Biography

Young actors are frequently viewed with derision because of their overly practiced cuteness, but throughout Bailee Madison's short career, she has been lauded for her maturity, her naturalness before the camera and for her approachable likeability. Her first significant credit was appearing in the 2006 crime drama "Lonely Hearts," starring John Travolta, James Gandolfini and Salma Hayek. The film was barely released in the United States, but the following year Madison co-starred in the family film "Bridge to Terabithia" (2007), receiving a major career boost in the process. Her resume quickly bulked up over the next few years, appearing in the season one finale of the science-fiction show "Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles" (Fox, 2008-09), in the hard-hitting domestic drama "Brothers" (2009) -- starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Tobey Maguire and Natalie Portman -- and she was a regular guest character during season four of the Disney program "Wizards of Waverly Place" (Disney, 2007-2012). In 2011, Madison's career hit a new high point when the young actress co-starred with Katie Holmes in the horror film remake "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark."
