Kathryn Newton

A talented child star, Kathryn Newton saw her career momentum increase exponentially during her teenage years. Born Feb. 8, 1997, Kathryn Newton made her screen debut as Colby Marian Chandler, the young daughter of Liza Colby (Marcy Walker) and Adam Chandler, Sr. (David Canary) on the venerable soap opera "All My Children" (ABC, 1970-2011). After appearing in the shorts "Abbie Down East" (2002) and "Bun-Bun" (2003), Newton booked an even more substantial role on the sitcom "Gary Unmarried" (CBS, 2008-2010) as the wry, wise-beyond-her-years Louise, the overly socially conscious daughter of divorced parents (Jay Mohr and Paula Marshall). Stealing her scenes, Newton won a Young Artist Award and earned two additional nominations for her work on the series, which helped her land a fun supporting role in Cameron Diaz's blockbuster hit comedy "Bad Teacher" (2011) as the unimpressed object of affection of a spectacularly dorky student (Matthew J. Evans). Ascending the Hollywood ranks, Newton earned an even bigger profile boost when she booked the lead role in the horror smash "Paranormal Activity 4" (2012) as a young woman who finds herself and her little brother caught up in a terrifying ghost story.
