Hayden Panettiere has an impressive résumé of feature film, television, animation and commercial credits that have made her name synonymous with rising star. Most recently she was seen as the rebellious teen in the Disney comedy “Raising Helen,” opposite Kate Hudson, directed by Gary Marshall, and in the family drama “The Dust Factory.” She stars as an ambitious jockey in the adventure “Racing Stripes” and also recently was seen in the Disney Channel movie, “Tiger Cruise,” a dramatic story based on the events of September 11. She'll next be seen in “Lies My Mother Told Me,” based on a true story, for the Lifetime Network.
Previously, Hayden impressed audiences as the daughter in HBO's highly praised “Normal,” which won a Sundance Film Festival award, with Jessica Lange and Tom Wilkinson as her parents. She also surprised and delighted audiences as the fiery and precocious daughter of Ally McBeal in the final season of the celebrated television series. Her spitfire characters in both “Joe Somebody” as Tim Allen's daughter, and “Remember the Titans,” in which she co-starred with Denzel Washington, established her as a unique talent. Her portrayal of a young Jeanne, played as an adult by Hilary Swank, in “The Affair of the Necklace” is a cameo performance of depth beyond her years. Panettiere's other film credits include “Message in a Bottle” with Kevin Costner and “Object of My Affection” with Jennifer Aniston.
On television, Panettiere's portrayal of Lizzie Spaulding on “Guiding Light” earned her a Hollywood Reporter's nomination for Best Young Actress in a Daytime Series. She appeared as an abused child on “Law & Order: SVU,” as well as the miniseries, “Too Rich: The Secret Life of Doris Duke,” in which she played the distraught young Doris opposite Lauren Bacall. In addition, she starred in “If You Believe” as the magical and intuitive inner-child of Ally Walker for Lifetime, guest-starred on “Touched by an Angel” as a cancer patient opposite Sheri Stringfield, and had a recurring role as an eccentric teenager on “Malcolm in the Middle.” Panettiere's voice is as recognizable as her face, with credits including the acclaimed animated feature “A Bug's Life” as Princess Dot. Her work for “A Bug's Life Read-A-Long” garnered her a Grammy® nomination for Best Spoken Word Album, as well as a nomination for The Hollywood Reporter's Young Star Award for Best Young Voiceover Talent. She is also the voice of Suri in Disney's “Dinosaurs.”
Most recently, Panettiere was named the New Face of Neutrogena. In May, she will receive the Exciting New Face: Female honor at the Movieline's Young Hollywood Awards. And, not only does Panettiere sing the ICE PRINCESS closing-credits song, but she is now in the recording studio working on her debut CD. In addition to being a gifted young actress, Panettiere is an Ambassador for the ICUN Wildlife Foundation, which helps to raise funds for endangered species. Nelson Mandela and Queen Noor are fellow Ambassadors.
