Oregon native Haley Talbot began her life of performing as a highly decorated dancer. After cleaning up at several regional youth competitions, she left high school to become Oregon Ballet Theater's youngest member, at age 15. Her dancing career was cut short by health issues, which resulted in her ultimately needing two kidney transplants.

Her love of life and those around her was cemented by her father donating one of the kidneys she needed. While recovering from her surgeries, she found a new passion in acting classes and workshops. She has since collected some impressive credits, including guest star turns on NBC's 'Grimm', TNT's 'Leverage', and lead roles in several feature films.

As well as treasuring her acting career and all of the experiences it offers her, Haley is also a biochemistry major at Portland State University, and full-time mom to her beautiful daughter.
