Diana Silvers on female role models and acting on gut instincts
Meet DIANA SILVERS. From CALIFORNIA COOL GIRL to Hollywood star, the model turned actor has had a whirlwind few years. She lets loose on a day in NEW YORK with CASS BIRD, one of fashion’s favourite photographers
HARPER’S BAZAAR – THINGS COULD HAVE gone differently for Diana Silvers. Two days before the actor auditioned for her first major movie, Ma — a horror flick about six teenagers who ask a stranger to buy them alcohol before finding out the woman is all sorts of crazy — her family home burned down in one of the largest wildfires in Californian history. It was December 2017, and Silvers, then a junior at New York University, was studying for her finals when she abruptly left the city to be with her family in Los Angeles.
The wildfire consumed more than 93,000 acres of land, took more than 1000 buildings, and erased everything she had ever owned. “The weird thing about the fire, for me, was that if it hadn’t have happened, I literally would not have had an acting career,” Silvers says over Zoom, her long legs crossed and boyish-brown hair tucked into the hood of her grey university-style Erewhon sweatshirt by the LA streetwear brand Pizzaslime. She explained that there was simply no way in hell her parents would have allowed her to fly home in the middle of finals for a casting call, so if she hadn’t already been in town, she wouldn’t have auditioned. “I went into the room with this no fucks given attitude because I literally had nothing more to lose.”
Her co-star, the Academy Award-winning actor Octavia Spencer, who plays the desperate and deranged mother figure in Tate Taylor’s film, interpreted the rookie’s blasé attitude as “raw talent” mixed with “incredible instincts”, she says. “She reminded me of a young Julia Roberts,” Spencer continues. “I had no idea that she’d never acted but I was certain that she would need proper representation. That’s why I introduced her to my [agents] at the time. I expect big things from her.”
To be clear, big things came for Silvers, 24, and fast. The same year she played Cheerleading Girl in M. Night Shyamalan’s 2019 Glass, she had her star turn as Hope in actor-turned-director Olivia Wilde’s breakout coming-of-age film, Booksmart. Talk about no fucks given: her performance as the impossibly cool high schooler who dons Levi’s and a vintage fringe suede jacket, hates school and hates parties and yet still gets the girl (Kaitlyn Dever’s Amy) would make bad boy John Bender of The Breakfast Club blush. Silvers was only in a few scenes — she was filming another project at the same time and simply couldn’t be on set for more than a handful of days — but she made her mark nonetheless, a feat she credits to Wilde, who is “literally the coolest person and the future of film”.
Not long after Booksmart was released, Ma hit theaters to rave reviews. Next came Space Force, the 2020 workplace comedy series co-created by Steve Carell. Silvers plays Carell and Lisa Kudrow’s seriously over-it teenage daughter, Erin. “I just remember thinking I don’t even care if I get this,” says Silvers of the audition opposite The Office star for the Netflix original series, which returns for a second season in early 2022. “The truth is, I was just happy that I got to spend 20 minutes with Steve Carell. And I’m still just always happy to be in the room.”

From Instagram to 5,000 Theaters: Diana Silvers on ‘Ma’ and ‘Booksmart’
The 21-year-old actress suddenly finds herself being noticed by women she had long admired. “Taylor Swift has seen my face. Cool! Sick!”
NY TIMES – Diana Silvers has been seen in just three movies in her short career, but she has quickly ascended from a bit part in the superhero thriller “Glass” earlier this year to major roles putting her on thousands of screens this weekend: she plays a high school love interest in the female-centric comedy “Booksmart,” and the main teenager menaced by Octavia Spencer’s psycho in the horror tale “Ma.”
The name Diana Silvers may suggest a golden age of Hollywood starlet, but she is as au courant as they come. Discovered as a model on Instagram, she’s beginning her film career in the #MeToo era. “I feel lucky to be entering the industry at this time because people are being held accountable,” the 21-year-old said over orange juice at a downtown Manhattan hotel recently. “I just feel safe. I’m not anxious about anything, except maybe saying something stupid in an interview. And so far, I’ve been extremely lucky.”
Diana Silvers Is the Breakout Star of the Summer
Meet the mean girl of Booksmart and the good girl from Ma.
ELLE – In December 2017, disaster struck Ojai, California. The state’s largest wildfire on record ravaged the community, ultimately destroying 273,400 acres of land across two counties. Homegrown heroine Diana Silvers was roughly 2,800 miles away, tracking the devastation from a New York University seminar, a class titled “Central Problems in Philosophy.” She was 20 years old, and her father’s house was in the direct path of the blaze. (“The fire was a big climate change wake-up call,” she says.) As she watched its progression in real time, her East Coast classmates intellectualized the tragedy. She remembers one girl saying, “If something burns to the ground, the particles are still there, so technically it still remains.” She found their responses to be disorientingly out-of-touch. Her father was still inside the house.
