Leven studied at the Houston School of Film and Theatre and at St. Francis Episcopal Day School before her family moved to Connecticut, and later New York.
Leven was subsequently cast on All My Children portraying the look-alike half-sisters Lily Montgomery and Ava Benton, earning her a nomination for Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series. During this period, she said, I went to Professional Childrens School, but with [work] it was getting to be too much. I never went to a real high school for more than, like six months. She added shes never been to Prom. But when asked by Maxim if she felt, as a child actor, she missed out on a real high school experience, she said, No. I had some pretty gnarly experiences growing up in New York every night was prom!
Other roles followed, included parts on Law & Order: SVU, Lipstick Jungle, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Greys Anatomy, Scoundrels, Wizards of Waverly Place, One Tree Hill and CSI: Miami.

But it was probably her role as Glimmer in the movie adaptation of The Hunger Games that garnered her the most attention. She told Interview Magazine, For The Hunger Games especially, Im more intimidated. First of all, it has a lot of fans built in. It has other amazing actors already built in. So Im just going through the process of training, and just gearing up for a responsibility like this. Im really, really happy about it.
Leven Rambin also signed on to Wilhelmina Models. She has also appeared in the music video for Green Days Stray Heart.
In her free time, Leven Rambin enjoys surfing. She said of her exercise routine before The Hunger Games: I would exercise all the time, but I would never push myself beyond my comfort zone. This showed me how far my body could go if I was willing to push it.
Leven Rambin added about her career, Im lucky that people have written these cool, strong roles for young women. Theyve managed to picture me in that vein, and Im happy because Ive never been the damsel in distress. Ive never been the wilting flower. Ive never been the girl whos subservient to a man. Its been difficult to find roles that are independent, strong and self-assured. I always say I cant play the princess. Im not a pretty princess! Im a tomboy (Teen Vogue).
Leven Rambin lives in Los Angeles.
