Danielle Panabaker Biography

Danielle Nicole Panabaker (born September 19, 1987) is an American actress, best known for starring in several films and television programs appealing to kids/teen audiences.


Danielle Panabaker was born in Georgia, the eldest of two children; she has a sister, Kay, who is also an actress. She started acting in a community theater at the age of ten, later auditioning for commercials. After graduating from a local high school as a valedictorian at the age of 14, she was accepted to the Scholar's Program at a local community college, a privilege extended to only a small percentage of students. In 2002, after her father's job resulted in the family's relocation to Naperville, Illinois, Panabaker, feeling that she had only one way in which to get acting roles regularly, relocated to Los Angeles, California in order to pursue an acting career.

Danielle Panabaker followed her initial appearances in commercials with roles on television, including a part in the series, The Guardian (for which she won a Young Artist Award), as well as a few other major television series, including Malcolm in the Middle, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Stuck in the Suburbs and Summerland. She has also appeared in the Lifetime Television productions S-- and the Single Mom and Mom at Sixteen, as well as the well-reviewed mini-series Empire Falls.

In 2005, Danielle Panabaker co-starred in two widely released theatrical films, Sky High and the remake of the film Yours, Mine and Ours. Her next role will be in the film Home of the Giants, opposite Ryan Merriman and Haley Joel Osment.

Panabaker was added to the cast of the CBS television drama pilot Shark.

Danielle Panabaker has a Yorkshire terrier, Peanut, and enjoys shopping, reading and dancing. She lives in Los Angeles with her family. She also recently added another Yorkshire terrier to the family who is named Butter.
