French-American actress, Stephanie Szostak (show-stack) never thought of becoming an actress. She left France after high school to study business and play varsity golf at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia. Upon graduating college, Szostak landed a job in marketing at Chanel in New York and was eventually asked to model for one of their in-house brochures. It was at that moment that she decided to take a leap of faith and start a modeling career at 26-years-old. Three years later, Szostak took her first acting class in New York City and knew that she had finally found her passion. Soon after, she landed a role opposite Meryl Streep in the iconic film, "The Devil Wears Prada."

Most recently, Szostak appeared in guest roles on the TV Land series "Younger," Bravo's "Girlfriend's Guide to Divorce," and CBS' "Bull." She also starred opposite Matt Passmore in USA Network's "Satisfaction," a provocative drama from Sean Jablonski ("Nip/Tuck," "Suits") that explored a modern marriage at its core. Additionally, Szostak appeared in the Ricky Blitt-directed independent comedy "Hit by Lightning" alongside Jon Cryer and Will Sasso, and co-stared opposite Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges in Universal Pictures' "R.I.P.D." In 2013, Szostak took on her first action role as the villain 'Brandt' opposite Robert Downey, Jr. in Marvel's "Iron Man 3." The film, also starring Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle and Guy Pearce, brought in $174 million domestically in its opening weekend and has since passed the $1 billion mark globally. Also in 2013, Szostak appeared in Ross Krauss' "Gimme Shelter" with Vanessa Hudgens, Brendan Fraser and Rosario Dawson. A big reason for this is the COVID-19 pandemic. Prior to lockdowns, Szostak had been able to work on the show in British Columbia, then fly back to her family in Connecticut. But as Nash explained, that was no longer possible with COVID. "The second she stepped out of Canada, there was a 14-day reset ... So we wrote her out for [Season 3], thinking, 'Oh, she'll be back.' And then she said, 'I really need to be with my family more, I don't want to do all the episodes.'"

Born in France on June 12, 1975, Stephanie Szostak was raised in the suburbs of Paris. She was a competitive golfer in her teens and played on the golf team when she moved to the United States to attend the College of William & Mary, in Williamsburg, Virginia. She majored in business and initially put her degree to use when she was hired in the marketing department for Chanel in New York City. But her marketing career was short-lived, as she took a class in acting, and fell in love with the craft. Szostak's first big break was the 2006 comedy "The Devil Wears Prada," in which she played Jacqueline Follet, a rival editor opposite Meryl Streep's Miranda Priestly. After that role, Szostak worked consistently, playing mostly supporting roles in a number of independent films and guest spots on TV shows, including "The Sopranos" (HBO, 1999-2007) and "Law and Order: Criminal Intent" (NBC, 2001-2011). In 2010, she starred as Paul Rudd's girlfriend in "Dinner for Schmucks," an adaptation of the French play The Dinner Game, which had previously been adapted into a hit French-language film. In 2011, she played a supporting role opposite Matt Damon in "We Bought A Zoo," then, in 2013, had roles in two comic book adaptations: "Iron Man 3," and "RIPD." In 2014, she starred as Grace Truman, a woman having an affair to escape her unsatisfying marriage, in the drama series "Satisfaction" (USA 2014-).
