Haley Lu Richardson was born on March 7, 1995, in Phoenix, Arizona, the daughter of Valerie, a marketing and branding professional, and Forrest L. Richardson, a golf course architect. Richardson attended Villa Montessori through Middle School, and later attended Arcadia High School. She was a regular in theatrical productions and regional dance competitions throughout the Southwest. From 2001 through 2011, she was a leading dancer in the Cannedy Dance Company based in Phoenix, Arizona. In 2011, she relocated to Hollywood, California.
In 2013, she began a recurring role as Tess in the ABC Family series Ravenswood. She has appeared as a guest on Disney Channel's Shake It Up and was a co-star in ABC's pilot production Adopted. She played Julina in the Lifetime original movie Escape from Polygamy, alongside Jack Falahee. In 2016, she had a recurring role as Ellie in the Freeform drama series Recovery Road. Her early film career included a leading role in The Last Survivors as well as a supporting performance in The Edge of Seventeen, among other films.
Her breakthrough came in 2017 when she starred as Casey in Columbus. For her work in the film, she was nominated for the 2017 Gotham Independent Film Award for Best Actress. Reviewing Columbus in The New Yorker, critic Richard Brody wrote praise of her performance, "Richardson in particular vaults to the forefront of her generation’s actors with this performance, which virtually sings with emotional and intellectual acuity."
