Everything You Need To Know About Phoebe Tonkin

Every so often, we spot a new trendsetter guaranteed to get our wardrobes in a spin. Well, that’s exactly what Phoebe Tonkin is doing right now. Haven’t heard of her just yet? Don’t worry, you soon will.

Probably best known for playing wolf girl Hayley Marshall in The Vampire Diaries (and the subsequent spin off The Originals), 25-year-old Phoebe has been impressing us with her fashion prowess thanks to some knock-out red carpet looks, not to mention some epic off-duty style.

So, to celebrate our new found admiration, and to bring you up to speed, here’s five things you need to know about this star…


1. The A-Lister Boyfriend

Phoebe is currently dating hottie Paul Wesley after first meeting on set of The Vampire Diaries back in 2012. Phoebe even admitted in a recent interview that Paul, 35 is her ‘best friend’. Cute!

2. Her Endearing Goofiness

Phoebe has no problem laughing at herself, making her a girl after our own hearts. Over the weekend, the green-eyed beauty posted an Instagram vid of herself dancing somewhat hypnotically to Sia’s ‘Elastic Heart’. The explanation? ‘This is what happens when you don’t have a TV, any furniture or a functioning kitchen. Happy Sunday folks’.

3. The Cult Lookalike

Phoebe has made references on Instagram to the fact she bears a striking resemblance to Twin Peaks beauty Mädchen Amick…and we have to agree. Could Phoebe be cast in the new Twin Peaks revamp playing Shelly Johnson’s sister? Watch this space…

4. Her Aussie Beginnings

Phoebe was born in Sydney and attended dance classes from the age of four. By 12, she was taking courses at the Australian Theatre for Young People (ATYP) at the Wharf Theatre, and won her big break in 2005 when she was cast as Cleo Sertori on the Australian children television series H2O: Just Add Water. She moved to LA in 2011, and the rest as they say, is history,

5. The Legs

To say this girl has a great pair of pins is something of an understatement – and she certainly makes the most of them! From date night shorts to glamorous frocks, this young lady knows how to work her best assets.
