Biography[edit]

She is the daughter of former Connecticut State Senator Gary Hale and Barbara Duncan.

Hale's passion for entertainment sparked at an early age. Local pageants, theatre productions and commercials allowed Hale to showcase her acting, singing and dancing talents competitively. At age 3 she appeared in The Nutcracker at the New England Ballet Theatre, and later played the lead in Annie at Sacred Heart University. She has sung the national anthem at University of Connecticut men and women’s basketball games, and the state Republican convention.[1]

In 2002, Hale began auditioning in New York City and launched her professional acting career with a day-playing role on soap opera All My Children. Her claim to fame was in 2003, playing Marta, the giggly, blonde back-up singer with the pigtail braids, in Richard Linklater's School of Rock.

In 2013, she graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and Public Relations from The Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University. She is an active member of the Delta Gamma sorority.

Hale currently lives in Los Angeles, CA, pursuing her entertainment career.
