Why Darby Camp Is The Real Star?


If you’ve started watching Sky Atlantic’s addictive new drama Big Little Lies, you just can’t help but adore Darby Camp. Playing the role of the music-obsessed and smart Chloe in the star-studded adaptation of Liane Moriarty’s novel, this nine-year-old actress effortlessly holds her own alongside on-screen mom Reese Witherspoon, stealing scenes from her more experienced co-stars with an eye-roll or a hilarious one-liner. That’s why she’s already our favorite rising star of 2017!

1. She’s just nine years old, but she’s already worked with the best in the business

So, get this – Darby was born in North Carolina on July 14th, 2007. Feeling ancient yet? At the ripe age of eight, she made her first big splash on TV, appearing in one episode of The Leftovers alongside Justin Theroux in 2015. But hold on tight, because her real breakthrough came when she absolutely nailed it as Chloe Mackenzie in Big Little Lies. Now she can casually drop names like Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley, Zoe Kravitz, and Laura Dern. Talk about rubbing elbows with the stars!

2. Her character Chloe is the sassiest child we’ve seen on the small screen to date

Whether she’s grabbing her mom’s attention by shouting ‘Woman!’ like she’s in charge, sneaking her smartphone into school hidden in her doll, or telling her new classmate about her dreams of running a major label one day, Chloe Mackenzie has that sassy charm that only a primary schooler with adorable curly hair can pull off.

3. Darby Camp remained ice cool when meeting Reese Witherspoon for the first time

When I met Reese, who plays my on-screen mom and has won an Oscar, Darby Camp was totally unfazed because I had no idea who she was. I asked my mom, “What’s she famous for?” and she filled me in on all the stuff she’s done. Then me, my mom, and my sister watched “Hot Pursuit” and “Legally Blonde”. It was really cool getting to work with her. She was super nice.

4. Her mom is also one of her best friends

Darby’s mom, Lacy Camp, is not only her constant companion on shoots but also the one who handles her Instagram and Twitter (which makes perfect sense to us). After all, Lacy was once an aspiring actress herself!

5. Darby Camp fellow Big Little Lies kids are micro squad goals

Just look at them! Darby Camp The little ones from Big Little Lies may not always behave like angels on screen, but in real life, the pint-sized cast (including Chloe Coleman, twins Cameron and Nicholas Crovetti, Ivy George, and Iain Armitage) are the best of friends. And let’s not forget Darby’s adorable friendship with Iain (aka BLL Ziggy, also on Instagram) – it’s extra cute!’

6. And Darby Camp pals with her co-stars’ children, too

Darby Camp While shooting Big Little Lies in the beautiful coastal town of Monterey, she quickly became friends with Nicole Kidman’s daughters Faith (six) and Sunday (eight). She said to Vulture: ‘I thought that was really cool, not just because famous people live there, but because I got to hang out at my friends’ house and they were super nice.’ So young, yet so wise.

7. Her Instagram profile is perfect

First of all, Darby Camp profile pic is all about that Oscar flex. And then, check out her bio, straight to the point: ‘Kid and Actress.’ But it’s the pics themselves that really steal the show. We’re talking Reese Witherspoon casually playing with her hair on set, or a wrap party pic with Nicole Kidman. Follow her on @darbyecamp.
