A CINDERELLA STORY

With a triple platinum solo debut album, two upcoming feature films and a hit television series, HILARY DUFF (Sam/Cinderella) is one of Hollywood's fastest rising stars. 

The dynamic young actress garnered world-wide recognition as the star of Disney Channel's Emmy-nominated hit series Lizzie McGuire in which she portrayed a teen navigating the turbulence of middle school cliques, trendy styles and rites of passage while her animated, brassy alter ego gives running commentary. Lizzie McGuire premiered in January 2001 and can currently be seen every day at 7:30 p.m. on Disney Channel and Saturdays at 10:00 a.m. on the ABC Television Network.

In May 2003, Duff brought her character to the big screen with Walt Disney Picture's hit comedy The Lizzie McGuire Movie. In addition, Duff co-starred in March 2003 with Frankie Muniz in the MGM film Agent Cody Banks. The in-demand actress also co-starred in the 20th Century Fox hit Cheaper By The Dozen with Steve Martin and Bonnie Hunt, released December 25th, and recently completed filming New Line's Heart Of Summer with Rita Wilson, Jason Ritter and Oliver James. 

In 2002, Duff starred in the blockbuster Cadet Kelly, which ranks as Disney Channel's highest rated original movie ever, the top-rated movie on both broadcast and cable television for its premiere week and cable television's highest rated movie to date in 2002.

The multi-talented Duff has crossed over to other platforms, making her singing debut with the single "I Can't Wait” on the Lizzie McGuire soundtrack from Walt Disney Records. The song quickly catapulted up the charts on Radio Disney and the album was certified Gold by the R.I.A.A. last December. She followed her successful debut with the release of her own Christmas-themed album, "Santa Claus Lane,” from Walt Disney Records. In addition, Duff performed "The Tiki Tiki Room" on the Disneymania album. The Lizzie McGuire Movie soundtrack on which she performed two songs including the hit "Why Not” entered the Billboard soundtrack charts at #1 and was certified Platinum in June 2003. In August 2003, she released her Triple Platinum solo debut album, Metamorphosis, which it reached #1 on the Billboard charts its second week. She is currently on a national concert tour. 

Duff's enormous popularity was further proven with a nomination for Favorite Television Actress for Nickelodeon's 15th Annual Kids' Choice Awards and she accepted the award for Lizzie McGuire, which was voted Favorite Television Series in both 2002 and 2003. She was also named Choice Breakout Female Movie Star for The Lizzie McGuire Movie at the 2003 Teen Choice Awards on FOX and was recently honored with the Rising Star Award by Big Brothers, Big Sisters. 

Duff made her stage debut at age six with BalletMet Columbus and its touring company of The Nutcracker. Her subsequent role in a television commercial spurred her longing to act and she soon amassed several television and film credits.

On television, she was featured in the mini-series True Women with Dana Delaney and Rachel Leigh Cook, in Soul Collector which earned her a Young Artist Award for Best Supporting Actress, and in a guest-starring role on Chicago Hope. She had theatrical roles in Playing by Heart with Sean Connery, Dennis Quaid and Gena Rowlands, as the friendly ghost's best friend, Wendy, in the successful video release Casper Meets Wendy, and in the Cannes Film Festival favorite Human Nature with Tim Robbins.  Born September 28, 1987, Duff splits her time between homes in Houston and Los Angeles with her parents, sister and two dogs. Duff has served on the Advisory Board of the Audrey Hepburn Child Benefit Fund and is actively involved in Kids with a Cause, which helps disadvantaged youth around the world.
