Biography And Filmography:

Hayden Panettiere has worked on television and films since she was only three years old.  At age five, she was hired and cast as Sarah Roberts on the daytime soap opera “One Life to Live” (1968 ), where she worked until 1995. She then went on to play another role on the daytime soap circuit as Lizzie Spaulding in “Guiding Light” (1952 ), while appearing in small cameo appearances on the science fiction comedy “Aliens in the Family” (1996) and “Touched by an Angel” (1994-2003).

While her official film introduction was in the comedy “Pants on Fire” (1997), Hayden's first wide release movie was “Object of My Affection” (1998), starring Jennifer Aniston. After lending her voice talents as Princess Dot in “A Bug’s Life” (1988) working with a young Ashley Tisdale, she was hired and cast in a small part in “Message in a Bottle” with Kevin Costner (1999), as a young teen girl on a sinking boat, then portrayed  the early version of Doris Duke, a peculiar heiress who inherited $105 million dollars at age thirteen, in “Too Rich: The Secret Life of Doris Duke” (1999). 

While holding down a solid acting career, Panettiere attended South Orangetown Middle School in her native New York, but in eighth grade started home schooling. She received more feature roles, including being cast in “Remember the Titans” with super star Denzel Washington (2000) where she portrayed a ten-year-old football fixated daughter of a washed up high school coach, a part she played with significant courage.

Hayden Panettiere then lent her voice talents to Suri, the tomboy dinosaur daughter in “Dinosaur” (2000), then played a energetic and talented pre-teen in “Joe Somebody” (2000), the sad Tim Allen comedy about a worn down loser who finally gets his chance to become somebody. She then played a Young Jeanne to Hilary Swank’s role in “The Affair of the Necklace” (2001), a dull and snobbish period film about a woman who masterminds a scheme to implicate the rich and famous in the ending years of 18th century France. 

The young actress then returned to television with a regular role in the final season of “Ally McBeal” (1997), playing Maddie Harrington, the long lost daughter of Ally (Calista Flockhart) whose birth was the result of an egg donation gone wrong from ten years earlier. Meanwhile, Panettiere continued her habit of playing spirited young teen girls in the movie “Raising Helen” (2003), playing a disturbed 14 year old girl suddenly in the control of her fashion model sister (Kate Hudson).

In “Normal” (2003), Hayden played the young daughter trying to figure out why her dad (Tom Wilkinson) wants to have a sex change operation. She next appeared as a gifted and attractive young girl who becomes friends with a teenager after an accident shoots him into a fantasy world in the fairy tale, “The Dust Factory” (2003). In “Tiger Cruise” (2004), a Disney Channel  television movie, Panettiere played the lead character role as the daughter of a Navy chief who tries to encourage her dad to retire in the middle of the sudden deployment of his ship to deal with the terror events of September 11, 2001. 

In “Racing Stripes” (2005), Panettiere worked with an all-star cast while she ventured to South Africa to play with live zebras, appearing as one of two human characters in the mostly animated Warner Bros. feature. Next, she was hired and cast in a leading role in “Ice Princess” (2005), portraying Gen Harwood, an ice skating phenomenon who is brutally competing on the United States National circuit. While reviews were both good and bad, box office dollars did not materialize and the production was a flop. 

Hayden Panettiere next starred in the second video sequel “Bring It On: All or Nothing” (2006), playing the daughter of affluent parents who tries to make the cheerleading squad at her new high school after moving to a low class neighborhood. After appearing in an episode of the failed “Commander in Chief” with Geena Davis (2005), she played the trusting and green daughter of a professional con artist who resorts to murder and deception to cover her troubled past. 

She returned to the movie screen to costar in “The Architect” (2006), playing the sexually curious young daughter of an architect whose participation in the knocking down of a dangerous Chicago housing project causes him to face up to issues with his family he would rather forget.

Already in the fast lane to become the next sexy Hollywood celebrity, the actress was shot into the spotlight with the smash hit television series “Heroes” (2006), a comic book era series about eleven regular people from around the world who begin to find they have supernatural powers due to a gene mutation they have had since birth.

Hayden was one of the main characters in the cast, playing Claire Bennet, a high school cheerleader who learns that she is indestructible and becomes a target for extermination by Sylar, a deranged man on a mission to kill the others in order to receive their powers. The task to save her character led the other heroes to “Save the cheerleader, save the world”.  

Panettiere then lent her voice talents to the animated "Hoodwinked 2: Hood vs. Evil" (2008) alongside the famous voice of Glenn Close, where Red Riding Hood is training in the group of Sister Hoods, when her and the Wolf get called over to examine the sudden mysterious missing of Hansel and Gretel. Next was the comedy "I Love You, Beth Cooper" (2009) about a nerdy valedictorian who proclaims his love for the hottest and most popular girl in school during his graduation speech. She wrapped the year with another animation comedy "Alpha and Omega" (2009) starring with Christina Ricci and Justin Long.
