Traja Gaj Golightly (born September 5, 1993), professionally known as Gage Golightly and formerly as Gage Stevens, is an American actress. She is best known for her role as Hayley Steele in the Nickelodeon series The Troop (2009–2011) and for her role as Erica Reyes on the MTV series Teen Wolf.


Golightly co-starred in the sci-fi miniseries 5ive Days to Midnight and the TNT series Heartland. She has also appeared in Speakeasy, Sudbury, A Carol Christmas, The Long Shot, and the Disney Channel sitcom The Suite Life of Zack & Cody as Vanessa. She portrayed Hayley in the Nickelodeon series The Troop, a series about a group of teenagers who fight monsters.

In 2012, Golightly had a recurring role on the MTV series Teen Wolf as Erica Reyes, a Beacon Hills High School student who is the first female werewolf of Derek Hale's wolf pack. Golightly's character's fate was left unknown in the season 2 finale due to the actress leaving the show during early stages of filming for the show's third season as she had been cast in a pilot for The CW titled, "Company Town." In May 2013, it was announced that the pilot had not been green lighted. It was later confirmed that Golightly would not be rejoining the cast for the third season of Teen Wolf.[1]despite her availability after the "Company Town" pilot was shot down, and her character in Teen Wolf show was killed off. Throughout 2011-2012 Golightly worked on a Marcus Nispel horror film titled Backmask, for which the release date is currently TBA. Golightly also worked on a project titled Vanished for the Lifetime network, playing the character of Matty. The film's title was later changed to Gone Missing. Months after Golightly's departure from Teen Wolf was confirmed, the show's official social media pages posted a picture of Golightly on the set of the show with "surprise" as the caption. It was later confirmed that Golightly returned to Teen Wolf only to film her character's final scenes. In June 2014, Golightly was cast as Karen in an Amazon Studios comedy pilot titled "Red Oaks."[2]
