|Born and raised in Los Angeles of Russian, German, and African American descent, Hayley Marie knew from a very early age exactly what she was born to do!!! She signed with her first agency at seven years old (per her own request when she loudly declared to her mother, "I wanna be in the TV"), and in that same year, she became a member of The Screen Actors Guild! She traveled all over pursuing both her modeling and acting and even modeled regularly for the African American Barbie doll.
What separates Hayley from the crowd is her respect and loyalty for the craft, and how driven she has always been in making her dreams become a reality. After modeling and acting regularly for several years, Hayley decided to take time off from auditions to study the craft. She went to a performing arts high school (during summer vacations she studied at CalArts, as well as in England, and throughout the US), and was then accepted into The American Academy of Dramatic Arts, a theatrical institution whose alumni include Anne Bancroft, Lauren Bacall, Gena Rowlands, John Cassavetes, Robert Redford, and Adrien Brody, just to name a few. She graduated in 2004. She used the money she had made from acting as a child to finance her education. Shortly after graduation, Hayley signed with an agency where she immediately began to work again.
A week after signing with her agency she booked a supporting role in an ABC movie of the week and hasn't stopped since then. She just wrapped her first studio film where she acted opposite Cuba Gooding Jr, Eddie Murphy, and Thandie Newton. She enjoys modeling as well, especially runway. As you can see, this is only the beginning of what you can expect from Hayley. With her sheer determination, focus (she prefers reading and studying to going out), and talent, Hayley is here for the long haul.
