Deyn later moved to Failsworth near Oldham.

The daughter of a nurse, Lorraine, and second of three children she moved to Rossendale, Lancashire, and attended All Saints Roman Catholic High School, as well as Bacup and Rawtenstall Grammar School and Sixth Form in Waterfoot, Rossendale.
Deyn’s name was apparently coined to further her modelling career after she consulted her mother’s friend, a numerology expert who advised her of the most ‘fortuitous’ way to spell the name ‘Agnes’.

It was reported that her mother Lorraine and sister Emily have both changed their surname to Deyn, while Lorraine has changed the I in her first name to Y.

 
Deyn’s working life started at a fish and chip shop in Stubbins, Rossendale, where she was a part-time server at the age of 13. Even at an early age she had an eye for style and by 17 she had already had her head shaved. “I’ve had short hair since I was 13, and when I was 17, I had a skinhead.”

In 1999, Agyness Deyn won the Rossendale Free Press “Face of ’99” competition, aged just 16. She then moved to London, working in a fast-food restaurant during the day and a bar at night but admits: “It didn’t quite work.”

During this time she says she was also at college in Hull, studying drama and music.

In the 2010 film Clash of the Titans, Deyn played Aphrodite, Greek goddess of beauty, love, and sex.
In March 2011, Deyn appeared as an owl-bearing warrior in Woodkid’s debut music video, “Iron”.
In 2012, Deyn starred opposite Richard Coyle in Pusher, an English language remake of Nicolas Winding Refn’s Danish cult classic, where she played Flo, a strong-minded stripper.
On 28 February 2012, Deyn played her first role on the West End stage, as Paula in François Archambault’s comedy, The Leisure Society.

After receiving excellent reviews for her role in that play, Deyn has moved from the stage to the big screen and is set to play the main female role, Chris Guthrie, in a film adaptation of the iconic Scottish-set novel Sunset Song.
