BAILEE MADISON (Samantha Perryfield) At
just ten years of age, Bailee possesses an illuminating
presence that is evident in each role she takes. With inherent charm, sharp intelligence, and a vibrant
personality, the young actress leaves a lasting impression on
everyone she meets.
Best known for capturing the hearts of millions with
her role as May Belle in Bridge to Terabithia, Bailee
has also left lasting impressions with her performances
in the feature film Brothers (with Natalie Portman, Jake
Gyllenhaal and Tobey Maguire), Phoebe in Wonderland (with Felicity Huffman and Elle Fanning) and on
the small screen in Nickelodeon's Christmas time hit,
Merry Christmas Drake and Josh.
Bailee's talent as an actress will soon be on display
in a variety of diverse and demanding roles, co-starring
with some of the industry's biggest stars. In 2010 she has
no less than five feature films being released including,
An Invisible Sign of My Own (with Jessica Alba), Betty
Anne Waters (with Hilary Swank), Eloise in Africa (An
Animated Film) and finally, Guillermo del Toro's Don't
Be Afraid Of The Dark (with Katie Holmes and Guy
Pearce) in which she has the starring role.
Bailee recently signed on to co-star opposite Adam
Sandler and Jennifer Aniston in the latest film going
into production for Happy Madison and Sony Pictures.
This young actress began her career when she was
only two weeks old in an Office Depot commercial.
One of her first roles was in the movie Lonely Hearts,
in which she starred on the big screen alongside Salma
Hayek and John Travolta.
Bailee's magnetic personality was highlighted when
she appeared as a guest on The Tonight Show with Jay
Leno in March of 2007.
Bailee has often been described as an "old soul",
someone whose unique combination of sensitivity,
strength, and emotion is well beyond her years. However,
this Florida native still enjoys the simple activities of any nine year old, especially cooking, riding her
bike, and playing with her friends.
