Who is Willa Holland? What is net worth of Willa Holland? The HBO sitcom titled ‘The Comeback’ was being touted as the much awaited comeback of popular F.R.I.E.N.D.S star Lisa Kudrow when it hit our television screens in 2005. However, that’s not the only unique thing about the show. It was also the television debut of green eyed beauty Willa Holland, who successfully managed to grab eyeballs amidst all the fan frenzy that surrounded Kudrow’s return.
The 25 year old American actress was born into a well-known film family to cinematographer father Keith Holland and actress mother Darnell Gregorio-De-Palma and was named Willa Joannachance Holland at birth. Following her parents’ divorce, Holland’s mother married acclaimed director Brian De Palma who went on to become the driving force of Willa’s acting career.
During the summer of 1998 when Willa was barely seven years old, she caught the eye of Academy Award winning director Steven Spielberg who was her stepfather’s best friend and neighbour. It was upon Spielberg’s insistence that Willa’s mother enrolled her into the Ford Modelling Agency in Los Angeles.
Within months, Willa’s striking beauty and endearing charm landed her a shoot with Burberry and she went on to become the face of many renowned brands at the tender age of 7. De Palma himself enrolled her into a theatrical talent agency when she was 8. Her first film role came in 2000 when she starred in ‘Ordinary Madness’, a film in which her father was the director of photography. She has never looked back ever since and has succeeded in carving a niche for herself in the enigmatic domain of television and films.

As of 2017, she has established herself as a successful actress, model and voice actress. Currently she is single but has dated ‘Black Swan’ actor Toby Hemingway in the past.
