Rebecca Breeds


An incredibly gifted actress, Australian-born Rebecca Breeds continues to climb. 

Breeds stars in the title role of CBS’s CLARICE. Set in 1993, a year after the harrowing event of The Silence of The Lambs, the gripping series follows iconic FBI agent Clarice Starling as she returns to the field while navigating the politics of Washington DC and the trauma of her experience with Hannibal.

In 2015, she starred as 'Aurora de Martel' in  the supernatural drama The Originals, a spinoff of "The Vampire Diaries."  Created by Julie Plec, the series centres around a clan of power-hungry vampires as they take back the city they built and conquer those who wronged them.

Rob Greenberg’s comedy We Are Men marked her first US television role in 2013. She joined the talented cast starring Kal Pen, Jerry O’Connell, Chris Smith, and Tony Shalhoub  as ‘Abby Russo’ as Frank Russo (Shahloub) daughter.  

Her performance as  'Ruby Buckton' in Australian 7 Network's long-running series Home and Away earned her multiple Logie Award nominations - Most Popular New Female Talent in 2009 and  Most Popular Actress in 2010.

In 2006, she made her Australian television debut in Blue Water High, a teen drama series set at a school for surfers.

Additional television credits include Craig Sweeny's The Code, ABC Family’s hit mystery-thriller series Pretty Little Liars, NBC's The Brave, ABC's Notorious, John Glenn's pilot Miranda’s Rights and Mushroom Pictures' mini-series Molly. 

On the big screen, Breeds starred in Partho Sen-Gupta's Slam, opposite Adam Bakri and Rachael Blake which premiered at the 2019 Sydney Film Festival.

She also joined the cast of Ben Elton's Aussie comedy Three Summers which premiered at the 2017 Melbourne International Film Festival and later screened at the 2018 Edinburgh International Film Festival. 

In 2013, she starred in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, which topped India’s 59th Filmfare Awards. Her feature film debut was in Dan Castle's Newcastle, which was nominated for Best Narrative Feature at the 2008 Tribeca Film Festival.

“Rebecca Breeds is a very talented actor. She was so focused and driven as a young lady. Later in her studies, when Rebecca was working on Blue Water High and Home and Away, she somehow continued with classes and found a way to balance it all together. She didn’t miss a beat for years. A few years into her career, when I interviewed Rebecca, I said to her, “Bec I honestly can’t see you not going places. You’re too talented, focused and kind not to be liked and hired.” It’s no surprise she is where she is today.”
