Courtney has one younger brother, and when her parents divorced, her father remarried her stepmom, Joe Eaton. Courtney grew up alongside her brother and two half-siblings. She attended Bunbury Cathedral Grammar School when she was young.
According to Courtney, she never wanted to be an actress or even knew it was in the cards for her. She was a painfully shy kid who didn’t like drama class in school and was super scared of the idea of performing in front of people.
The turning point of her life came when a modeling agency discovered Courtney as an adolescent; she started getting comfortable in front of the camera. At 11, she was scouted by Christine Fox, the head of Vivien’s Model Management, at a fashion graduation event.
Christine Fox signed Courtney up and prepared her to model at 16. She also participated in an acting workshop with Myles Pollard as part of her modeling development. Around that same time, she moved to Sydney, a massive change and a big city.
Courtney originally had a plan to follow the route of being a professional model and move to New York City after finishing school. However, there were other events on the card for her. She caught the attention of filmmaker George Miller, who saw her photos.
George decided she and Abby Lee Miller would star in his 2015 film Mad Max: Fury Road. So, the actress auditioned in Sydney for the film and landed her first role ever. She got the role of Cheedo the Fragile after just one audition tape.
The older she got, the more she enjoyed acting and found that it was an escape from the limits of the modeling industry. When Courtney was 19 years old, she relocated to Los Angeles and continued to work in her newfound career. Courtney Eaton accumulated a net worth of $700 thousand from her successful career.
Courtney went on to book more movie roles, such as being cast in the fantasy action film “Gods of Egypt” released in 2016. It was her second audition ever, and she played Zaya. That same year, she appeared alongside Ross Lynch in the “Status Update” film.
A few years later, in 2019, Courtney starred opposite Aaron Eckhart in the action thriller film “Line of Duty.” She also had a big break that year when she was cast in a recurring role on the Showtime thriller drama series Yellowjackets as Young Lottie Matthews.
Before her role in Yellowjackets, she had zero TV credits. After Mad Max and Gods of Egypt, she appeared in some indie projects and music videos. Courtney began starring as Lottie in the second season of Yellowjackets.
Outside of acting, Courtney Eaton also pursues her modeling career. She has been signed by some high-profile modeling agencies, including Vivien’s Model, Nova Models, Storm Management, Clyne Model, Tracy, Nils Larsen, and Entertainment 360.
