"At the time of filming, this was my first lead role in a drama and I was really excited to show my range as an actor. I prepared for the role by digging deep into my emotions.

Portraying one of three sisters, Peachey tapped into her character's inner vulnerabilities and emotional baggage to create a compelling persona that connects with filmgoers.
"Rachel is very straight laced and goes by the rules and I am much more of a think-outside-the-box type of person and getting into that mindset was new for me," she said. "The other actresses, who played my sisters, were absolutely amazing - we couldn't have gotten along better. By the second day of filming, we were acting like real sisters."
Taking on complex characters is not new to the young actress who admittedly thrives on the finding the uniqueness of each role, whether drama, action or comedy.
"I really gravitate towards drama because you get to display more emotion than in the other genres," she said. "However, I also really like comedy! I've always had good comedic timing in real life and it's always fun to act silly and funny to make people laugh."
Having gained the attention of movie goers as the smitten teen Monica in the 2014 coming-of-age drama "The Fault in Our Stars," starring Shailene Woodley, Peachey would go on to work in such films as "Strange Weather," opposite Holly Hunter, and "American Pastoral," starring Ewan McGregor. Her television work includes "13 Reasons Why," "Veep," "Awkward," and many others.
