Ella Rae Peck stars in NBC's midseason drama Deception as whip-smart and smart-mouthed Mia Bowers, daughter of Robert and Sofia Bowers and half-sister to Vivian, Julian and Edward. Unlike her conspicuous older siblings, Mia has always preferred to keep a low profile, earning straight A's at her elite Upper East Side prep school and hanging out at downtown gallery openings. When dark family secrets begin to come to light, Mia questions whether anyone in her family can be trusted. Last year, Peck could be seen as the long-lost Lola Rhodes on the CW's hit show Gossip Girl. In addition to her appearances in Jason Reitman's Young Adult and Leslye Headland's Bachelorette, which premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, Ella Rae includes among her recent work leading roles in the indie films "God Don't Make the Laws" and "The Exhibitionists."

Peck made her debut as the lead in the independent pilot "Dear Harvard," for which she won Best Actress at the New York Television Festival. Additional TV credits include Without a Trace, Law & Order, The Good Wife and Blue Bloods.
