Early Life, Family, Educational Background
Leven Alice Rambin was born under the zodiac sign of Taurus on 17 May 1990, in Houston, Texas USA. Leven was raised with her brother Joseph Rambin, and also has older half-siblings, Mary and Jay Rambin, who visited from time to time.
Her parents, Joseph Howard Rambin III and Karen Stacy Guthrie, owned a real estate company, so Leven and her siblings didn’t lack for anything they needed.
Leven and her siblings were raised as Christians, and to date, going to church is one of her favorite things to do.
Leven was drawn to the performing arts at a young age, and as she watched a lot of movies growing up, she couldn’t see herself in any other profession, and performed in school plays and talent shows during her childhood. For her education, Leven attended St. Francis Episcopal Day School in Houston, then attained her high school diploma from Texas Tech University Independent School.
To become a professional actor, Leven trained at the Houston School of Film and Theater, and landed her debut role at the age of 13; she subsequently moved to New York City to pursue her dreams.
Leven’s career in the acting profession started when from 2004 through 2008, she played the role of Lily Montgomery, the autistic child of Jack Montgomery in “All My Children”, originally aired on the ABC Network. Later in 2008, it was announced that she would also play Ava Benton, the lookalike half-sister of Lily. Leven Rambin appeared in a total of 162 episodes in the drama series, her consistent top notch performance in the TV series earning her two Daytime Emmy nominations for Outstanding Female Newcomer, and Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series.
Next, she landed the role in “The Book of Daniel” (2006) playing Caroline Paxton. Since then, she’s appeared in several Television Dramas, some of which are “Law and Order: Special Victims Unit” (2007), “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles” (2008), and “Grey’s Anatomy” (2009).
In 2010, Leven starred in “Scoundrels”, a comedy drama in which she played Heather West, and the following year she took a recurring role in “CSI: Miami” (2011), as Molly Sloan. Her most recent appearance in a TV drama series was in “Gone” (2017), a crime drama based on “One Kick”, by Chelsea Cain. In the TV show, she played Kit ‘Kick’ Lannigan, the survivor of a child abduction, and private consultant with the FBI.

Speaking to Interview Magazine, Leven said that she’s more intimidated by film acting, ‘because it’s a definitive beginning and end’.
Over the years, Leven observed female directors in the entertainment industry, and the way they handled shows. So she thought- ‘Why not me too?’ She told Rose & Ivy that she took intensive directing classes at the UCLA School for Directing. Then she began directing films and music videos during the 2020 lockdown.
Leven Rambin reconnected with Ambyr Childers, her co-star in “All My Children” after a long time. They bonded over their divorce experiences, and are now working on a film centered on divorce. They also intend to work with female-owned production companies for its production and release.
In 2013, Leven moved to New York City to study professional acting at the Playhouse West Brooklyn Lab, and now teaches aspiring actors at the institution.

She was 19 years old at the time. However, they broke off the engagement in September of 2011. She then dated Jason Trawick for a short while in 2013.
She married American actor Jim Parrack, in 2015. They had a small wedding at Le San Michele, in Buda, Texas, but two years later she filed for a divorce from the actor for undisclosed reasons.

While they were together, they co-wrote the song “Dead Bones” (2017), which they performed live on several occasions.
