kelly Reichardt's MEEK'S CUTOFF with Paul Dano and Michelle Williams, and Nancy Meyers' IT'S COMPLICATED with Meryl Streep. Zoe was awarded Best Actress in a Narrative Feature Film by the Tribeca Film Festival in 2009 for her first starring role, in Bradley Rust Gray's THE EXPLODING GIRL. She also guest-starred in four episodes of HBO's BORED TO DEATH, opposite Jason Schwartzman. Since wrapping RUBY SPARKS, Zoe has acted in three independent films, including starring roles in the upcoming IN YOUR EYES, written and produced by Joss Whedon, and THE PRETTY ONE, written and directed by Jenee Lamarque and co-starring Jake Johnson.

THE CREATING OF RUBY “Maybe we knew each other in another life. Or maybe we just go to the same coffee shop.” -- Ruby Sparks Zoe Kazan might have created all the tricky layers of Ruby Sparks on the page but doing the same thing as an actress was a completely different challenge. “As Ruby, Zoe had to become the heart of the movie,” notes Ron Yerxa, “Zoe plays her as a free-spirited, autonomous young woman. Ruby had a punk past and she’s now an artist. She’s sexy and attractive, but she very much has her own mind.” Adds Albert Berger: “One of the great aspects of Zoe’s writing and performance as Ruby is that she comes off as a real person who gets frustrated, gets bored and feels uninspired by her situation and I think in those imperfections we all see ourselves.” For Kazan, it was exciting to explore a character who naturally mirrors some of her own creative outlook but who is in other ways decidedly unlike herself. “I gave Ruby some qualities that I probably possess, but she’s also very different,” Kazan explains. “I like to be taken care of and Ruby’s much more independent. She likes to speak her mind. She’s very brave that way. It was always important to me that she not seem at all like a dream girl, but very real, so the challenge was in figuring out how to do that.” “To have a couple directing a couple made a strong connection for us,” says Dano. “Val and Jon were role models for us because they seem to get along so well all the time. They have discussions that are civil but very passionate about creative choices – and we looked up to that in terms of how we wanted to work together.” Kazan and Dano had met while doing a play together and previously acted together in Kelly Reichardt’s western MEEK’S CUTOFF. Recognizing their real-life chemistry as a vital resource, Dayton & Faris tapped into Dano and Kazan’s romantic past. Explains Faris: “We used the history of how they met, and the first time they kissed, and it really brings a believability that would be hard to get with two actors who didn’t know each other in that way. They were able to share all their authentic experience from when they first started to recognize that they were heading towards a romance.” Ultimately, a certain alchemy took over. “By the time we saw the film for the first time, one of the first things we said afterwards was that we didn’t feel like we were looking at ourselves up there. It wasn’t Paul and Zoe but two other people in their own relationship,” concludes Kazan. © 2012 Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation and Dune Entertainment III LLC in all territories except Brazil, Italy, Japan, Korea and Spain. © 2012 TCF Hungary Film Rights Exploitation Limited Liability Company, Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation and Dune Entertainment III LLC in Brazil, Italy, Japan, Korea and Spain.
