Kay Panabaker is one of Hollywood's most sought after young actors with numerous television, stage and film credits as well as a history degree from UCLA - all earned before she turned 18.
Kay's television credits include "No Ordinary Family," "Brothers and Sisters," the Lifetime movie "Secrets in the Walls" and "Summerland," for which she won the Young Artist Award for Best Performance by a Leading Young Actress in a TV Series - Comedy or Drama. Younger fans know her from her work on Disney Channel, including the telefilm "Read It and Weep" and a recurring role on "Phil of the Future." Kay also played Lindsey Willows, daughter of Marg Helgenberger's character on "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation." Her other television credits include "Grey's Anatomy," "Medium," "Ghost Whisperer," "Boston Legal," "Two and a Half Men" and "Weeds."
Kay is also no stranger to the big screen; she has starred in movies such as "Nancy Drew," "Moondance Alexander," "A Modern Twain Story: The Prince and the Pauper," the MGM remake of "Fame," "The Lake Effect" and "Little Birds."
Extraordinarily focused, Kay was able to accommodate a rigorous academic schedule in addition to her work, graduating as valedictorian of her high school at the age of 13 and then completing her undergraduate work in history at UCLA in March 2007, at the age of 17. That made her the youngest graduate on record for the UCLA History Department - which is ranked 9th in the nation.
