BiographyChloë Grace Moretz began a career in entertainment at the tender age of five. She began in New York City as a national model in many print outlets and television commercials. At age six she moved with her family to Los Angeles where her career took a theatrical turn. Quickly after moving to California, Chloë booked a recurring role on the CBS show The Guardian with Simon Baker. She had the fortune of being directed by Emilio Estevez for her very first theatrical outing. Her first feature film came soon thereafter in an independent film The Heart of the Beholder.
