She made her acting debut as an extra in her father Ron Howard's film Parenthood (1989) and went on to have small roles in films and make stage appearances for the next several years. During this time, Howard also attended New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, later receiving a BFA and moving on to professional drama schools. After she came to the attention of M.

Her performance in As You Like It (2006), directed by Kenneth Branagh and based on the play of the same name by William Shakespeare, earned her a Golden Globe Award nomination. In 2006, she co-wrote and directed the short film Orchids. Howard was born in Los Angeles, California, to writer Cheryl Howard Crew and actor-director Ron Howard, on March 2, 1981. Through her father, she is a granddaughter of actors Rance Howard (born Harold Rance Beckenholdt) and Jean Speegle Howard and a niece of actor Clint Howard.
