Destry Allyn Spielberg (born 1 December 1996) is an American film director and actress. She is the daughter of director Steven Spielberg and actress Kate Capshaw.
Destry Spielberg was born in Los Angeles and is the youngest biological child of Steven Spielberg and his second wife, Kate Capshaw. She has three sisters: Sasha Spielberg, Mikaela Spielberg, and half-sister Jessica Capshaw, as well as three brothers: Sawyer Spielberg, Theo Spielberg, and half-brother Max Spielberg. While pursuing a career in equestrianism, she suffered a “bad accident” which forced her to transition to film. At 19, she was a model for DT Model Management. She is engaged to actor Genc Legrand.
Destry Spielberg played minor roles in I Know This Much Is True and the critically-acclaimed Licorice Pizza and has done production assistant and props work on her father’s films. Finding limited success with acting, she produced, directed, and starred in her own short film, Rosie, in 2019, which screened at the Soho International Film Festival.
In 2022, Destry Spielberg directed the short film Let Me Go (The Right Way), starring Brian d’Arcy James, which premiered at Tribeca and won Best Thriller at the City of Angels Women’s Film Festival. The short, which starred Sean Penn’s son, Hopper Penn, and was written by Stephen King’s son Owen King, attracted criticism from Franklin Leonard and sparked accusations of nepotism. Spielberg refuted this, acknowledging her privileges, and citing her struggles but later deleted the tweet. The short was viewed by Basil Iwanyk, who offered her her first movie. In December 2022, it was announced she would direct Four Assassins (And A Funeral) for Thunder Road Films.
In May 2023, it was announced she would make her feature film directorial debut with Please Don’t Feed the Children, starring Michelle Dockery.
