Born September 20, 1995 in Scottsdale, Arizona, Sammi Hanratty is the youngest of five daughters, and an accomplished actress with several television and commercial projects under her young belt.
When Hanratty was two years old, her family moved to California, at which point she decided that she wanted to be on television. When she was six years old Sammi’s mother took her to meet a Los Angeles talent agent, and she had multiple jobs lined up within days. Hanratty then booked a commercial for Oil of Olay that aired for two years, and many more commercials to follow, including for Pringles, McDonald’s, Build-A-Bear, Swiffer, and voiceovers for the Disney Channel.
Hanratty has guest starred on several television programs, including Nickelodeon’s Drake and Josh, the WB’s Charmed, Fox’s House, and Disney’s That’s So Raven. She has been cast in recurring roles on Disney’s the Suite Life of Zack and Cody and CBS’s The Unit, and most recently in the critically-acclaimed, Emmy-winning ABC series Pushing Daisies as the young Charlotte Charles. Hanratty plays a supporting role as Gretel in the upcoming major motion picture Jack and the Beanstalk.
