Savannah Rae | Sydney Graham
Rae was born in Florida, beginning her career at the young age of three. Rae credits her older sister, Emily Rae, an accomplished child actress herself, for instilling the "acting bug" in her. After relocating to California, she booked many roles in television commercials for brands like Rice Krispies, State Farm and Bounty; and a Kraft commercial, which was directed by Peggy Sirato.
Rae's first television audition was for the hit drama series "House." After spending the day on set, she was hooked and continued auditioning for both theatrical and commercial roles. You may recognize her as the little girl who stuffed a toy monkey in her dad's briefcase in the AT&T commercial. Early success continued to follow her and she quickly booked a role playing the younger version of her real-life sister in the film "Phoenix Falling." Some of her other credits include "My Best Friend's Girl" and "Jimmy Kimmel Live" where she "survived" being babysat by Jimmy Kimmel.
She recently just completed the film "Date Night," directed by Shawn Levy, in which she plays the feisty daughter of Steve Carell ("The Office") and Tina Fey ("30 Rock"), who go on a date night while Leighton Meister ("Gossip Girl") plays her babysitter.
Rae has a fantastic imagination and has a Pixie Club with her sister and best friends. She can be found most afternoons playing in Pixie Hollow, which is the big tree in her backyard. She is loving, insightful and has an amazing sense of humor. She loves to sing, especially songs from the musical "Wicked," and loves to spend time with her family, with family game night being her most favorite.
"Parenthood" already seems like a second family to Savannah Paige Rae, who bonded quickly with mom (Erica Christensen) and dad (Sam Jaeger) and thinks Dax Shepard is hysterical. Her favorite scenes to film are the ones where the whole Braverman family is together.
