Zoe Kravitz

Zoe Kravitz has continued her family’s legacy in the arts as a singer and actress in her own right. The daughter of singer Lenny Kravitz and actress Lisa Bonet, Zoe Kravitz came of age in the spotlight. She made her film debut in 2007 in both the romantic comedy No Reservations and the thriller The Brave One. She went on to balance ongoing roles in the X-Men and Divergent action franchises and a part in Mad Max: Fury Road with appearances in independent movies, including The Road Within and Dope, as well as television shows including Californication and Portlandia. Kravitz, who began making music at sixteen, helped form the band Elevator Fight in 2009 and performed with them at South by Southwest. Four years later, she formed the band Lolawolf, named for her two younger siblings. The band released their eponymous first digital album in 2014 and have made three albums together as of 2016.
