Peltz plays Kate Miller, a spoiled rich girl, in the movie Affluenza. Directed by Kevin Asch and in the style of The Great Gatsby, the movie chronicles the lives of affluent teenagers living in Long Island in 2008.
The Great Gatsby is my favorite book, so anything having to do with that storyline in the least made me really excited. Kate was a really interesting character to play. I had a lot of fun with it. I also love Kevin Asch, he’s such an amazing filmmaker.
Peltz stars in Transformers: Age of Extinction as Tessa Yeager, daughter of Cade Yeager, Mark Wahlberg’s character.
I’d never worked on anything this big before. The sets are amazing. You know, we were in the middle of Detroit and Michael made the sets look like we were in Hong Kong. It’s mind-blowing. You’re in Detroit, you turn one street, you take a left, and you really feel like you’re in Hong Kong. That’s what’s amazing about these movies; it’s that you have these tools, and it’s so much more helpful for the actors because it’s so much more real.
Peltz plays Bradley, a popular and pretty teenager who befriends Norman Bates, in the television series inspired by Alfred Hitchcock’s horror movie Psycho.
I read the pilot and I honestly fell in love with it. I thought it was so interesting and so beautifully written. At the end of it, I was like, “I need to get a second script.” I did audition in L.A. and I was lucky enough to get a call, a few weeks later, that I got it. I was so excited. I’m so lucky to be a part of this project. I’m such a fan of Hitchcock, and Carlton [Cuse] and Kerry [Ehrin] are just so talented. Working with this cast and crew has been amazing.
Peltz stars in this fantasy action film, directed by M Night Shyamalan, as Katara, a young girl who befriends “the one,” thought to be the Avatar. The film is inspired by the television series Avatar: The Last Airbender.
Even to audition, I was very excited. I really think he is one of the most talented directors and I am very lucky to be able to work with him. I feel so blessed to play the part of Katara. When I got the role, I flipped out and my brothers got me a Carvel cake [laughs].
