When she was nineteen she enrolled in Susquehanna University[6] in Pennsylvania. However, Luddington had not been to the university before she came to study, and after six months she left and transferred to the New York Film Academy.[7] She was part of the school's first one year acting class program in 2003.[8] After her acting studies, Luddington then returned to England before moving to Los Angeles to pursue a career in acting.
