Life and career[edit]

Caitlin Carmichael was born in Tifton, Georgia to Tom and Catherine Carmichael.[citation needed] Her career began when she was three years old. Her family took her on a Disney cruise for her birthday and, while attending a show, she was drawn to the stage and chosen "Princess of the Boat." A couple of months later, John Robert Powers (JRP) talent agency gave the Carmichaels a call for her to audition for The Disney Channel.[citation needed] She attended classes at JRP for modeling, commercials, television and print media. Within two months, she landed a spot after auditioning to attend the International Presentation of Performers in Los Angeles. She was the youngest of approximately 2,500 performers and contestants representing five countries.[citation needed] She received several awards, including first-place Star of the Year; third-place scene; and Top 10 in the categories of Actress of the Year, Headshot and Monologue. Since 2008, she has appeared in a number television shows and films, including Shake It Up, iCarly, Hot in Cleveland, Law & Order: Los Angeles, Criminal Minds.[1][2]

In 2008, Carmichael was handpicked by Jenny McCarthy to play McCarthy’s daughter in the Webisode series “In the Motherhood.”[citation needed]

Carmichael has spent time in New York City shooting a feature film and shooting for print national commercials, including Ralph Lauren for Lord & Taylor, Ann Taylor, Charles Voegele, Dillards, Toys "R" Us and others.

In 2011, she was nominated at the 32nd Young Artist Awards for the short film The Mis-Informant.[3]

In addition to acting, Carmichael spends time taking dance classes (ballet, tap, and hip hop), as well as gymnastics. She also does volunteer work with the Beverly Hills Presbyterian Church, helping feed the homeless.
