Childhood & Upbringing

Elizabeth Dean Lail was born on the 25th of March 1992 in Williamson County, Texas, U.S. Her parents are Kay Lurene Surratt and Dean Franklin Lail. She also has an older sister named Kathryn Dean Lail. She grew up in Asheboro, North Carolina, a small town with a rich history and culture. She discovered her passion for acting when she was 14 years old, after participating in a community theater production of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. She enjoyed the experience of bringing stories to life on stage, and decided to pursue her dream of becoming an actress. She attended Asheboro High School. She then moved to Winston-Salem, North Carolina, to study drama at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. There, she honed her skills and talents in various student film productions, such as Model Airplane and Without. She also completed her senior year of highschool and later graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 2014, and soon after moved to New York City to seek more opportunities in theater and television.

Professional Career

Following her graduation in May 2014, Lail started working on small projects. While most of Lail’s career came after her University days, she did work on the 2011 short film, Model Airplane. After a 3-year hiatus, Lail worked for another short film, Without. In the same year, Lail was cast on the hit TV series, Once Upon a Time. She played the role of Anna and was cast in the fourth season of the show. She made recurring appearances in 10 episodes. Glad for the entire experience, Lail revealed in an interview that she would never forget her time on set.

“It was all so magical. It was my first job so I felt as if I had died and gone to heaven. I treasure the people I met the most.”

Rise to Fame

Lail continued to work in television and landed a starring role as Amy Hughes in the Freeform horror series Dead of Summer in 2016. She also appeared as Natalie Luca in The Blacklist and Emily Chapin in The Good Fight in 2017. However, her most notable role came in 2017 when she was cast as Guinevere Beck, the female lead, in the Lifetime/Netflix psychological thriller series You, opposite Penn Badgley and Shay Mitchell. The series was released in 2018 and became a huge hit, attracting millions of viewers and earning critical acclaim. Lail’s portrayal of Beck, a young woman who becomes the obsession of a stalker, was praised by critics and fans alike. She was nominated for Best Actress in Streaming Presentation at the 45th Saturn Awards for her role. She also reprised her role as Beck in guest appearances on the second and fourth season of You. Talking about how she landed the role, Lail revealed,

“I auditioned for it like anything else. As I got closer and closer to being cast I felt as if the role of Beck really fit me, and my chemistry with Penn was real. I had also wanted to work with the creators for a long time, and loved that half of them were women.”

While Lail had not read the books before her appearance, she did manage to finish the books between auditions. This allowed Lail to fully understand what she was getting into. While Lail’s portrayal of Beck was spot on, she did have some early struggles.

“Playing her makes you feel like you are constantly in a state of struggle. It’s as if she is carrying the weight of the world on her shoulders, even when she’s with her supposed « friends. » It comes to a climax at the end of the show.”

Roles after Breakthrough

Since the breakthrough, Lail has appeared in several movies and television shows. She made her film debut in 2019 with the horror film Countdown, where she played the lead role of Quinn Harris, a nurse who tries to cheat death after downloading an app that predicts when she will die. The film was a commercial success, grossing over $48 million worldwide against a budget of $6.5 million. Lail received mixed reviews for her performance, with some critics praising her charisma and others finding her character underdeveloped.

In 2021, Lail appeared in several projects, including the HBO Max teen drama Gossip Girl, where she played Lola Morgan, a recurring character who is involved in a scandal with one of the main characters. She also starred as Jenny Banks, one of the three love interests of the titular character, in the NBC drama series Ordinary Joe, which premiered on September 20, 2021. Additionally, she was cast as Mack, the lead role opposite Diane Keaton, in the comedy film Mack & Rita, which released in 2022. She also lent her voice to the animated series Robot Chicken, playing Anna from Frozen in a parody sketch. She also joined the cast of the HBO Max reboot of Gossip Girl, playing Lola Morgan, a social media influencer who gets entangled in the drama of the Upper East Side.

In 2023, she will appear in two films: Gonzo Girl and Five Nights at Freddy’s. Gonzo Girl is a drama based on the novel by Cheryl Della Pietra, which is inspired by her experience as an assistant to Hunter S. Thompson. Lail plays Devaney Peltier, a young writer who gets involved with the eccentric novelist. Five Nights at Freddy’s is a horror film based on the popular video game franchise of the same name. Lail plays Vanessa Monroe, a security guard who works at a haunted pizzeria where animatronic characters come to life at night.


While Lail has remained out of major controversies she still has faced some for her career choices.

One of the most controversial aspects of Lail’s career is her involvement in the Netflix series You, which is based on the novel by Caroline Kepnes. The series follows Joe Goldberg, a bookstore manager who becomes obsessed with Guinevere Beck, an aspiring writer and graduate student. Joe stalks, manipulates, and kills anyone who stands in his way of being with Beck, who is unaware of his true nature. Lail plays Beck, the main victim and love interest of Joe, who is portrayed by Penn Badgley.

The series has been criticized for glamorizing and romanticizing stalking and violence, and for portraying Joe as a sympathetic anti-hero despite his horrific actions. Some viewers have expressed their attraction and admiration for Joe, while others have blamed and shamed Beck for her flaws and mistakes. Lail herself has expressed her dissatisfaction with the ending of the first season, where Beck is killed by Joe. She said that she was “sick and tired” of seeing women being victims on TV shows, and that she wished for a different outcome for her character.
