Biographical information

Personal life

Schull was born in Honolulu, Hawaii. She attended Punahou School and trained at Hawaii State Ballet under the instruction of John Landovsky. As shown in her biographies, she attributes her training to Ballet Hawaii as well. After years of training she was offered a full scholarship to Indiana University for ballet. While at Indiana University she joined Delta Delta Delta. During Schull's sophomore year (as a ballet and journalism major) she attended the San Francisco Ballet School Summer Intensive. SFBS subsequently offered Schull a scholarship to continue her studies for an additional year.


When Schull's year-long scholarship ended in 1999, San Francisco Ballet's artistic director offered her an apprenticeship which she accepted. Schull was cast in the starring role of Jody Sawyer in the 2000 movie Center Stage while still an apprentice with SFB. She subsequently joined SFB as a full-time member of its corps de ballet.

In the fall of 2000, she got the role of Davina Mayhan, Midge's older sister in the sitcom My Family And Me, replacing actress Cassidy Rae in the third season.

In April 2006, Schull retired from San Francisco Ballet. In May 2008 she went to Australia to film the movie adaptation of Li Cunxin's Mao's Last Dancer. In Mao's Last Dancer, released in North America in 2010, Schull has a major role as Elizabeth "Liz" Mackey, the girlfriend (and later, first wife) of Li Cunxin.

In 2009, Schull had a guest star role on the Fox TV show, Lie to Me. She was recently seen in the Lifetime Movie Sorority Wars starring Lucy Hale and Courtney Thorne-Smith. She also guest stars on The CW's One Tree Hill as Sara, the spirit and memory of the deceased wife of Clay, played by Robert Buckley, and also as Clay's wannabe lover who bears a striking resemblance to Sara - Katie Ryan. She guest starred in an episode of Ghost Whisperer in 2009, and an episode of Bones in 2010. Schull stars as Meredith in the ABC Family series Pretty Little Liars. She also appeared in an episode of Hawaii Five-0. In March 2012, she appeared in a McDonald's commercial for the Shamrock Shake and in April she guest starred in an episode of Psych. She has also just recently appeared in an episode of "Grimm" as Lucinda, a character who resembles Cinderella with a twist.
