There’s something to be said for a versatile talent who can segue between acting, singing and dancing. But it’s a whole other level when that talent is does each expertly AND can open a feature film budgeted at a mere $4.8 million which grosses $122 million worldwide in a manner of weeks. That breakout star is, Ruby Modine, who starred opposite Jessic Rothe, Charles Aitken, and Isreal Broussusrf in Blumhouse’s Happy Death Day which was expected be a quick seasonal opening this past October and has gone to spawn a franchise on the tails of its extraordinary success.
Multi-talented Ruby, the daughter of Matthew Modine and Caridad Rivera, a makeup and wardrobe stylist, currently stars in Showtime’s award winning “Shameless” as the problematic, rebellious character, ‘Sierra,’ on the critically lauded show. One of the new waitresses in the show’s ‘Patsy Pies’ diner managed by Emmy Rossum’s ‘Fiona Gallagher,’ the brilliant, ensemble dark comedy allows Ruby to tap into her thespian skill set opposite Jeremy Allen White (‘Lip’), William H. Macy (‘Frank’), Ethan Cutkosky (‘Carl’) and Emma Kenney (‘Debbie’) among others. Her character spiraled in a myriad of directions this past season leaving viewers salivating for more. What happens now to Lip and Sierra’s love affair in the forthcoming season 9 is the ultimate question viewers are waiting to find out. Ruby, with innate insight into her character’s psyche and relationships is well-versed on the intricacies of one of the best hours on television
While on hiatus from Shameless, Ruby, is gearing up for director Christopher Landon’s Happy Death Day 2 which will follow a college student who is murdered on her birthday and begins reliving the day over and over again; at that point, she sets out to find the killer and stop her death. Think a unique meld of “Groundhog Day” meets “Scream” from uber successful Jason Blum’s production banner for release by Universal timed to Halloween 2018.
During time off the set, Modine can be found supporting cutting edge organizations from the ACLU to the Humane Society. One of Chanel’s favorite young Hollywood go-to gals, Ruby Modine’s style is always eye-turning whether on the red carpet, on the pages of the trendiest magazines or out for an afternoon with gal pals.
