Born in Savannah, Georgia to Mary and Ronald, a general manager, Dianna Elise Agron is most known for her role as Quinn Fabray on "Glee."
Agron grew up in San Antonio, Texas and San Francisco, California and attended Hebrew School. She went to Burlingame High School and was in the Homecoming Court. "At school, I was a nerd in some ways and pretty average in other ways. I was always the nice girl, so I had friends in many different areas. That worked well for me" (wearemoviegeeks.com).
Dianna Agron said of life growing up in a high-end hotel, "I got to see many walks of life " politicians, athletes, Tony Robbins. It was the ultimate fishbowl."
Before moving to LA, she taught dance classes for 3-year-olds up to 16-year-olds, so "between that and some bat mitzvah money, I saved up a pretty good nest egg to move."
