A Phoenix, Arizona, native, HALEY LU RICHARDSON (Claire Benoit) is a young actress whose career already showcases her wide range of talents and a maturity far beyond her 21 years.

In the few years since her start in Hollywood at 16 years old, she has amassed a sizeable repertoire of film credits, including her most recent accolade as one of just a short list of actors who have ever appeared in lead roles in two full-length features at the Los Angeles Film Festival. Richardson's first feature film was The Last Survivors, a gritty post-apocalyptic thriller that tells a tale of a survivor (Richardson) left behind after a devastating drought. Her second film The Young Kieslowski, also starred Ryan Malgarini. The Last Survivors was released on August 4, 2015, and The Young Kieslowski was released on July 24, 2015.

In March 2016, Richardson appeared in the Sundance Film Festival hit The Bronze as Maggie. Richardson joined executive producers Jay and Mark Duplass and the hilarious cast of Melissa Rauch, Thomas Middleditch, Sebastian Stan, Cecily Strong and Gary Cole in a dark comedy set in the world of gymnastics. Rauch played Hope Greggory, a washed-up former Olympian. She has no career prospects-or even aspirations-until a local rising athlete (Richardson) seeks her help.

Richardson was most recently seen in The Edge of Seventeen, opposite Hailee Steinfeld and Woody Harrelson. The film was released on November 18, 2016, but first premiered as the closing night film at the Toronto International Film Festival.

This past year, Richardson also completed production on Columbus, opposite John Cho and Parker Posey.

Aside from her film credits, she has made a name for herself in the world of television. She currently stars in Recovery Road on Freeform, a new drama that is based on the popular young-adult novel by Blake Nelson. She is best known for her recurring role as Tess throughout the 2013-2014 premiere season of ABC Family's Ravenswood-a supernatural spin-off of the immensely popular Pretty Little Liars series.

Richardson has also appeared in a variety of guest roles on other television programs. In 2013, she was featured as a dancer in Disney Channel's Shake It Up!, which starred Bella Thorne and Zendaya, and as Destiny in the 2013 television movie Adopted. Other guest appearances include her roles as Mackenzie in the television series and web miniseries Awkward. (2014), Cassie Cage in Mortal Kombat X: Generations (2015), Jenna Davis in Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (2015) and Maya in Your Family or Mine (2015). She also appeared as Julina alongside Jack Falahee in the Lifetime original movie Escape from Polygamy.

Richardson currently resides in Los Angeles, California.
