Hayden Panettiere has a child-star youth. At the age of eleven months already, her parents put her through castings and she shoots many commercials. At the age of 9, Hayden began her career in cinema and appeared, among others, in L’Objet de mon affection, A bottle in the sea or Le Plus beau des combats. She worked on her voice at a very young age and thus participated in the vocal castings of animated films such as 1001 Pattes and Dinosaur.
Television gradually enabled her to become known to a big audience. In 2001, she played the daughter of Calista Flockhart in Ally McBeal. She continued with supporting roles in New York District and Malcolm. But it is thanks to the Heroes series, in 2006, that she acquired international fame by playing the character of Claire Bennet, the reckless cheerleader with incredible regenerating abilities.
This fame makes her go straight to sixth place in the FHM ranking of the sexiest women in the world. She takes the opportunity to lend her name to various brands but above all to support associations that are close to her heart, in particular for the protection of dolphins.
Without ever stopping the series – she is the actress who has played in the greatest number of episodes – she multiplies the projects in the cinema with more or less success, including I Love You, Beth Cooper and Shanghai Kiss.
She also takes advantage of her new notoriety to realize one of her childhood dreams: to record an album. The Pop / Rock “Fallen love” was released in February 2008 and was a success. Her voice, she also always uses it for dubbing animated films and video games. This is how she is Little Red Riding Hood in The Revenge of Little Red Riding Hood, in 2010, replacing Anne Hathaway.
But it is quite different than she will give voice in 2011 since she embodies one of the “screamers” of Scream 4, the last part of the horror saga.
