Life and Career
Haley Lu was born in March of 1995 in Phoenix, AZ. She comes from a family of right-brained creative people including her supportive parents Valerie (graphic designer) and Forrest Richardson (golf course architect). Haley Lu's desire to entertain was apparent to her and everyone around her from a very early age. At family gatherings she put on shows and was most often caught speaking in a silly accent or pretending to be another character. She went to Villa Montessori school and then on to Arcadia High School. She was involved in a competitive dance company for 8 years and trained 20 hours a week. During that time she won numerous awards and was bestowed prestigious titles within the dance community. She appeared in a number of theatrical plays and local and national commercials. By the end of her sophomore year she knew she belonged in Los Angeles where she could be in the heart of all the action.
She moved to LA in 2011 at the age of 16 and booked her first lead in a feature film, Christmas Twister, which premiered on television and was released on DVD. She also appeared on Disney Channel's Shake It Up and filmed an anti-bullying campaign for Proctor & Gamble. Haley Lu is just beginning her second year of living in Hollywood and is already submersed in her next feature where she is the lead and performing a lot of her own stunts.
Haley Lu also danced on the Microsoft float in the 2012 Rosebowl Parade, appeared in the Disney Just Dance video game, and performed in three music videos for up and coming artists.
