“Addy Miller started her career as a child model at the age of four, acting later followed, but she didn’t get her first big break until the age eight when she won the role of Young Lily (Dakota Fanning) in “The Secret Life of Bees”. After setting foot on that set, she knew this was what she was meant to do with her life.
Addy’s most recognized work is on AMC’s original series “The Walking Dead,” cast as the Little Girl/Teddy Bear Walker in the pivotal opening scene that set the tone for the entire show. Fans of the show have raved her scene as “Best Kill”, “Shock of the Week”, “Zombie of the Week”, and declared Addy as an “Instant Horror Legend”. Addy’s most memorable on-set moments were receiving personal direction from the great Frank Darabont, working closely with award-winning make-up artist Greg Nicotero, talking with producer Gale Anne Hurd, and hanging with actors Andrew Lincoln and Sarah Wayne Callies. Addy is so proud of having opted to do her own stunts and doing them well. Mr. Darabont was delighted with the result!
Her character was later named “Summer” in The Walking Dead Social game on Facebook, which also served as her character’s back story. Since filming her part of “The Walking Dead”, Addy has been making numerous public appearances on behalf of the show, mainly at horror and comic conventions all over the US. This has quickly become a favorite activity of hers and her family. Addy gets to reunite with other cast members, as well as meet the amazing Walking Dead fans!
Addy’s most recent film is “Dark Places” as Krissi Cates in 1985. This film stars Charlize Theron, Chloe Grace Moretz, Nicholas Hoult, Christina Hendricks, Drea de Matteo and more. Based on a novel by Gillian Flynn, expect to see this movie hit the theaters in 2015 worldwide.
Addy considers herself a darker actress and likes dramas and tough emotional scenes. Horror is something she does for “fun”. On a personal note, Addy attends a small Christian school. Her favorite subject is English Grammar. For fun, she plays soccer for her school, volunteers at the Autism Society of North Carolina’s Camp Royall, and enjoys time with her two little brothers. Addy’s role models are Dakota Fanning, Taylor Swift, Uma Thurman and Heather O’Rourke.“
