About Genevieve Johnson
Genevieve’s grandparents migrated from Italy back in those days, and since then, the family has been a permanent resident of Minnesota, USA. She is from Mankato, Minnesota.
Genevieve was born on March 27, 2005. She has four siblings, two brothers (Paul and Buddy Johnson) and two sisters (Suzy and Jolene Johnson). She is the youngest of all. Her parent’s name is Rupert and Jolene.
Her brother Buddy is the most supportive of all. Even he is fascinated with the entertainment industry. His name is Buddy because he’s a huge fan of the Cake Boss.
Genevieve is the only one in the family determined to have a career as an actress in the industry. At the age of 16, when most of us are simply doing what teenagers do, she is sure about her career choice and is focused.
We all know how harsh the industry is for a newcomer, especially if you do not have the proper connection. Well, nothing can stop this rising talent in the industry. She has been traveling back and forth from Minnesota to LA.
Genevieve has played many minor roles in movies such as Bumblebee, Succession, a Kid Cudi music video, and other indie movies. She was also supposed to be in an all-female reboot of Les Mis, which was supposed to release in May. Unfortunately, due to the COVID, the movie was never announced.
Well, while most may feel demotivated but nothing can withhold the spirits of this young star. So Genevieve went for a private street casting where she bumped into the casting director while walking around. She was there during the pilot season.
She was then auditioned for the movie Knives Out 2. The audition was for Joseph Gordon Levitt’s sister; however, Rian Johnson found her better suited for the sassy “Genna Damilio.”
Genevieve has learned acting from the Acting School Chicago. In addition, she has taken a lot of acting classes. She even took her summer classes at DePaul.
Her favorite role
In an interview, Genevieve Johnson stated that she loves the role of Ethan Hawke. She said, “He is such a great performer, and he can nail every part, but it just feels like this one was made for him.” However, she didn’t disclose any more information about the character played by him due to the contact.
However, she assured us that role was something the viewers have never seen before. Ooo! It sounds exciting!!!

Well, we honestly cannot wait to see the rising star in the movie Knives Out 2. I am personally waiting eagerly. My best wishes are with Genevieve.
