Created by Dan Erickson and directed by Ben Stiller, the science fiction psychological thriller series gained huge acclaim. It was renewed for a second season in April 2022. The series starred actors like Adam Scott, Zach Cherry, and Britt Lower as well.

Buck Has Been Passionate About Acting Since Her Early School Days

As an acting hopeful, Trudy actually began acting in seventh grade and continued to take classes for the next four years. Although there were no film lessons at her high school, Buck had to get creative in instructing herself regarding this medium.

Apart from her huge interest in the field of acting, Joe’s daughter is also in love with stories. She is a bibliophile too.

Her Movies and TV Credits

Falling in love with the cinematic industry very early, Trudy quickly ventured into professional work. She first appeared as Chelsea in a project, Marshall’s Miracle in 2015. The following year, Buck landed her first job as a cinematographer in The Hockkeystick.

She also played the same role in Music for Plants (2021). In the same year, Trudy worked as a producer in The Memory Palace.

Talking about her other works, Trudy was once a general and publicity intern at NEON.

She was born on 15th July 1999. Growing up in the small city of Ladue, Missouri, the celebrity daughter is of German, Irish, and English descent from her father’s side.

She belongs to American nationality.

How Is Her Relationship With Her Parents?

Like any child, Buck has also maintained a healthy relationship with both her mom and dad. She even accompanied her father while attending Vanity Fair And FX’s Annual Primetime Emmy Nominations Party in September 2016 in Beverly Hills, California.

Trudy Belongs to a Family of Sportscasters

Her father, Joe Buck is one of the prominent broadcasters with over three decades of experience in the field. He initially worked for some local TV stations before joining Fox Sports in 1994. He became the youngest man ever to announce a regular lineup of NFL games on the network. Two years later in 1996, Joe started working as a lead play-by-play voice for Major League Baseball on Fox News.

However, after years of association with the network, Buck left it in 2022 and joined ESPN in March of the year.
