Rileah Vanderbilt is an American TV and film actress. She is known for starring in films such as the "Hatchet" series and "Frozen" (2010), as well as for her various roles on the series "Team Unicorn."
Rileah Elizabeth Hayes, the oldest of three siblings, was born and raised in a small mountain town known as Cripple Creek, Colorado. There, she grew up much like your average American teenager, playing sports such as volleyball, basketball, track, and baseball, while at the same time participating as a school cheerleader, too. Around the same time, Rileah also began to take an interest in acting, becoming regularly involved in school and community theatre.
By the time Rileah graduated high school, she decided she wanted to pursue acting as a career, so she moved to Los Angeles, California with the dream of doing just that. Prior to landing her first official film role in 2006's "Hatchet" (which would eventually go on to spawn numerous sequels which Rileah also starred in), she enrolled at the Make-up Designory in Burbank, California, a trade school specializing in film and television beauty, character, and SFX make-up. It was because of this experience that she was cast as Young Victor Crowley in the original "Hatchet" film in the first place.
Since finally making it as an actress, Rileah has not only gone on to star in famous films such as "Spiral" and the 2010's "Frozen" (not to be confused with the animated Disney film), but along with fellow actress Clare Grant, started production companies Danger Maiden Productions and Team Unicorn. Among some of their biggest products include the "Saber" series of short films, with the original having won two awards at the 2009 Star Wars Fan Film Awards for "Best Action" and "Audience Choice."
