Drama. Younger fans know her from her work on The Disney Channel, including the telefilm "Read It and Weep" and a recurring role on "Phil of the Future." Kay also played Lindsey Willows, daughter of Marg Helgenberger's character, on "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation." Other guest appearances include "Grey's Anatomy," "Medium," "Ghost Whisperer," "Boston Legal," "Two and a Half Men" and "Weeds." She most recently guest starred as young Kitty Walker on ABC's "Brothers & Sisters," and also starred in the Lifetime movies "Secrets in the Walls" and "Custody," alongside Rob Morrow and James Denton.

On the big screen Kay recently starred in the remake of "Fame," alongside Kelsey Grammer, Megan Mullally and Bebe Neuwirth. In 2007 she played best friend George to girl sleuth "Nancy Drew" in the feature film adaptation of the classic book series. Additionally, she played the title character in "Moondance Alexander," an award-winning family film which also starred Lori Loughlin and Don Johnson. That role earned her the Dixie Film Festival's award for Outstanding Actor/Actress in a Film. She was also recognized in 2007 for her performance in the Dylan and Cole Sprouse film "A Modern Twain Story: The Prince and The Pauper," receiving the inaugural Rising Star Award at the Temecula Valley International Film Festival.

Extraordinarily focused, Kay was able to accommodate a rigorous academic schedule in addition to her work, graduating as valedictorian of her high school at the age of 13, and then completing her undergraduate work in history at UCLA in March 2007, at the age of 17. That made her the youngest graduate on record for the UCLA History Department.



Born near Houston, Texas and raised in Philadelphia, Atlanta and Chicago, Kay got her start in community theater in Atlanta when she was 8 years old, then made her professional debut in a Chicago Shakespeare Theater production of The Herbal Bed at the age of 9. She won a lead in the film "American Girls: Kit's World" while in Chicago, and followed that with a one-week trip to Los Angeles to test the waters. During her week there, she landed the child lead in the film "Dead Heat," starring Kiefer Sutherland and Anthony LaPaglia, and there was no turning back.
