Born in Los Angeles on May 10, 1985, Odette Yustman made her acting debut early, as a young, Spanish-speaking student in 1990's Kindergarten Cop. After graduating from high school, she began to build a career in modeling, and appeared in a few movies and TV shows -- including the short-lived series South Beach.
Yustman landed her biggest break when she was cast as the lead in J.J. Abrams' 2008 hit Cloverfield. Since then, the actress has taken on several prime roles, including a lead role in the romantic comedy, You Again, and a guest arc alongside husband Dave Annable on the ABC drama, Brothers & Sisters.
Before marrying fellow actor Annable in Ojai, California on October 10, 2010, Yustman was previously engaged to actor Trevor Wright.
