Due to her obsession with recreating Disney’s High School Musical with her
brother, Mitchell, when she was seven years old, her mother decided to
send her off to acting classes in a community theatre, in nearby Houston.
In turn, it led to a Broadway audition and a role in the 2012 revival of
Annie. She had to prepare herself for the role by taking dance lessons and
doing vocal training. She was initially the standby for all the orphans,
until the original lead left, when she began alternating the title role
for a few months, then closing the show as Duffy and understudy to Annie.
While still starring in the play, she appeared in the Emmy-winning series
In 2015, she co-starred with Helen Mirren in The Audience on Broadway, as
young Queen Elizabeth II. She also got a small role in Chuck.
In 2017, she played Maxine "Max" Mayfield in the Netflix original Stranger
Things. In December, she was added to the cast of the horror film "Eli,"
starring Charlie Shotwell.
