Young Hollywood recognizes Odeya Rush
Odeya, which means “Thank G-d” in Hebrew, earned a nomination for her role as Joni Jerome in the Disney film The Odd Life of Timothy Green, co-starring Jennifer Garner and Mark Ruffalo.
After moving to the United States at age nine, Rush began her acting career just three short years later, securing numerous commercials and short films. In 2010, she landed her first major guest spot on Law and Order: Special Victims Unit and soon after followed that with a role on Larry David’s Curb Your Enthusiasm.
Rush, now 15, has two major films in pre-production and will soon find herself in the company of Hollywood veterans Shirley MacLaine, Alan Arkin, John Turturro, Ben Kingsley and Peter O’Toole.
