Where You've Seen The Cast Of Do Revenge Before

Netflix's "Do Revenge" is a subverted Hitchcockian dark comedy directed by Jennifer Kaytin Robinson, who reunites with the streamer following the sleeper romantic comedy hit "Someone Great." Robinson is also known for her recent works with Marvel Studios, having served as a consulting producer on the Disney+ series "Hawkeye" and co-writing "Thor: Love and Thunder" with Taika Waititi.

According to the official Netflix synopsis, this coming-of-age story revolves around two completely different teenage girls, popular Drea and new student Eleanor, who just might be the scariest protagonists of all. After being individually humiliated by their respective bullies, they unexpectedly form a partnership dedicated to seeking revenge on each other's tormentors. The plan: give Eleanor a makeover so that she can lure Drea's ex-boyfriend, while Drea attempts to befriend Carissa, the one responsible for rudely outing Eleanor at summer camp.

Leading the film are "Stranger Things" breakout Maya Hawke and "Riverdale" mainstay Camila Mendes, who have both earned fan-favorite status on their respective popular shows due to their charisma and infectious likability. They're joined by an ensemble cast of young talent, consisting of popular TV stars and rising newcomers. Get to know more about the cast of "Do Revenge" and discover where you've seen them before.

Maya Hawke as Eleanor

Serving as one of the leads in "Do Revenge" is the charming Maya Hawke as Eleanor, described in the synopsis as a "beta alt-girl." Hawke made her acting debut in 2017 when she landed the role of Jo March in the BBC miniseries adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's timeless novel "Little Women." In the following year, she finally appeared in her first feature project, the independent drama "Ladyworld," a reimagining of the acclaimed novel "Lord of the Flies."

Hawke's big break came in 2019 when she joined the cast of Netflix's sci-fi phenomenon "Stranger Things" as the chic Robin Buckley in the show's third season. Due to her delightful and charismatic performance as Robin, she became an instant fan-favorite and a valuable key player in the show's ensemble. During the same year, Hawke made a brief appearance in Quentin Tarantino's "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" as Flowerchild. Audiences were quick to realize that impressive acting abilities might just come naturally when you're the eldest daughter of Oscar nominees Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman. As she told The Guardian, her famous parents were initially wary of her pursuing an acting career due to the difficulties of having a public life.

Following "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood," Hawke continued to appear in a few independent dramas, including "Human Capital" with Liev Schreiber and "Mainstream" with Andrew Garfield. Hawke then got the chance to star alongside her father Ethan in the Showtime series "The Good Lord Bird." Following her turn in "Do Revenge," she can be seen in high-profile films such as Bradley Cooper's Leonard Bernstein biopic "Maestro," Wes Anderson's dramedy "Asteroid City," and in her first collaboration with her mother, "The Kill Room."

Camila Mendes as Drea Torres

Camila Mendes stars in "Do Revenge" as Drea Torres, a fallen it-girl whose life gets ruined after her boyfriend shamelessly spreads a private intimate video of her without her consent. The dark comedy marks Mendes' third collaboration with Netflix after starring in 2019's romantic comedy "The Perfect Date" with Noah Centineo and in 2020's psychological thriller "Dangerous Lies."

Mendes is a Brazilian American actress, who's best known for her role as Veronica Lodge on The CW's long-running teen drama "Riverdale." Before that, her only acting credit was a wholesome IKEA commercial. Speaking with W Magazine, Mendes recalled the long and harrowing audition process she had to go through in order to prove that she was destined for the role of Veronica. Even though she was the clear top choice from the very beginning, she revealed that the producers didn't stop auditions, hoping to find another young actress who could potentially compete with her. "I was crying every night because it felt like I was so close to something that could be big, and like my life and career changing, but in the end it all worked out."

Before landing her breakout TV role, Mendes first studied acting at New York University, where she became friends with future Grammy nominee Maggie Rogers (via Teen Vogue). In 2018, Mendes made her feature acting debut in the romantic comedy-drama "The New Romantic." Besides "Riverdale" and her Netflix work, she also appeared in Hulu's acclaimed time-loop comedy "Palm Springs" with Andy Samberg and in the animated series "Fairfax."

Austin Abrams as Max

Austin Abrams takes the role of Max, the ex-boyfriend of Camila Mendes' Drea and one of the main antagonists in "Do Revenge." At the age of 14, Abrams made his feature acting debut in the direct-to-DVD action thriller "Ticking Clock." After that, he landed small roles in TV shows such as the short-lived MTV sitcom "The Inbetweeners," the acclaimed drama "Shameless," and the HBO comedy "Silicon Valley."

Following a series of recurring roles on hit shows including "The Walking Dead," "The Americans," and "This Is Us," Abrams' big break came in 2020 when he starred in Amazon's romantic drama film "Chemical Hearts" and in Netflix's romantic comedy series "Dash & Lily." Currently, he's best known for playing Ethan Daley in HBO's Zendaya-led series "Euphoria." During the second season of the acclaimed teen drama, Abrams became a fan favorite thanks to his scene-stealing performance in the seventh episode, "The Theater and Its Double," in which his character hilariously plays satirical versions of Nathan Jacobs and Lexi's mom Suze in Lexi's "Our Life" play. His most memorable performance from the episode was his musical number of the Bonnie Tyler song "Holding Out for a Hero."

Besides his rising TV career, Abrams' film credits include appearances in a few independent drama features, including the coming-of-age dramedy "The Kings of Summer," the romantic drama "All Summers End," and dark comedy "Tragedy Girls," as well as major studio films like the film adaptations of "Paper Towns" and "Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark."

Ava Capri as Carissa

In "Do Revenge," Ava Capri portrays Carissa, who (as seen in the official trailer) is the one responsible for ruining Eleanor's reputation by spreading serious lies about her. Before appearing in the Netflix film, Capri frequently starred in independent drama films, including "Write When You Get Work" with Finn Wittock and Emily Mortimer, "The Experience" with Brigitte Nielsen, "Blast Beat" with Moises Arias and Diane Guerrero, "When Time Got Louder" with Willow Shields and Elizabeth Mitchell, and the sports drama "Embattled" with Stephen Dorff and Elizabeth Reaser.

In 2021, Capri's break came when she joined the second season of Hulu's coming-of-age comedy drama "Love, Victor" as Lucy, who is first introduced as the girlfriend of Mason Gooding's Andrew. However, by the third and final season of the Michael Cimino-led series, she eventually becomes the new love interest to Bebe Wood's Lake. Speaking with PinkNews, Capri (who in real life identifies as queer) recalled how playing Lucy in Season 3 was a very meaningful and therapeutic experience for her, because unlike her character, she wasn't able to come out in high school.

Apart from "Love, Victor," Capri also had small roles on the hit sitcom "Parks and Recreation" in 2015 and in the 2018 teen drama "T@gged," which also featured "To All the Boys I've Loved Before" breakout Noah Centineo. Following her turn in "Do Revenge," she can be seen in a pair of short films including "December" from YouTuber-turned-filmmaker Elle Mills.

Alisha Boe as Tara

Alisha Boe portrays Tara, one of the campus' most popular girls. Before appearing in Jennifer Kaytin Robinson's dark comedy, Boe made her acting debut in 2008 at the age of 11 with the anthology horror film "Amusement." After that, she decided to stick with the horror genre as she took on roles in three more supernatural films, including "Paranormal Activity 4," "68 Kill," and "Gates of Darkness" with Jigsaw actor Tobin Bell.

Boe is a Norwegian actress who first gained recognition through her breakout role as Jessica Davis in Netflix's controversial adaptation of "13 Reasons Why," which ran for four seasons between 2017 to 2020. The series was met with criticisms due its graphic depiction of sensitive topics throughout its entire run, particularly with Boe's character Jessica, who went through a complicated character arc as a victim of sexual assault. Speaking with Elle Canada, Boe opened up about what it's been like growing up with her character, revealing that playing Jessica helped her become more brave, inspiring, and resilient.

Boe also made a few appearances in TV shows, including "Modern Family," "NCIS," "Days of Our Lives," "Ray Donovan," and "Teen Wolf." Besides starring in horror films, she also got the chance to star in two comedy films: "Poms" with Diane Keaton, and "Yes, God, Yes" with "Stranger Things" vet Natalia Dyer. Following "Do Revenge," Boe has joined the cast of Jesse Eisenberg's feature directorial debut "When You Finish Saving the World."

Sophie Turner

Director Jennifer Kaytin Robinson has revealed that Sophie Turner would be making a cameo appearance in "Do Revenge" in a scene which finds her screaming at Camila Mendes' character Drea (via ComicBook.com). This marks one of a handful of appearances Turner has made since 2019 saw the end of two long-term projects that made her a star. 

At 14 years old, Turner successfully nabbed her breakout role with HBO's fantasy-drama phenomenon "Game of Thrones," based on George R.R. Martin's bestselling book series "A Song of Ice and Fire." She famously portrayed Sansa Stark for the show's eight-season run from 2011-2019. For her commanding performance and maturity in an arc that saw her grow from a spoiled kid to a fierce leader as the new Queen of the North, she received her first Emmy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series. In an interview with The Cut, Turner opened up about how playing Sansa completely took over her life for ten years, revealing that the show's ending led her to finally start her journey towards personal growth.

On the big screen, Turner took on another iconic role as Jean Grey in 20th Century Studios' "X-Men" films. Having first appeared in 2016's "X-Men: Apocalypse," she took center stage in the troubled follow-up "Dark Phoenix," which wound up serving as a sort of finale for that era of the franchise. Turner also starred in independent dramas such as the psychological thriller "Another Me," the action comedy "Barely Lethal" with Hailee Steinfeld, and the sci-fi dramedy "Time Freak" with Asa Butterfield. Following the conclusion of "Game of Thrones," she starred in Quibi's short-form thriller series "Survive" and played a supporting character in the HBO limited true-crime drama "The Staircase."

Talia Ryder as Gabbi

Rising star Talia Ryder plays the role of Gabbi, who is seemingly set to become the love interest of Maya Hawke's Eleanor. Before venturing into Hollywood, Ryder first starred in the Broadway production of "Matilda the Musical," having landed the role of Hortensia despite having no acting and singing experience prior to the audition process.

Ryder is best known for her feature acting debut in the acclaimed independent drama "Never Rarely Sometimes Always," which won the Silver Bear Grand Jury Prize at the 70th Berlin International Film Festival. In the 2020 drama, Ryder portrays Skylar, the cousin of Sidney Flanigan's Autumn, who accompanies her to New York City to get an abortion. Along with Flanigan, Ryder received praise for her genuine, thoughtful, and powerful yet subtle performance. Thanks to her talent for dancing, she also went on to land a small part in her first major feature with Steven Spielberg's adaptation of the "West Side Story," where she appears as one of the Jets' partners. Speaking with Deepest Dream, Ryder expressed her passion for dancing, revealing that through this performative art form she's able to find confidence in other aspects of her life.

Following her dramatic turn in "Never Rarely Sometimes Always," she appeared in Olivia Rodrigo's music video for her song "Deja Vu." Before "Do Revenge," Ryder also starred in the leading role of Clare in Netflix's romantic drama "Hello, Goodbye, and Everything in Between" starring opposite Jordan Fisher.

Rish Shah as Russ Lee

British actor Rish Shah plays the role of Russ Lee, one of Drea and Eleanor's schoolmates at their prestigious school.

He also appeared in a few TV dramas, including the HBO miniseries "Years and Years" and the soap opera "Emmerdale Farm," as well as the medical dramas "Doctors" and "Casualty."

In an interview with GQ Magazine UK, Shah shared that he got very emotional when he finally learned that he'd be appearing in a Marvel Studios project.

Jonathan Daviss as Elliot
