Mini Bio (1)

Born in San Diego, CA, Taylor Hay began acting at the age of four when she was cast in the first commercial she ever auditioned for. She worked steadily, building her body of work, until she was diagnosed with cancer at the age of nine. With that news, everything came to a halt. Once she regained her health, Taylor plunged back into her career, excited to be working again.

In a short time, Taylor booked her first voiceover role, Yes, Virginia, several web and television projects, and several feature films. As her career gained momentum again, she worked hard at her craft, securing the series lead role of Quinn Reynolds and booking two network shows. Aside from acting, Taylor is a nationally titled equestrian, winning titles in multiple disciplines in the Arabian breed. In 2011, she added six national Top Tens to her existing titles, all before the age of thirteen.

Because of her illness, Taylor is an avid advocate of many non-profits including the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Alex's Lemonade Stand, Cancer for College (where she's worked with Will Ferrell), Rady Children's Hospital, A Place Called Home, Redlight Traffic, and Ronald McDonald House. She's vowed to help give back whenever she can to ensure these organizations can continue to help children with life-threatening illnesses.

Taylor is also the founder and host for Star for a Night, an event to celebrate the lives of youth facing life-threatening illnesses. The bi-annual event is a charity fundraiser, supporting a variety of charities dedicated to helping children in need. 2016 marked the third anniversary of the event. To date, nearly $15K has been raised for charity through Star for a Night. She is hoping each year will be bigger and better than the previous.
