HOTEL FOR DOGS

After 14 years in the entertainment business, 22-year-old KYLA PRATT (HEATHER) has already built an impressive resume with over 40 television appearances, as well as a number of feature film credits to her name. Pratt had a major role in both "Dr. Dolittle 4” and "Dr. Dolittle 5,” reprising the character of Maya, an 18-year-old who has acquired her father's powers to speak to animals.

Prior to the "Dr. Dolittle” sequels 1, 2 and 3, Pratt was seen as the female lead in 20th Century Fox's feature film hit, "Fat Albert.” The film was co-written by creator Bill Cosby and co-starred SNL's Kenan Thompson as Fat Albert, and was directed by Joel Zwick. The movie was released on Christmas Day 2004. Pratt also starred in the lead role of Brianna in UPN's top-rated "One-on- One,” which completed its fifth and final season and is now in syndication. Pratt has received five NAACP Image Award nominations for her role as "Penny Proud” on the Disney Channel's highest-rated animated series "Proud Family.” In the show, she stars opposite Tommy Davidson and Jo Marie Patton. The "Proud Family” movie-of-the-week aired on the Disney Channel in early 2005. The show was voted most popular animated series in America and is also a top favorite among kids on ABC's Saturday morning line-up.

Pratt began her career in 1995 after being cast in "The Babysitters Club,” and has been on a roll ever since. In 1999, she was voted "Favorite Rising Star” at the "Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards.” The term "rising” was correct, by the age of 12, Pratt had appeared in almost 20 supporting, guest-starring and recurring roles on television shows such as "Friends,” "Touched by an Angel,” "Smart Guy,” "Moesha” and "Veronica Mars,” to name just a few. Television viewers may also recognize Kyla as the bold young girl from the Nike commercials who gave advice to the WNBC players.

She also has a very impressive list of motion picture credits and has worked with some of the finest directors and actors in Hollywood. Her feature film credits include "Barneys Great Adventure” directed by Steve Gomer; "Jackies Back” directed by Robert Townsend; "Mad City” starring Dustin Hoffman and John Travolta; "Love & Basketball” produced by Spike Lee; "Dr. Dolittle” and "Dr. Dolittle 2” opposite Eddie Murphy. Her roles in both of the "Dr. Dolittle” movies earned her several NAACP Image Award nominations. Kyla also received a nomination for Best Comedic Actress in an animated movie for "The Proud Family” at the NAACP Image Awards 2006.

When Pratt isn't working, she enjoys dancing, singing, shopping, bowling and hanging out with her friends. She also participates in many charitable events including Challengers Boys & Girls Club fundraisers. She received an award for Best Comedic Performance at the 2003 NAMIC Vision Awards and in the same year she was honored with the Bethel Smith Positive Youth Image Award. Pratt resides in Los Angeles and is enrolled in several college courses.
