Biography for Sara Paxton

Sara Paxton (born Apr. 25, 1988 (31 years ago)) is an American actress and singer. She grew up in California and began acting at an early age, appearing in many minor roles in both movies and TV shows, before coming to wider renown in 2004 (15 years ago), after playing the title role in the series Darcy's Wild Life and Sarah Borden in Summerland. Paxton has also starred in the movies Sleepover, Aquamarine, Return to Halloweentown, The Last House on the Left, Sydney White, and Superhero Movie.

Early years

Paxton, an only child, was born in Woodland Hills, Los Angeles, California to what she has described as "a very mixed family." Her father, Steve, is of Irish, Scottish and English descent, and is distantly related to actor Bill Paxton. Her mother, Lucia, was born in Monterrey, Mexico and raised in Ciudad Acuña. Paxton's mother is Jewish and Paxton's father converted to Judaism upon marrying her mother. Paxton speaks some Spanish, although not fluently. Both her parents are dentists.

During her childhood, Paxton put on shows and wanted to perform, sometimes dressing up in costume and coming to school as a particular character. She grew up in the San Fernando Valley, choosing to attend a public high school instead of accepting home-schooling. Paxton graduated high school in Jun. of 2006 (13 years ago).

Career

Paxton has said that singing and acting "went hand in hand" during her early years, though she initially began working as an actress, appearing in musical theater and later in TV commercials at a young age. Her first movie role was a small part in the 1997 (22 years ago) Jim Carrey comedy, Liar Liar. During the late 1990 (29 years ago) and early 2000s, she appeared in a number of minor TV and movie roles, including a part on the soap opera Passions, regular roles on the series Greetings from Tucson and Action, and a guest starring role on the Disney Channel show, Lizzie McGuire starring Hilary Duff (101 walls) playing an ex-president of Lizzie's school. In 2003 (16 years ago), Paxton starred in R. L. Stine's Haunted Lighthouse, a short 3-D movie attraction that still plays at several theme parks across the United States. She also appeared as Lana on CSI: Miami.

Paxton's first major role was in the teen-oriented movie Sleepover, which opened in Jul. 2004 (15 years ago) to negative reviews and low box office revenue; during the same summer season, she appeared in several episodes of the series, Summerland, playing Sarah Borden, a mentally troubled teen who experimented with drugs and sex with Jesse McCartney's character. Paxton was subsequently cast in the lead role of the Discovery Kids TV series, Darcy's Wild Life, playing Darcy Fields, a girl who works at a rural veterinary; the series was filmed on a farm in Toronto and aired from 2004 (15 years ago) to 2006 (13 years ago), often featuring Paxton's music track, Take a Walk. Paxton received an Emmy nomination for the role in 2006 (13 years ago).

In 2005 (14 years ago), Paxton spent three months working on the Australia-filmed Aquamarine, in which she played a mermaid, opposite Emma Roberts (26 walls) and JoJo (26 walls), whom she befriended while filming. Paxton has said that she felt a sense of "female empowerment" while on set because "almost everyone" on set was female. The movie opened on Mar. 3, 2006 (13 years ago) and grossed approximately $7.5 million in its opening weekend. Reviewers of the movie compared Paxton, whose inspiration is Goldie Hawn, to actress Reese Witherspoon (11 walls), saying that she has an "infectious, nutty energy." Paxton recorded a song for the film's soundtrack titled Connected, an English version of the Mexican group RBD's song Tenerte y Quererte from their 2004 (15 years ago) album Rebelde, which has been used in Barbie and the Diamond Castle and covered by Katherine McPhee.

Paxton hosted The Secret Life of Water, the first episode of the series Planet H2O, which premiered in Apr. 2006 (13 years ago) on public TV stations. In May of the same year, she made an appearance on the TV series Pepper Dennis, playing a teen actress. Paxton, who sees herself as an "evolving actress," then appeared in Return to Halloweentown, replacing Kimberly J. Brown in the fourth installment in Disney Channel's Halloweentown series; she dyed her hair brown for the role. The movie aired on Oct. 20, 2006 (13 years ago). During the summer and early fall of 2006 (13 years ago), Paxton filmed The Party Never Stops: Diary of a Binge Drinker, a Lifetime TV film, in Vancouver Island. In the film, she plays Jessie, a college student who falls victim to binge drinking. Paxton has described it as "very different" from her previous roles, and has specified that she was looking for a role that would be a "challenge." The movie aired in Mar. of 2007 (12 years ago). Paxton's next movie role was in Sydney White, a college-set comedy starring Amanda Bynes (9 walls) and Matt Long; filming began on Feb. 12, 2007 (12 years ago) in Orlando, Florida and the movie was released on sep. 21, 2007 (12 years ago). She next starred in Superhero Movie, a parody on superhero movies which began filming in sep. of 2007 (12 years ago) and was released on Mar. 28, 2008 (11 years ago). She also helped co-star Drake Bell record his theme song for the movie, Superhero! Song.

Paxton was signed to a record deal with Epic Records during the time she was cast in Aquamarine. Her debut music CD, The Ups and Downs, featuring the titled single Here We Go Again, is due for release by Epic at some point "in the future"; as of Mar. 2007 (12 years ago), Paxton has not completed work on it. She has described the sound as "pop/rock."

Paxton starred in the remake of The Last House on the Left, playing the lead female character, Mari. The movie opened Mar. 13, 2009 (10 years ago). Her next movie may be Gravy, a horror-comedy with Jena Malone and Winona Ryder (4 walls), and she will also guest star on the show JONAS.

Paxton starred in the CW drama series The Beautiful Life alongside Corbin Bleu, Mischa Barton (82 walls) and Elle Macpherson. The show premiered on sep. 16, 2009 (10 years ago), but was cancelled after 2 episodes. It was later aired online on Youtube. Paxton will next co-star with Scott Eastwood in the thriller Enter Nowhere, and will also play one of the lead roles in the Ti West movie The Innkeepers.

Personal life

Paxton has said that attending college is "very important" to her because "it is important to expand your mind." In 2006 (13 years ago), Paxton applied to the University of Southern California's movie studies program. She has noted that she would like to major in business administration with a minor in history (as she is a "history fanatic") and to start a production company.

Paxton, who keeps a journal, has a dog named Jenny (who was eleven years old as of 2007 (12 years ago)), and a Chihuahua puppy named Coco Chanel. She is friends with her Aquamarine co-stars, JoJo (26 walls) and Emma Roberts (26 walls), and lives "five minutes apart" from Roberts. Paxton has credited her Jewish religion for feeling "very connected" to her family, who keep her "grounded" and are "always number one" in her life. She did not have a Bat Mitzvah because she was busy filming, though she has said that she "wanted to so bad."
