Five Little-Known Facts about Daredevil’s Deborah Ann Woll

Deborah Ann Woll is now a permanent fixture in the Marvel adventure universe and has had major success with the Daredevil Netflix series.  Before the fame and point Deborah is at today, she made several TV appearances in some of the most notable shows such as CSI, Law and Order, ER and The Mentalist. You may remember her for her role in True Blood.  She portrayed Jessica Hamby, alongside other bloody vampires.  The series ran for six years or seven seasons before coming to an end in 2014.

The Daredevil series is a major change for the 30-year-old actress who also hopes to take on more starring roles in the future.  She already has a leading role in “Forever” but has remained the down-to-earth individual that she is. To help you understand Deborah Ann Woll better, keep reading to find out more about her.

She has a disease

Deborah has Celiac disease and has had it for a long time.  For those of you who do not know about Celiac disease, the people who have it have severe reactions to foods containing gluten.  This is not something that Woll can’t deal with as she adapts well to eating foods that do not contain gluten.  She avoids foods with wheat in them and makes it a point to eat more rice, meats, beans and veggies.  So, don’t be surprised to find a bag of chips or some homemade, organic rice cakes in Deborah’s bag.

Being a regular on True Blood was accidental

When Deborah Woll first appeared on True Blood, they were halfway through shooting the first season and she was extremely surprised to find an offer to stay on as initially, it was to be only two episodes.  The actress recalls her character being a “punishment for Bill.”  Woll played a “frightened human child” and then an “annoying, bratty teen in the second episode.”  They asked her before the end of the season to come back and do regular appearances.  Maybe they saw “potential in the character” or maybe they saw potential in the actress.  Either way, it was a win-win for all parties.

Blonde is her true color

While most of her characters are best played with fire red hair, Deborah Woll is a natural blonde.  She started dying her hair at the early age of 14, during high school as a means of standing out.  You’d be surprised to know she dyes her own hair instead of going to a salon.  She says the cost is less than $10 if she does it herself so why spend hundreds because she is a celebrity?  I’m with you, Deborah, why?!

According to Elle magazine, the shy young blonde found herself fading into the background at school so she made the decision to become a redhead like Rita Hayworth or Katherine Hepburn to call attention to herself, dreaming someone would give her the nickname, “Red.”

Watched lots of videos about animals

Woll watched plenty of animal flicks attempting to get into character for the film much like other actresses before taking on the role of a killer or specific but difficult character.  She also read about vampires to help her with the role.  Additionally, Woll paid particular attention to how wild animals react while being attacked or how they behaved being the attacker.  Apparently, it worked! She feels that most humans are not stalkers or killers and it was something she had to practice to really understand the nature of someone or something who owned these traits.

Used a dating site

Almost every woman wants a partner to share her life with and Deborah Ann is not any different.  It was during the time that True Blood was in process and in efforts to maintain status quo, she took to writing her profile on  One would think, being a celebrity you wouldn’t be caught dead on a dating site, however, it’s really popular among high-profile individuals who really don’t have the time to search for compatible partners.

Deborah Woll’s match, EJ Scott, have much in common and fell in love with each other pretty much after the first meeting.  It’s sad, however, to find that EJ has a condition called choroideremia.  This eye disease is not curable and will eventually lead to blindness.  The bright side is that the couple have their lives ahead of them and they look forward to spending time together and use their illnesses to bring strength into the relationship and into the lives of others.  Deborah finds comfort in raising money for EJ’s disease while he runs marathons to help raise awareness and funding for the same reasons.
