Born in Los Angeles, California, Holland is the daughter of Keith Holland, a cinematographer, and Darnell Gregorio-De Palma, an actress, so her choice of career is unsurprising. She attended Kenter Canyon Elementary School, and later on Paul Revere Middle School and Palisades Charter High School.

Ex-stepdaughter of film director Brian De Palma. He took her to a talent agency when she was just seven years old and the rest is history.
The fashion world has always been part of my life.
I think that at 21, I still look like I'm 17 years old, so I feel like I'm going to be playing teenagers for a while, and that's a very relatable stage in a teenage life for a female - that kind of rambunctious stage.
I'm so proud of this show and I'm really stoked that fans were so enthusiastic about the show so quickly. I mean, I got recognized for 'Arrow' at the airport when I was headed to Vancouver to shoot the second episode. That was kind of crazy.
It's so much fun to play the bad girl. Everybody has that little side of them they never really get to get out.
Adapting a Judy Blume book is something I really wanted to do, and you couldn't grow up in the '90s without knowing about 'Tiger Eyes' and reading it. It should've been assigned to all teenage girls.
I enjoyed The O.C. (2003) immensely but I want to expand my horizons more before repeating myself.
I like long floaty clothes that don't restrict me, and I live in flat boots.
