Biography

This champion clog dancer auditioned for the major role of Nick Nolte's bratty daughter in James L. Brooks' Hollywood-set comedy-drama "I'll Do Anything" (1994) when she was 4 1/2 and won the part on her fifth birthday. As the six year old Jeannie Hobbs, Wright had the opportunity to sing, dance, pout, cry and throw temper tantrums with considerable abandon. She followed with a turn as the kidnapped daughter of Jean-Claude Van Damme in "Sudden Death" (1995), a thriller set in a hockey arena.
