Profile Bio Text
In Santa Monica, California, on April 11, 2000, Morgan Lily, the talented daughter of Andy Gross made her entrance into the world. Morgan, was a very intelligent, child, gracing show business starting at only three months old. Only a tiny baby, Morgan appeared on the cover of Talbot`s! Magazine. She also was in the prestigious baby magazines such as Disney Baby and Beechnut baby, and even lent her beautiful face to a cause-a PSA Mothers and Children Together Against Violence in 2000. By the age of four, she had been modeling and making appearances in Macy`s, Sara Lee, and Disney Magazines, and already appeared in fashion magazines internationally for Vogue, GQ, Harper`s Bazaar, Cosmopolitan, Elle & Amica. Morganï¿½s first acting job was for Hallmark Motherï¿½s Day commercial, where her adorable face attracted the attention of people everywhere.
After making commercials with Nabisco, Kellogg`s, and appearing again for Hallmark in their Christmas ad, Morgan starred in her first movie entitled Shards. The movie deals with the return of a Solider to his family after the war. Morgan and an assortment of characters helpes him through all the ordeals of family life after a time of tragedy and isolation.
After her performance in Shards, Morgan was cast as Kylie in the made-for-TV 2006 film, Welcome to the Jungle Gym, where she co-starred with actress Jennifer Aspen (Party of Five, Rodney, The Closer.) The lighthearted comedy centered around a working mom who tries to maintain a friendship with her two best girlfriends while raising kids. Her brother was played by Maxwell Perry Cotton (Brothers & Sisters, Dennis the Menace Christmas).
2007 was a big year for Morgan- filming five nationwide commercials for big names like Jif Peanut Butter, Dodge dealerships, and Walmart, becoming a recognizable sight on the television. On May 17th, 2007, the little actress appeared on the intense drama, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation Entitled The Living Doll. Morgan did all her own stunts for the show, which included falling from an elevated tree house. Her character Chloe is killed by her sister, whose father is a ventriloquist. This isnï¿½t too far from real life as she and her actual father are both ventriloquists. Catch the episode online here.
2008 opened with Morgan`s big Sundance debut in Henry Poole is Here starring Luke Wilson, a film about a man who finds out he only has six weeks to live, and retreats from his everyday life for the comfort of solitude and disaster until an apparent miracle and his oddball neighbors look to intervene. Morgan plays Millie Stupek, a mute little girl, starring as the daughter of actress Radha Mitchell(Silent Hill, Finding Neverland). The film was released on April 4, 2008. Later that year Morgan made an appearance as a crying 5 year old girl in the hit romantic comedy, He`s Just Not That Into You which was packed with such stars as Jennifer Aniston, Drew Barrymore, and Ben Affleck.
On the horizon, Morgan has three more projects. Pornstar, a film starring Matthew Grey Gubler (Criminal Minds) where she plays Bethany, which deals with the spiraling out of control life of the racy industry. Its release date is unknown, but still set for 2009. In September through December of 2008 Morgan filmed the upcoming blockbuster 2012 where she plays Lilly Curtis, the daughter of A listers John Cusack and Amanda Peet where her character must face the end of the world which is out December 2009. And lastly Morgan is currently film in Ann Arbor, MI for her upcoming role as Young Juli in the book to film adaptation of Flipped due out sometime in 2010.
In just the nine years of her short life thus far, little Morgan Lily is quite the actress, with an impressive resume and talent enough that there is no doubt this little girl has a very bright future ahead of her.
