Early in her childhood, it was clear that Deborah had the inclination and interest towards the arts. Throughout her grade school years, Woll was immersed in playing the piano and perfecting her skills in dance. It was only in high school that her focus turned into acting when she started being cast as lead player in school productions. After graduation, she continued her path as a stage actress by getting involved with a New York theater company which specialized in cl@ssical productions. After completing a Shakespeare-intensive course, Deborah made her way to Los Angeles to attend the University of Southern California. She preferred USC over the schools in New York, since the students had better access to and more freedom in auditioning for film and television roles while studying.

In 2007, she made her television debut as Nancy Wiscinski, a rape victim, in an episode of NBC's LA cop drama Life. She followed that up with a variety of character portrayals in other network shows such as playing a nurse on ER, a waitress on CSI, a sheltered Camdenite on My Name is Earl, and a teaching assistant on The Mentalist. In 2008, Woll landed the role of her career as she was cast as the bratty and newly-turned teenage vampire Jessica on True Blood. She was initially set to appear in at most three episodes, but the show's producers, impressed by her work, brought her back as a series regular during the second season.
