Early lifeEdit

Goth was born in Guy's Hospital in London, England.[3] Her mother is Brazilian and her father is Canadian, originally from Nova Scotia.[4] Her maternal grandfather is Jewish-American artist Lee Jaffe, and her maternal grandmother is Brazilian actress Maria Gladys.[5]

Goth moved to Brazil when she was a few weeks old, because her mother, who was 20 at the time, needed help from her family to raise her.[3] They returned to the United Kingdom when she was five and briefly relocated to her father's native Canada when she was ten.[3] There, she attended nine schools in a single school year; Goth said that the period when they tried living with her father was very difficult.[3] When she was twelve, she and her mother settled in southeast London, where she attended secondary school.[3]

CareerEdit

When Goth was 14, she was discovered at the Underage Festival in London by fashion photographer Gemma Booth, who signed her to Storm Model Management. She subsequently appeared in advertisements for Vogue and Miu Miu. She began to audition for films at 16, and after finishing sixth form, won her first role in Lars von Trier's Nymphomaniac (2013), along with Charlotte Gainsbourg and Willem Dafoe in the segment "The Gun".[6][7] Goth played Sophie Campbell in an episode of Sky Atlantic's crime drama series The Tunnel.[6][8]

In 2014, she appeared in Future Unlimited's music video for "Haunted Love," directed by Shia LaBeouf.[9] She then appeared in the Stephen Fingleton directed introductory short film Magpie with Martin McCann.[9] In 2015, Goth played the lead role of Milja in the post-apocalyptic thriller The Survivalist directed by Fingleton, followed by roles as Meg Weathers in the disaster adventure-thriller film Everest (2015) directed by Baltasar Kormákur,[6][7] and Hanna Helmqvist in an episode of BBC One's crime series Wallander.[9]

She also appeared in the horror film A Cure for Wellness (2016) directed by Gore Verbinski;[7] and had supporting roles in Luca Guadagnino's remake of Suspiria (2018) and the sci-fi mystery film High Life (2018) directed by Claire Denis.[10] Goth appeared in Guadagnino's short film The Staggering Girl (2019)[11] and Autumn de Wilde's period romantic comedy film Emma (2020).[12] She also starred in Karen Cinorre's action drama film Mayday (2021) with Grace Van Patten and Juliette Lewis.[13]

Goth starred in Ti West's slasher film X, released in March 2022 to critical acclaim.[14] She received praise for her roles as both protagonist Maxine Minx and antagonist Pearl, with West stating, "She understood the characters really well, and she understood the duality of Maxine and Pearl."[15] She will also star in the prequel film Pearl, which began filming immediately after X.[16]

Personal lifeEdit

Goth met American actor Shia LaBeouf while co-starring in Nymphomaniac in 2012. On 10 October 2016, Goth and LaBeouf appeared to get married in a Las Vegas ceremony officiated by an Elvis impersonator.[17] Two days later, a local official claimed that the pair were not legally married, but instead a commitment ceremony was performed.[18] Later that month, LaBeouf confirmed their nuptials on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.[19] In September 2018, it was announced the couple had separated and filed for divorce.[20] However, in February 2022, it was reported that Goth was pregnant with their first child.[21][22] In March 2022, Goth gave birth to their child.[23][24]
