Actress Host Model Taylor Hay on ActorsE Chat with Kurt Kelly
Born in San Diego, California, Taylor Hay began acting at the age of four when she was cast in the first commercial she ever auditioned for. She was introduced to the industry by her mother, actress Debbie Britt-Hay, but was the driving force to making this profession her life’s work. She worked steadily, building her body of work, until she was diagnosed with cancer at the age of nine. With that news, everything came to a halt. Once she regained her health, Taylor plunged back into her career, excited to be working again.
In a short time, Taylor booked her first voice-over role, Yes, Virginia, in addition to several web and television projects, as well as several feature films. She adding singing to her dancing background and is working hard on incorporating those skills into her acting portfolio.
Aside from acting, Taylor is a nationally titled equestrian, winning titles in multiple disciplines in the Arabian breed. In 2011, she added six national Top Tens to her existing titles, all before the age of 13.
Because of her illness, Taylor is an avid advocate of many non-profits including the Make A Wish Foundation, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Rady Children’s Hospital, Alex’s Lemonade Stand, and Redlight Traffic. She’s vowed to help give back whenever she can to ensure these organizations can continue to help children stricken with cancer.
In 2012, Taylor hosted her first ever Star for a Night, an event she created to celebrate the lives of youth cancer survivors. The event featured sixteen patients and survivors who were treated to a star-filled night where they walked the red carpet and received autographs from some of their favorite stars. Performances by teen heartthrob Cody Longo and Brittany Underwood, and dance performances by the jerk hip hop team The Avengers, were the hit of the night. All ticket sales went to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. At the end of the evening, almost $6,000 had been raised for LLS. Through this connection, Cody and Taylor joined forces to create the video for his hit single, Electic, in the hopes that it will empower all young cancer patients to never give up.
In 2014, Taylor hosted her second Star for a Night, this time to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Wish kids were invited to spend the night with over sixty celebrities and were treated to celebrity performances, incredible food, a photo booth, henna tatoos, and much more with all net proceeds going to Make-A-Wish.
